Vapouround Awards' Highlights
The sixth annual Vapouround Awards evening was our biggest and best ceremony yet. As our first live event in two years, we wanted to take things further than ever before and ensure that it was an extra special night.
We chose a date to coincide with World Vape Show Dubai – the first international vape expo in the UAE – and, with that sorted, needed to find a suitable venue. So, when one of our marketing team said we must ‘really push the boat’ out for this event, we knew exactly what to do!
We hired the Lotus Mega Yacht – a 220-feet-long ‘floating mansion of the sea’ – and set sail for a evening of drinks and celebration. Sparing no expense, we added an open bar, live music, a banging disco and an onboard magician to the mix, ensuring everyone was in the party spirit. We even reunited veteran Vapouround Awards hosts Johnnie Lovell from BH Vape and Ashley Hansen to complete the show.
The result was a night full of laughter and good times, with this year’s 23 Vapouround Awards winners being revealed as we cruised through the Dubai Marina. Well done to all of our winners and runners-up, as well as everyone who entered.
Vapouround CEO Paul Caplin summed up the event.
He said: “Organising such a high-profile event in a foreign country and on a huge yacht was an enormous undertaking, but we all pulled together to make it work. I am amazingly proud of my entire team for putting this ceremony together and want to thank all of our sponsors, advertisers, supporters and, most importantly, everyone who entered.
“This was an absolutely wonderful night, we had fantastic feedback from so many people and we honoured some really great individuals and companies.
“We can’t wait to do it all again for 2022.”
