If you haven’t seen the schedule yet for Oklahoma Vape Jam 2016, you’re about to wish you were going.

Stepping away from the traditional feel for a convention, this one is largely aimed at promoting advocacy. Don’t expect to see cloud comps and juice being thrown from every booth at the event or you will be sorely disappointed.

The night before the event begins, the film “A Billion Lives” will make it’s Oklahoma City premiere at the Harkins Bricktown Cinema at 7 p.m. There will be repeat screenings all weekend at the event, as well.

Hands-on collaborative sessions will take place each day designed to encourage collaboration solutions to problems facing small businesses in the vapor industry.

Cynthia Cabrera, president of the Smoke-Free Alternatives Trade Association (SFATA) will present the keynote address over breakfast on Friday morning.

More than fifteen break-out sessions on topics including advocacy, public policy, product research and business development.

An advocacy panel banquet is also planned that will feature the leaders of all the major advocacy organization leaders.

VAPE Magazine will be a presenting sponsor at the event, so be sure to stop by and see us while you’re there.
