Cigar News: Tobacco Plus Expo 2020 Update

Tobacco Plus Expo 2020 (TPE 2020), the first major B2B tradeshow of the year for the tobacco and alternative industries is nearly here! Happening Wednesday, January 29, 2020 through Friday, January 31, 2020 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, TPE 2020 is a must-attend event for all facets of the industry. Already exceeding numbers for attendance and exhibitors in comparison to the already record-breaking figures from 2019, TPE 2020 is drawing a crowd that’s ready to get down to business, while having a good time, too. With the show just about a month away, the Tobacco Media Group (TMG) is pleased to share new details to maximize time and better support everyone on the show floor.

TPE 2020 is implementing the TPE Connect program. Through this online platform, attendees and exhibitors are matched together based on product, and can schedule meetings during show hours directly through the Connect program. This maximizes time, optimizes schedules, and ensures that business gets done with time to spare for more browsing, networking, learning, and fun. To participate in TPE Connect, be sure to log in to your attendee or exhibitor portal prior to the show and update your product preferences so you can be matched with the right people to meet with.

TPE 2020 is expecting a notable media presence to amplify industry trend and activity at the show. While TPE 2020 is B2B-focused, these key players offer visibility to consumers, and drive traffic from their platforms to retail stores and products throughout the year. To boost their efforts, our TPE 2020 Media Program offers perks to attendees from the media, including an at-show workspace with wi-fi and light snacks and early access to the trade show floor, allowing meeting time with manufacturers for info and photos before the show floor gets busy. To take advantage of these opportunities, media personnel and outlets will need to register under attendees as media at

The TPE website is also better than ever, with new features that share show deals, attendee demographics, exhibitor lists, sponsorship opportunities, conference sessions, travel information, and more. It’s a one-stop site for information (and registration!), just like TPE 2020 is a one-stop show, bringing together thousands of products and thousands of buyers under one roof. With convenience, profit-maximizing show specials, and solid entertainment, TPE is the best place to refresh and replenish inventory after the holidays and to stock up for the spring smoking season.

Dawn Conger, Sales Manager for TPE notes:

“We could not be more pleased with how our plans and programs are falling into place. We’ve done the research, identified areas of expansion and further development, and have gone to great lengths to add features that will truly benefit everyone at the show- especially the premium tobacco market.

The depth and quality of our exhibitors and attendees is exciting, and our educational and entertainment opportunities, too. We’re proud to be part of our industry’s strong start to 2020.”
