In addition to being an early buying and selling opportunity, TPE offers great networking opportunities that have big payoffs long after the show. Many have used TPE as a chance to set up meetings with industry partners or to start discussions about long-term collaborations and business deals. It’s not uncommon to attend TPE in search of a company to help take care of your business’ distribution needs or something as simple as a new point-of-sale system and to leave with several viable options.
Additional information on TPE23 will be released in the coming weeks. In the meantime, here are four things you should know about next year’s show, including why you’ll want to register sooner rather than later.
- Moving to February. TPE is typically held during the last week in January, but next year it will be moving to February. Make sure you have the new dates in mind as you make your plans to attend. TPE23 will take place at the Las Vegas Convention Center from Feb. 22-24, 2023.
- New name but returning favorites. The show’s name may be slightly different, but you’ll still find exhibitors offering the latest premium cigar, tobacco, vapor and alternative products that your customers will love.
- More product selection. TPE23 will be bigger in size and focus with the addition of more product categories and companies exhibiting to fulfill your store’s needs. The show’s new general merchandise exhibitors will help independent retailers stock more in one spot.
- Discounted registration. Registration for attendees opens in October 2022. Register for your badge early to get an early bird discount.
