This symposium is the best opportunity for E-Liquid companies to stay in business"

WHY YOU SHOULD
VIEW THE REPLAYS
Special interest groups and big government are determined to squash out our industry forever. We no longer have the luxury of a "wait and see" approach. BIG changes happen every day, and those that fail to adapt will fail to survive. 

If you are an e-liquid manufacturer, distributor, flavor house, vape shop or hardware company that intends to stay in business, you need to know what we covered in this live workshop.

The expert speakers at the Keller & Heckman E-Vapor Symposium are collectively worth over $20,000. 

We've packed every presentation into a professional video series so you can learn directly from them, without paying for 1-on-1 counsel. 
E-Liquid Companies That Are Committed To
SURVIVE AND THRIVE IN 2017
MUST DOWNLOAD THESE PRESENTATIONS NOW
Hope is NOT a business plan....

The regulations WILL IMPACT your e-liquid company. You'll need to ADAPT ASAP if you intend to stay in business in 2017 and beyond. 

The FDA is DETERMINED to regulate the vape industry in 2017. Those that don't adapt will lose. It's survival of the fittest.

Juice companies have the MOST TO LOSE with the upcoming regulations, followed by hardware companies, then distributors, then vape shops

If your juice company is generating more than $5 MILLION annual revenue, you have a lot of work to do in 2017. If you earn LESS THAN $5 MILLION you still have the same amount of work to do, but have more time to do it. 

The effects will be felt all the way down the supply chain - NO ONE IS IMMUNE. Those that don't adapt will fail, and no one is going to do it for you. You MUST educate yourself.

The future of your business depends on it...

Frequently Asked Questions
Still sitting on the fence? Here are answers to some of the most commonly asked questions...
How Long Will It Take To Get Access To The Symposium Replays?

All of our training videos are housed on this website and ready for your immediate viewing.  

Once you submit payment you will be prompted to setup a username and password on this site. Afterwards you can login and view the videos 24/7 from a desktop or mobile device.  

The accompanying presentations slides will be available for download from the same course homepage.

Save them to your computer or print them out for easy access.
You can get started on your FDA research right away. 
Is There a Guarantee?
Yes!
 
You'll have a 30-day, no-questions-asked guarantee.

In other words, if you aren't happy for any reason, just send an email to norm@vapementors.com and we'll give your money back.

We hope it doesn't come to that, but if you're even a little bit worried that these replays aren't right for you, then put your mind at ease.

You either get the information you want or get your money back. It's as simply as that!
Why Just $1495?
If you added up all the hours the Keller & Heckman lawyers put into this event you'd be paying well over $10,000. So why is this such a great deal?

1. Live attendees paid almost $2,000. 
Being able to rub shoulders with the industry experts demanded a premium price. These replays are discounted so everyone can have a chance to see what we learned without having to physically be there.

2. We want your company to survive. The FDA seems determined to crack down on the "dangers" of vaping with onerous regulations and industry-crushing rules. That means that many smaller companies won't survive without serious legal guidance. This price point gives you access to the top lawyers in the industry without paying for every hour of general counsel.
 
3. We are supporting lawsuits to fight for vaping with the proceeds. Azim Chowdhury and Keller & Heckman have been fighting for your right to own a vape business for years. But, if you add up all the hours, days, weeks and months they have put into this fight you'd discover that they are putting in far more work than what they are entitled to receive in compensation. That's because they love this industry and want to see it succeed. By paying for these replays you are helping Azim and his partners continue the fight. 

What is VapeMentors Exactly?
