If I tried to think of a booth with a better location than 7-20-4 year after year, I would be hard-pressed to think of one. Without going back and checking all the previous year’s floor maps, I seem to remember it always being on the first big aisle at the end. Combined with the nice, open booth design that owner Kurt Kendall has used again this year, it’s easy to see the signage from almost any angle as you approach.
Booth placement is quite important, as several exhibitors expressed disappointment over their placement this year and the lack of traffic they received.
Kendall noted there were no new cigars at the show, as they are focusing on the upcoming 150th anniversary of the company. What they did have, however, was some new pipe tobacco specifically blended for Kendall’s cigar store, Twins Smoke Shop in Londonderry, New Hampshire.
