DARIEN, Conn. — E-Alternative Solutions (EAS), an independent, family-owned provider of electronic alternatives to cigarettes and sister company to Swisher International, will showcase its portfolio of satisfying, award-winning vapor products and industry-leading retail solutions at the 2019 Tobacco Plus Expo (TPE) in Las Vegas, Nevada from February 11-13 at Booth #7028.
This year, EAS is recognized by Convenience Store News (CSN) as the 2019 Category Captain in Electronic Vapor Products, awarded for excellence in innovative, creative and profit-generating category management platforms.
“As evolving consumer demand and regulatory reform shape the vapor market, EAS brings best-in-class expertise in sales, marketing and compliance, along with a suite of satisfying vapor products to help retailers navigate these changes,” said Jacopo D’Alessandris, CEO and President, EAS. “EAS is a family-owned company that prides itself on being a smart, informed and ethical partner. We understand and embrace our responsibility to position ourselves – and the entire category – for sustained, ethical growth, and to ensure adult smokers continue to have alternatives they can trust.”
This year EAS introduces Leap®, an innovative nicotine-salts vapor franchise that takes adult users beyond smoking. Leap features flavors that are distinctly developed for mature palates, and offers a sophisticated design, more powerful battery and higher capacity e-liquid pods than the leading competitor.
Leap is available in rechargeable and disposable models. Each offers a wide range of e-liquid flavors and three nicotine levels – including zero-nicotine options – so adult consumers can experience unique, customizable satisfaction.
EAS is also the exclusive distributor of the Cue® Vapor System (Cue), a patented breakthrough in vaping innovation that in 2017 was recognized by CSN as a Best New Product in the Electronic Cigarette & Vapor Products category. The simple yet powerful sub-ohm closed system enables consumers to sidestep the complicated, and sometimes messy process of typical vaping devices. Users simply click the pre-assembled, disposable cartridges into the Cue device and vape.
“Our product portfolio covers all major consumer needs when it comes to vapor product alternatives: sub-ohm closed systems via Cue Vapor, and nicotine salts rechargeable and disposable products with Leap and Leap Go,” said Jeffrey Brown, Vice President, Sales at EAS. “Our motto is ‘retailers first,’ supporting and working in close partnership with traditional tobacco retailers. We bring decades of collective experience – and an intimate understanding of tobacco industry shortfalls – to design programs that can be customized to business models and consumer bases.”
EAS General Counsel & Chief Compliance Officer, Chris Howard, will speak at TPE as part of an educational panel discussion, “How Innovation is Changing the Vape Category,” sponsored by Tobacco Business, on February 12 at 1:00 p.m. PST. EAS has undertaken a leadership role in the creation of sensible industry standards and regulations, helping to formulate the Vapor Technology Association (VTA) marketing standards as a member of the VTA Board of Directors, and advancing the interests of the industry’s manufacturers, wholesalers, small business owners, and entrepreneurs.
