Additionally, TPE will house the NATO headquarters on the expo floor, giving show attendees an on-site doorway to take their first steps towards mobilizing and helping to change the laws that will directly affect their businesses.
“Now that NATO recently elected to focus its efforts primarily on fighting local anti-tobacco initiatives, the TPE 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.”
And that will be accomplished right along with the start of the new year, given TPE’s purposeful timing. “The TPE, which is a growing part of Tobacco Media Group (TMG) and the Kretek family of companies is excited for an environment that brings retailers and manufacturers together in an industry of constant scrutiny and competitive pressure,” said Mark Cassar, president and CEO at Kretek. “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 best plan for the year ahead.”
