Two very special guests at VapitalyPRO, the trade fair dedicated
to business and training for vaping operators (9 and 10 November - New
Fiera di Roma Exhibition Center, Via Portuense 1645), will be the
international experts from the world of vaping: Phil Busardo and Dimitris
On Sunday 10 November, at 2:30 p.m., Phil and Dimitris will be on
stage at VapitalyPRO to talk about the present and future of the vaping sector
in the USA, and the possible impact of US policies on international markets.
Phil Busardo, a consultant,
designer, reviewer and activist, is undoubtedly one of the best-known faces of vaping
internationally: his social media presence, for example, has chalked up over 24
million views in recent years.
Since 2011 (when the first
review appeared on his YouTube channel @pbusardo), Busardo has earned a sound
reputation for his authoritative comments and reviews in the vaping sphere (hardware
and liquids/flavours), as well as on the pertinent scenarios and legislation. This
visibility has recently led him to work with the top hardware manufacturers to
develop products “from vapers for vapers”, and he has also decided, along with
other colleagues, to take action to combat the increasingly frequent
disinformation regarding recent events in the USA that have prompted episodes
of fake news, even in Europe.
He is supported in these
battles by Dimitris Agrafiotis, better known as Vapingreek. A long-established
vaper, he works (accompanied by Busardo) with the top vaping product
manufacturers. He is known internationally for his staunch support for the
responsible regulation of e-cigarettes, as a means towards tobacco harm
reduction. Dimitris Agrafiotis is also executive director of the Tennessee
Smoke Free Association, presenter of Smoke Free Radio and
owner of the website: www.internationalvaporsolutions.com, where he seeks to educate and inform the public regarding all kinds of
vaping scenarios: from general information on products to scientific comments,
as well as articles on legal and regulatory issues.
The encounter with Phil Busardo
and Vapingreek will be followed by a workshop run by Utopia Legal, dedicated
to legal aspects for operators in the vaping sector.
