EFVI refused at Vapefest 2014
A request was sent to the organisers of Vapefest to see if EFVI could have a presence at Vapefest2014, perhaps a table where members of the public could come and find out more about the initiative and how it works etc, and perhaps to sign the initiative if they wanted to. This request has been denied by the Vapefest committee, as they have said that:

"The committee feel EFVI is amply represented on the ukvapefest.com website.

As Vapefest is open to all regardless of political allegiance or whether a petition has been signed, the committee do not feel it appropriate to agree any such requests for the duration of the event.

Thanks "

I think most of you will agree that Vapefest would be a great opportunity to generate many more signatures for EFVI and as an organisation that is supportive of Vaping ('Vape'fest, the clue is in the name...), i would have thought the Vapefest committee would have welcomed this opportunity with open arms. I personally cannot see the reasoning behind this, and find it unbelievable, especially after all the pushing we've all been doing for EFVI of late.

I have been following this, at this time I (Sav me, not Sav VTTV) feel its best to take a breath and see what happens. Wayne (VF Organiser) is looking into what can be done, and with some luck a compromise will be found that suits everyone.

RE: EFVI refused at Vapefest 2014
The Vapefest organiser and the representative of EFVI UK would like to make a joint statement.






It was not the intention of the Vapefest committee or EFVI to cause rifts in the vaping community and apologies are offered for any distress that may have been caused over the last couple of days.




Amicable discussion has taken place and an agreement has been reached.


Sorted.....

EFVI will have a stall at Vapefest.




We hope this puts the matter to rest and everyone can enjoy a great day as a result

I am delighted its sorted, as I was sure it would be.

It's perfectly understandable that some folks would want a Politics free day, the constant battles to win this war do wear us all down. But I think the committee have shown great wisdom by allowing the vaper to make his or her own choices..
