Over the last three months, we’ve contacted, according to our records, exactly 200 cigar companies about what they have planned for the 2018 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, which begins its trade show tomorrow.

There will be many new products and a few new faces, but there are some that will not be exhibiting at this year’s trade show. Some of these companies appeared on our version of this list last year, but some are new and a few are quite notable.

The following are a list of companies who are confirmed as not exhibiting at the trade show.

There are probably a dozen or so other companies who we suspect will not be exhibiting at the trade show, but have not received confirmation from those brands about their attendance.
