Default Hookah Convention?

I know that there is a convention out there everything (star wars, tattoos, bikes etc.) but I have searched the net high & low and have not found any hookah conventions. Does anybody know if such a thing exsists? If so, where & when? If it doesn't , maybe it wouldn't be a bad idea for some of the vendors to join forces and come up with something?

I know that there is one for vendors somewhere in California, actually i think it might be Vegas... But all the main vendors go, as do the reps for the shisha companies (SB, AF, Fantasia,,etc.)

I think if it doesn't already exsist, then organizing one should be heavily taken into consideration. I mean, at other types of conventions, you can usually get great deals on stuff, preview some stuff that isn't available globally yet, great networking opportunities, and like how mylkshake said, conventions are just fun.

conventions require a lot of organization and money. not sure how the costs would be determined, guessing from the price of the venue, however i dont think many people would be willing to converge on one area (travel expenses) and then pay for entry considering a lot of people can hardly afford to buy tobacco hehe

if there is a meet near so-cal though i'd be down to go

I have never heard of a convention for retailers/vendors,etc. If you want to meet other hookah smokers in your area, I suggest that you check out www.meetup.com If anyone ever wants to hold a convention in the Baltimore/Washington DC area, just let me know.

Hookah-Con! Sounds great! Vendors, smokers, and name badges on lanyards!!

I'd be down for it (if it was near my area).

hmmm, random hookahs placed around a convention center, you get handed some mouth pieces when you walk it (not a fan of them but when theres that many people i aint trusting anyone) just randomly walk around for a while sample flavor after flavor, then enter in to a huge expo in side.

hmmmm it would be awesome, but probably cost to much to pull off and pull a big enough crowd, totally would go though

better at the entrance you get a free healthy hose so you can use to any hookah in the convention..

That would be cool. We always have gun shows here in So Cal but the gun laws are so anal here its not really worth buying them anymore. I think they should be replaced by hookah shows... no not Broadway lol.

Those buildings would be really smoking but they will smell amazing though.

Anything that ends in con (other than ex con LOL) usually means freaky women. Sounds good to me! LOL

The bad thing about a convention is that we all live so far apart. It would be a real journey for some to make.

Me and boomhauer were messing around with the idea like a month after I joined the community. Have it somewhere in Nevada like Las Vegas, have some vendors come down and have all of their wares for sale etc etc. It plays out really awesome in my head.

Vegas would be great! I'd drive there!

Samples, sales, discussions, product demos, new product previews, etc. And cool lanyards that look like hoses. And name badges shaped like hookahs!

August in vegas? Bahahah no way homie. Vegas is extremely hot like Phoenix, Arizona during that time. I go to Vegas at least once a year. It used to be like 4 times for my grandparents. If I vacation in the summer I don't want to go to a place that is the same 115 degree temperature there as it is where I live ahahah. Catch my drift?

Hmm a hookah convetion would be a great thing!

I'm a big cigar smoker and in that community we have things called "herfs". Basically a herf is a group of people getting together for the sole purpose of smoking cigars. A lot of those popular herfs have now turned into huge regional cigar events that happen once a year or every few months.

Maybe instead of a convention (which would require a lot of cash and a TON of participation) we could start doing some Hookah smoking parties around the country. Is there anythign like that yet?
