The 2018 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show will be hosted a the Las Vegas Convention Center.
It will be the second year in a row where the trade show is moved from the Sands Expo at the Venetian and Palazzo to the larger Las Vegas Convention Center, a change that is also happening with this year’s trade show.
In 2015, the International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailers Association announced that it had a three-year deal with the Sands Expo to host the show from 2016-2018. As it turns out, 2016 will end up being the only year Sands hosted the show.
Mark Pursell, ceo of IPCPR, told halfwheel the organization is still working on finalizing a date for 2018.
The organization has also begun to survey members about what city they would like the trade show to be hosted in with options including Las Vegas, New Orleans and Orlando.
