The National Association of Tobacco Outlets (NATO) will house its headquarters at TPE. NATO Executive Director Thomas Briant will present two seminars that will provide updates on tobacco regulation and arm retailers with tools for fighting legislation on their home turf.
“Now that NATO recently elected to focus its efforts primarily on fighting local anti-tobacco initiatives, the TPE show is an excellent foundation to communicate our message to the thousands of retailers that come to the show,” stated Briant. “Together, we can prepare them with the tools and techniques necessary to succeed and thrive in this new tobacco era.”
TPE 2017 is purposefully planned for January to give retailers a fresh start to the new year. Kretek, which owns TMG, said TPE attendees can expect to build new relationships with industry friends, colleagues and suppliers. They will find the best products on the market for growing their businesses. And they’ll get expert insight on current legislation and how to navigate the laws with growth-oriented action plans.
“TPE 2017 is a place where tobacco businesses can truly do business. It’s the first, best show of the year, created so the industry can plan for the year ahead,” said Kretek President and CEO Mark Cassar.
