The inaugural China International Cigar Culture Festival will take place June 8-10 in Wuzhen, a town on the south of the Yangtze River known for its scenic canals.
It’s being sponsored by Cigar Specialist magazine, a state-licensed publication. There are three different ticket levels ranging from 588-9,688 RMB ($92-$1,518).
The lowest-priced ticket gets you access to the opening ceremony as well as a visit to a tobacco field, the venues, a master class and other “live” activities. For 2,988 RMB ($470), attendees will get the base level package as well as two nights at a Wuzhen hotel and the festival gift package.
At the high end, the 9,688RMB ticket will get three nights at an upgraded hotel, a commemorative box of 10 cigars, a gold-covered tobacco leaf, a VIP visit to a production facility, a special master class on cigar making and a VIP cocktail party.
The Dominican Republic’s Procigar and Cuba Infifon—the Hong Kong distributor for Habanos S.A.—are also listed as sponsors. A press release indicates that in addition to cigars from China, Cuba and the Dominican Republic, there will also be cigar brands from Italy, Nicaragua and Switzerland.
