The Tobacco Media Group (TMG) announced that the Tobacco Plus Expo 2020 (TPE 2020) will be taking place from Wednesday through Friday, Jan. 29-31, 2020, in Las Vegas. A growing must-attend event within the industry, TPE is the first big business-to-business buying show of the year, bringing together top brands and buyers from the premium tobacco, vapor and alternative industries.
Organizers say the show celebrates the business while offering opportunities to maximize profits and enjoy time with friends and colleagues.
The Tobacco Plus Expo has been steadily growing over the last few years, providing increasing value and education to all facets of the industry. It is strategically timed for buyers replenishing inventory from the holidays and stocking up for the spring smoking season. And it lines up perfectly for exhibitors looking to put up standout Q1 numbers.
TPE 2018 was recognized by Trade Show Executive with more than one nomination in their Fastest 50 Awards, which honors top-growing shows across the United States. Nods were earned in the “By Net Square Feet of Exhibit Space,” “By Exhibiting Companies” and “By Total Attendance” categories. TPE 2019 saw an attendance increase of almost 50% and an expanded show floor of almost 30%, putting it in strong contention for recognition at next year’s Fastest 50 Awards.
“We set the bar high with last year’s show,” said Ben Stimpson, managing director of Tobacco Media Group, the parent company of TPE. “And the industry is really taking notice. The events, education, exhibitors and attendees were all top-notch. We heard excellent feedback and are looking to raise the bar even higher with TPE 2020.”
Stimpson said that TPE is working with vendors to keep exhibitor costs low in hopes to attract more exhibitors and more products, which in turn, will draw more buyers to the show.
“We hope you’ll join us for this promising start to 2020,” said Stimpson.
The TPE 2020 Exhibitor floor is already nearly 80% booked. Those interested in exhibiting at or attending the show can find more information at TobaccoPlusExpo.com.
