What a whirlwind of a weekend! We’d been counting down to the Vaper Expo for no less than six whole months and when it finally arrived, it was even bigger, and better, than we could have ever imagined. And the icing on the cake? Winning two of the vape industry’s most prestigious awards!
Before we regale you with our thoughts on the immense Vaper Expo - we simply MUST tell you about our big news of the weekend…
We’ve just bagged ourselves not one, but TWO industry awards!
You heard it right. We’re absolutely thrilled to have won the award for ‘Best Up and Coming Brand’ and the runner up trophy for ‘Best Branding and Marketing’ at the annual Vapouround Awards on Friday night. The novelty of which probably won’t wear off for a number of months – we’ve been buzzing about it at HQ all week.
It’s a huge milestone for our brand and for our small team, whom we’re so grateful to for constantly rolling their sleeves up and getting stuck in. Building a brand from scratch is no mean feat, but thanks to our people we’re rapidly becoming one of the biggest players in the industry and we can’t wait to see what the rest of 2019 holds for Red Liquids.
Though before we go getting all sentimental – how about that expo?!
We knew that when the doors opened on Friday for the start of this year’s Vaper Expo, it was going to be a good weekend.
What an understatement that was!
For three days solid, it was absolute madness (in the best way) at the Birmingham NEC, as thousands of vape enthusiasts swamped the halls to visit their favourite liquid and tech brands. We couldn’t have been more thrilled with the amount of engagement and great feedback we received on the Red Liquids booth, especially in light of the grand launch of our brand new RedCBD range, which had an unbelievable response.
We sold to consumers throughout the weekend and had a number of total sellouts, including the delicious 21 Vape Parma Violets juice, the new Blackcurrant and Lemonade Salts and two of the nostalgic Red Slush flavours. It was fantastic to meet so many fans, influencers and the wider vaping community each day.
Aside from showcasing our phenomenal range of liquids, we also ran a weekend-long competition for a chance to win a VIP experience day at the Ferrari Challenge Championship. Hundreds of vapers entered, trying their luck at our Blackjack table and blimey, there are a lot of pro’s out there in the vaping world! Keep your eye’s peeled as we announce the winner on social very soon.
Whichever day you attended, you will have no doubt seen the stunning Red Liquid Girls handing out goodies and getting involved in plenty of photo opportunities. We welcomed three new members to the team this year – Ashleigh, Ellie, and Natasha – who absolutely nailed it. The army of girls also took to the stage on Saturday, where lots of Red Liquids freebies rained down on the audience. If you managed to catch one of our juices – don’t forget to let us know what you think of the flavours.
During the event, we were proud to sponsor the Vapouround Cup 2019 FIFA tournament, where we also competed and got as far as the final! After an incredibly tough semi-final against Vampire Vape, we just missed out in an intense game against Horizon Vape Distro. Big congrats to those guys, it was very well-deserved!
