National Vapers Club Presents New York Vapefest 2013

An e-cigarette convention and fundraiser, March 22-23

NEW YORK, February 1, 2013…National Vapers Club announces New York Vapefest in Rockville Centre, NY, an event to promote research and education for e-cigarette users while providing a venue for the latest products. 

Vapefest, the first annual e-cigarette convention, fundraiser and educational forum, funds research into the safety of e-cigarettes. Previous events funded a peer-reviewed air quality study, published last fall in Inhalation Toxicology, that determined e-cigarette emissions pose no apparent risk to human health.

Numerous vendors will be represented and provide free product samples. Classes will be offered on all aspects of e-cigarette use.  There will be a raffle with more than $2000 in prizes.

Adults over 18 are invited to the Mill River Manor Best Western, Rockville Centre, NY, Friday and Saturday, March 22 and 23, 2pm-10pm. Free entry for smokers. Details at www.vapefest.com.
