Driving growth back into the vaping, reduced risk products and nicotine replacement category


Wednesday November 28 | 10am | 200 SVS, Glasgow


The vaping market is set for another explosion as both Holyrood and Westminster appear to be finally embracing the potential of vaping and reduced-risk products to cut smoking levels.

Vaping sales have stalled in convenience even though the market remains in solid growth. Only around 15% of sales go through local retailers, with the rest accounted for by online and specialist vape shops.

This conference will help retailers rethink their approach to vaping, so they can claim a bigger slice of a £1bn opportunity.

The list of speakers is exceptional and features Juul – the first time we’re aware of that the American vaping sensation has spoken publicly in the UK.

If you’re interested in attending or speaking email events@55north.co.uk or call Cara on 0141 2225381.For exhibition or sponsorship enquiries, contact Robert on 0141 222 5302 or raitken@55north.co.uk.
