UKVIA Overview

As the country’s leading forum for supporting, developing and promoting the £1bn vaping industry, the UK Vaping Industry Association (UKVIA) is spearheading one of the biggest market disruptions in the 21st century – the seismic shift from smoking to vaping.

A non-profit organisation run by its members for its members, we’re about educating, informing and reassuring our key stakeholders as well as championing our industry so that the shift from smoking to vaping continues unabated and the public health benefits of doing so are realised fully. Our primary stakeholders include policy makers, parliamentarians, regulators, the public health community and the some 7m smokers across the UK.

Our Members

The UKVIA comprises some of the UK’s most entrepreneurial and fastest growing independent vaping businesses, tobacco companies who are seizing the opportunity to play their role in the move towards a smokefree society and a range of professional and ancillary service providers.

We represent the largest proportion of the UK marketplace and the entire supply chain including manufacturers, retailers, wholesalers, distributors and compliance service providers  who all share our vision of “a world where the evidence-based life changing public health benefits of vaping products are fully understood and the positive impact is maximised.”
