The Tobacco Plus Expo will grow next year.

For TPE 2019, there will be three trade floor days instead of two, which has been previously been the norm. The show is also a few weeks later than it has been in prior years, taking place Feb. 11-13 (Monday-Friday). It will once again be held at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Tobacco Plus Expo is the second largest cigar trade show in the U.S. The trade show is owned and operated by Kretek International—which owns Phillips & King, Ventura Cigar Co. and others—and includes all tobacco categories, as well as e-cigarette, vape and cannabis segments.

Companies attending TPE 2019 include Davidoff of Geneva USA, Drew Estate, J.C. Newman Cigar Co., Nat Sherman, Oliva, Phillips & King, Rocky Patel Premium Cigars, Royal Agio Cigars USA, Santa Clara, Inc. and others.
