If you were following our recent articles, you all noticed that we kept mentioning the introduction/launch of new Cigar series and/or special editions during the IPCPR trade show this coming July. But what is the IPCPR and what are its objectives?
The “Retail Tobacco Dealers of America” (RTDA) was founded in 1933 and changed its name to the “International Premium Cigars and Pipe Retailers” (IPCPR) in 2007. Its main idea was to represent and assist retailers of premium tobacco & their suppliers.
The IPCPR is considered as the “Sign of the Professional Tobacconist since 1933”. As per their motto on their website: “IPCPR… We’re Serious about Protecting Your Future!”, and as a not-for-profit trade association, it provides its members with:
– Legislative Action,
– Products & Discounts,
– News & Information,
– Marketing information.
This coming July, the 85th IPCPR trade show will take place from July the 10th till July the 14th at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The main idea of this trade show is to make connections, discover hot products, and stay informed.
