Summer 2018

We will be in Las Vegas in July for The 86th. IPCPR trade show. This is the industries largest show to date . There we get a sneak preview of all the new Cigars, Pipes and related products from manufacturers from around the world. This is the show where manufactures showcase their latest wares. Thousands of retailers will be on hand to see and sample new products. Many attend seminars designed to help build business and keep shop owners informed about the new FDA requirements. While there is plenty of work for attendee’s during the 4 day trade show , many of us look forward to just seeing old friends and business associates. There will be lots of parties and dinners sponsored by manufactures to attend if time allows. Plus Las Vegas has plenty of diversions to keep everyone entertained . We look forward to bringing back the best the industry has to offer for all our customers.
