Welcome to the coverage of the easiest booth to cover at the 2018 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show. Ash-Stay is a company that makes an innovative ashtray that features three slots, a covered design and a dishwasher-safe body. The idea is to make it more challenging for both ash and the odors of ash to leave the ashtray.

The product isn’t new—it’s been around since 2014—but there is a new distribution deal with Cigar Oasis and two new colors.

Ash-Stay Coffee & Gunmetal

The two new colors aren’t the most interesting things to photograph, but they do inspire a bit of closer inspection in person. I for one am looking forwarding to testing a unit I purchased on an upcoming trip where the wind will be a factor.

MSRP: $24.95

Production: Regular Production

Launch Date: 2018
