CHAMPs is recognized as the world's largest and most trusted counter-culture business-to-business trade show and has been around 1999. This was the 33rd CHAMPs show to date and featured some of the biggest glass and smoking product names in the industry.
It is a collection of manufacturers, distributors, wholesalers, buyers, and much more. CHAMPs even features a live glassblowing competition for the 3 days it is held.
This is great exposure for up and coming artists as well as a great time for artists well known in the industry to show off some of their latest skills and innovations (like Katie Teriyaki, pictured below).
We were very excited to meet the CEO of VAPE Holdings (OTCQB: VAPE) Kyle Tracey as he was there to represent one of their many companies: HIVE Ceramics. HIVE is the leading ceramic concentrate accessory company in the industry and are constantly innovating and releasing new products. AllGlass is excited to be carrying all of HIVE's products!
Legendary glass company Jerome Baker Designs (JBD) was present at CHAMPs featuring their flagship Robot line. These pieces are wonderful for function and display alike and come in a detailed limited edition box.
Renowned borosilicate glass artist AKM was in attendance showing his collection of beautiful new works of non-functional soft glass art skulls.
We were especially honored to have our very own AtariVideo (Instagram: @atarivideo_420) help JMFlow Glass and Illadelph Glass introduce the first limited JMFlow x Illadelph Sprinkler Perc Coil collaboration to the world. Stay tuned for our exclusive feature article on the collaboration!
All in all, it was a great time to meet new companies and glassblowers alike and check out all of the innovations in the industry.
We are excited for the next CHAMPs show that will be held in Las Vegas in the fall, stay tuned!
