TPE 2012: Two Full Days of Buying & Networking

It’s all about business at the Tobacco Plus Expo International in Las Vegas.

The most comprehensive tobacco show in the U.S. will be held at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Nevada, Feb. 1-2, 2012.

The not-to-be-missed event promises to be the year’s best opportunity for retailers, manufacturers, distributors and wholesalers to see new products, share insights, do business and learn about industry news and trends.

The show is set to feature more than 100,000 square feet of exhibits and networking areas that showcase tobacco products and accessories.  Increased numbers of international exhibitors and buyers are expected to participate. With over 90% or more of those exhibitors offering show deals exclusively to TPE attendees, the show is a not-to-be-missed industry event.

For the fourth year running, TPE 2012 will host the Cigar Bar & Lounge; a comfortable retreat where visitors can gather for informal meetings or to simply enjoy a complimentary beer, wine or soft drink. Registrants will also have an opportunity to attend two informative educational seminars on Wednesday morning, Feb. 1.

Seth Mailhot, special counsel in the food and drug law group of Sheppard Mullin Richter & Hampton, will present “A Lot of Smoke but is There Really a Fire? FDA’s Enforcement of Tobacco.” The session will be followed by a Premium Cigar Panel that will share their insights and knowledge of the premium cigar business.  This session will be moderated by Cigar Rights of America’s Glynn Loope.

The opening day of the show will culminate with a Super Bowl-themed Opening Night Reception in Ballroom A at the Las Vegas Hilton Hotel. This tickets-only event will be a huge Tailgate Party featuring a festive Rock & Roll band as well as giveaways, games, drinks and food.  

All of this excitement takes place against the vibrant backdrop of Las Vegas, where you’ll find plenty to enjoy during your downtime—from exploring its world-famous casinos and restaurants to enjoying spectacular shows.

The Las Vegas Hilton is the Headquarters hotel of TPE International.  The Flamingo Hotel also offers a room block at discounted rates to exhibitors and show attendees.  For reservations, contact VIP Meetings at (800) 926-3976 or (310) 459-0060.
