The Vapor Technology Association held day one of its two-day conference, “Vape & the FDA 2,” at Trump International Hotel – Washington, D.C. An invitation for the event listed FDA Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb and White House Director of the Domestic Policy Council Andrew Bremberg as “invited” speakers. Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI), Chairman of the Senate Department of Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, spoke at the event, and so did many industry lobbyists. The trade group “secured a block of rooms at the Trump International Hotel” for the event. On day two of the conference, attendees lobbied on Capitol Hill.
