IPCPR 2016: Davidoff of Geneva USA

Null

Like many larger booths, Davidoff of Geneva USA’s physical footprint seemed to grow slightly this year, even though the look of the booth is much the same. The one exception is the addition of S.T.Dupont, which is now distributed by Davidoff of Geneva USA.

The trade show is the formal unveiling for the new Davidoff Yamasá, but the company brought other new products for Davidoff, as well AVO, Camacho, Ditka and Room101.

AVO & Camacho POS Displays

AVO & Camacho POS Displays

The largest (physical) item in the booth and a fairly important one at that. These were offered to retailers for free so long as they bought a minimum amount of product. Davidoff of Geneva USA will begin rolling them out in late 2016 to the initial retailers and will expand the program next year.

Of note, you do not have to be a Davidoff appointed merchant to receive the AVO or Camacho display.
