According to the organizer, the Expo, which is held in Beijing from July 23 to 25, attracts over 120 companies, including global high-end e-cigarette and e-liquid brands. China’s capital city unrolled ambitious new curbs on smoking in early June. Under the new rules, anyone in Beijing who violates the ban, which includes smoking in restaurants, hotels, schools and hospitals as well as in certain outdoor public places, must pay a 200 yuan ($32.25) fine.
