Tobacco Media Group (TMG), parent company of the Tobacco Plus Expo (TPE), is excited to confirm that TPE21 will be held in-person May 12-14, 2021 at the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC). On Feb. 11, 2021, Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak unveiled his state’s re-opening plan, which went into effect on Feb. 15, 2021. Gov. Sisolak’s reopening plan loosened restrictions on public gatherings and events and venue capacity limits. It also outlines a plan to remove state mandated restrictions and turn control over to county officials by May 1, 2021 if the state’s infection and positivity rates continue to improve. Currently, all indications point toward TMG being able to hold TPE21 as planned in Las Vegas, beginning on May 12, 2021.
“There is excitement amongst TPE21’s exhibitors and attendees for May to be here so that the industry can come together for a reunion of sorts in Las Vegas,” says Ben Stimpson, managing director of TMG. “This is evidenced by a nearly sold-out show floor and a great start to attendee registration, which opened on Feb. 17, 2021. We believe the TPE21 tradeshow is the ideal setting to bring the tobacco, vapor and alternative industry back together after so many months apart and we’re all eager to get back to business.”
The LVCC was the first facility in Nevada to be awarded the Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) STAR facility accreditation, considered the gold standard for safe facilities and resort partners continue to implement stringent #VegasSmart health and wellness protocols throughout the destination to keep visitors safe.
