TPE 2019: DAY 2

I suspect that day two of the Tobacco Plus Expo will in fact be the best attended day of the trio. Historically, the show would start on a day like this one and then have just one more day, but as I’ve mentioned the last two days, there are now three days instead of two.


As far as attendance, it’s definitely increased from last year. Increased on the premium cigar side, increased in the number of retailers, increased in the number of media, increased in the number of suppliers; increased total. I suspected that day two would be a major uptick from the half day on Monday, but I’m not sure that was the case. It certainly was busier, particularly in the non-cigar areas, but not in the magnitude I was expecting.
