TPE to feature an expanded show floor.
TPE 2019 is set to kick off in Las Vegas this February.
The show draws tobacco manufacturers, distributors and retailers ready to turn their sights toward optimizing profits in the new year.
Held from Monday, Feb. 11 through Wednesday, Feb. 13 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, TPE 2019 brings together people from all facets of the tobacco, vapor and alternative industries to offer a one-stop show for exhibiting, browsing, buying, networking, learning and having a solidly good time.
And while the show is celebrating its 15th year, we’re adding some exciting new elements that will help put both exhibitors and attendees on the path to profits in the year ahead.
Expanded Show Floor, Days, and Hours
With over 30% more square footage than last year, the TPE show floor is bigger than ever. And it’s now a three-day event, with show hours from 1 – 5 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 11, 10:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 12, and 10:30 a.m. – 4 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 13. This gives Exhibitors the opportunity to bring in and sell more products, while Attendees get to browse and buy from an increased number of Exhibitors. And an expanded open show floor means there’s even more time available for doing business. That’s great for everyone.
How to Reach More Buyers
We’ve significantly exceeded the number of registered attendees to date as compared to last year’s numbers at this time. Exhibitors will particularly enjoy the increased attendance, while Attendees can use TPE 2019 to stay on the forefront of lucrative trends like CBD products, learning from their peers, seeing what they’re bringing into their stores, and exchanging best practices.
A Product Showcase
To help products stand out for both Exhibitors and Attendees, TPE 2019 is creating a Product Showcase located near the show’s registration area. Attendees can explore the section, scanning products they’re interested in to receive information on where to find the products. And Exhibitors will receive the list of hot leads who show interest in their products for follow-up after the show.
The TPE Mobile App
To make things as smooth as possible, TPE 2019 is offering a mobile app, which will have a wealth of information about the show, including hot product spotlights. For pre-show preparation, the mobile app can be downloaded now- just search “Tobacco Plus Expo” in Google Play or the Apple App store.
The Parties Are Here
What’s a tradeshow without the chance to have some fun? During TPE, come hang out at the inaugural West Coast Barn Smoker from Drew Estate, being held in the cigar lounge during all three days of the show.
And there’s after-hours fun, too:
- The Glass.Vegas Party on Monday, Feb. 11 from 8-11 p.m. at the adjacent Westgate Hotel. Enjoy VIP access, live bands, food and drinks.
- The All-Industry Party on Tuesday, Feb. 12 at 5 p.m. on the show floor. Mix it up with industry friends and colleagues and enjoy tasty food, live music, and the two drink tickets on your badge.
“We’re dedicated to putting on a tradeshow that adds value to the bottom line for our Exhibitors and Attendees,” said Ben Stimpson, managing director of TMG, the parent company of TPE. “TPE has a long history, and we’ve designed this year’s show to make browsing, buying, and exhibiting easier and better than ever before. And we’re taking steps to make sure that it’s a lot of fun, too. We look forward to seeing you there!”
