The National Association of Tobacco Outlets Inc. (NATO) has announced that all of the leading cigarette manufacturers in the country are committed to participate in NATO’s 10th Anniversary and Trade Show.
Altria Sales and Distribution, R. J. Reynolds Tobacco, Lorillard Tobacco and Commonwealth Brands are all confirmed exhibitors at the show to be held April 12 – 14, 2011 at the Rio in Las Vegas.
“The show floor for the NATO Show is over 70% sold out,” said Andy Kerstein, president of NATO. “The fact that we have secured this level of support in just a little over three months is a powerful message that this is the tobacco event of the year to attend.”
“The list of exhibitors includes companies of all sizes representing the full range of tobacco products,” commented Dave Riser, vice president of external relations trade marketing for R.J. Reynolds. “With the exhibitors that are committed, and the education sessions being offered-to include Dr. Deyton of the Center for Tobacco Products-if you are in the tobacco business you can’t afford to miss this.”
