After becoming the first person to receive a makeover on video last year, Enrique Seijas really stepped up his appearance. It was a suit and tie day at the Quesada booth, which was never packed in the 45 minutes I was there, but always seemed busy with multiple customers coming in and out.

Matilde was inside the booth of its U.S. distributor, Quesada. It’s a very Dominican affair, with Quesada and Matilde on one side and Procigar’s booth right on the other side of a wall.

As for new product, there’s nothing, though the company is focusing on Serena, which was not at the trade show last year.

Davidoff is the official sponsor of halfwheel's coverage of the 2017 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show.
