January 2018 – With hundreds of exhibitors, thousands of attendees, and tens of thousands of products coming together for a three-day conference event, TPE 2018 gives the Tobacco and Tobacco Plus industry the best opportunity to start the new year off with big returns. Happening Jan 30 to Feb 1, 2018 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, the TPE 2018 two-day tradeshow offers many potentially lucrative benefits to its attendees.
See, Try, and Buy What’s New

TPE 2018 is bigger than ever, with an expanded show floor that sold out of exhibition space twice, and a promise to deliver exposure to new trends, products, and resources. Distributors are ready to share, demonstrate, and sell their wares, offering top-sellers and fresh draws to attract new customers at the retail level. With a one-stop-shop approach, TPE 2018 attendees can browse and compare goods, interact with the products and vendors, and secure inventory to grow their bottom line based on market trends and proven data.

Don’t Miss These Deals

Start the new year off with more profits by taking advantage of show specials from many of our exhibitors! Plus, to help retailers navigate TPE 2018 and maximize their buying dollars, we’ve put together a Deals Booklet with coupons that highlight over $3500 in savings throughout the tradeshow floor. This exclusive booklet will be given to all attendees upon entering the show, and features offers from top brands, like Wind River, Solace Salts, Space Jam, Black Note, and more!

New Growth Through Networking

Engaging with industry friends and colleagues is a top perk of any tradeshow. With thousands of people expected to attend, TPE 2018 brings the fun of Las Vegas to the show with entertaining lounges and activities that encourage networking, product sampling, relationship-building, and idea exchanging. Missing TPE 2018 means forgoing the opportunity for easy access to new business partnerships, potential customers, and first-hand market info from others in the industry.

Education and Information

TPE 2018 is pleased to offer attendees and exhibitors a comprehensive educational track, beginning with
NATO’s Industry Outlook sessions on January 30, followed by industry-icon-led seminars, like the
keynote address by Jonathan Drew, of Drew Estates, scheduled for January 31, and show-floor sessions
with thought-leaders, like Terry Gallagher, President of Smoker Friendly International and Daniel Trope,
Director of Federal Government Affairs- IPCPR, on both January 31 and February 2. Designed to deliver
information and insight on growth opportunities, new strategies, and how to navigate current and
upcoming legislation challenges, the TPE 2018 educational track will help all attendees better support
their clients and customers in the year ahead. All educational sessions are free for exhibitors, while
attendees will need to purchase tickets for the keynote addresses.

Registration for TPE 2018 is in progress. Attendees are encouraged to sign up early, allowing them to
skip the lines on the day of the show, and spend more time doing business and having fun.
