Why We Exhibit…
Exhibitors want to sell their products and gain longterm, high-volume customers. That’s why they travel from around the globe to be part of TPE, the largest tobacco, vapor, and alternative trade show. It is the first show of the year to reach attendees who are actively seeking to buy the newest, most innovative products. Exhibitors also benefit from TPE’s exclusive opportunities to provide attendees with show deals, a product spotlight area to market new products, educational conferences with speakership opportunities and, of course, world-class parties and events.
TPE HAS BEEN a fantastic experience for us. I’ve seen a lot of the country’s top [premium cigar] retailers throughout the show and we’ve written a lot of orders from both existing and new accounts. It’s been an amazing experience.
IT’S CRAZY TO see the level of growth at TPE. The show floor is a way more personal venue for attendees. The date of the show is fantastic for retailers and the content is really the best in class.
THE WEST COAST Barn Smoker at TPE has given us an opportunity to show our customers what we do on the premium cigar side. This show is also providing us a chance to have more interaction, giving us an opportunity for a more personal touch.
TPE IS A great moment to connect with customers around the country in one place. It allows us to add another vehicle to promote our current and new products. It is also valuable to learn from our competitors from other industries.
TPE KEEPS GETTING stronger and more successful every year. It’s any excellent show to help us extend our reach to retailers that we typically don’t have access to in the DTO and liquor store categories. We have built many new distributor relationships.
THIS IS OUR first year at TPE, but I can tell you that it won’t be our last. It’s been a great experience for us, and we’ve been nonstop busy—I think I’ve only had about five minutes of downtime each day of the show so far.
TPE WAS AN amazing experience. The floor [has] such diversity that it is impossible not to strike up a conversation that can lead to a solid business relationship. With marketing and social media, TPE helped gauge what individualized clients were in need of.
TPE IS ONE of the best [shows] we do every year, we exhibit at 14 to 16 shows and this one stands out from the rest. The buyers that come are real serious about their purchases, it’s a quality show.
In the tobacco, vapor, and alternative industries, keeping yourself and your business up-to-date on important legal and marketing topics is crucial … and can be difficult. It’s easy with TPE! All educational sessions are held in private meeting rooms adjacent to the show floor, with easy drop-in sessions include NATO seminars, in-depth sessions with professionals from every category of the industry, and our not-to-be-missed Industry Party and reception.
