TPE 2011: Exceeding Expectations
The Tobacco Plus Expo International—opening in Las Vegas on March 2—brings together the broadest array of tobacco, tobacco products & accessories under one roof. Three full days packed with exciting activities and informative events.
Tobacco Plus Expo has the reputation of being the ultimate tobacco trade show experience for the tobacco industry. Bigger and better than ever, TPE 2011 promises to live up to that reputation.
The show features a fabulous array of more than 150 exhibitors and conference sessions that focus on building business. This year’s not-to-be-missed trade event features hundreds of show specials and networking opportunities. With nearly 90 percent of exhibitors offering exclusive show deals, the savings attendees realize will offset most travel costs.
TPE 2011 marks the debut of the TPE Masters Charity Golf Tournament which will be held on March 1. Each registrant will enjoy a light breakfast when they arrive, practice play and 18 holes of golf at the Silverstone Golf Club. The day will be capped off with an Awards Cocktail Reception and Charity Auction; proceeds to benefit the Cigar Rights of America, an organization playing an increasingly vital role in fighting for cigar smokers’ rights.
This year’s lineup of Conference Sessions will address these topics:
•Turning Your Tobacco Business into a Profitable Brand
•Cigars – A Perspective Seldom Seen
•Hire the Best Employees
•Special Events for New Business and Building Customer Loyalty.
Internationally known cigar blender Jose Blanco of LaAurora will present a class each day about how various blends and fillers create a premium cigar recipe. His class is limited to ticket holders only.
More than 40 new exhibitors will be showcasing their products. TPE 2011 also welcomes exhibitors from across the world from these countries: China, The Netherlands, Spain, Egypt, Taiwan, Sweden, Jordan, and Canada. These and others will be highlighted in the Show Directory with their nation’s flag appearing next to their listing.
Tobacco Plus Expo International is the only tobacco trade show that doesn’t impose any qualifiers or restrictions on exhibitors or attendees. Participants just need to be in the tobacco business and over age 21 to attend or exhibit.
The Premium Cigar Bar & Lounge; a comfortable area where attendees can gather to enjoy a complimentary beverage and enjoy a fine cigar will again be a feature of the show. Also, back by popular demand is the Spin & Win Wheel which offers buyers the opportunity to try their luck at winning great prizes.
With all this and much more to offer, TPE 2011 is a not-to-be-missed opportunity for anyone in the tobacco industry. To register online go to www.smartreg.com/webreg/tpe11/ or call toll free 888-737-3976.
