Next year’s Total Product Expo (TPE) will take place in late January and early February, a return to TPE’s normal dates after a deviation this year.

TPE 2024 will take place Jan. 31-Feb. 2, 2024 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. This is notable because TPE 2023 is currently taking place this week at the same time as Procigar, the Dominican Republic’s annual cigar festival. TPE is a multi-faceted trade show that includes premium cigars as well as other tobacco products and a large swath of alternative products ranging from vape products to cannabis-lite offerings. It is owned by Kretek, the parent company of Phillips & King, a large tobacco distributor that also sells products in these alternative categories.

In recent years, TPE has been growing thanks to increased exhibitors in both the premium cigar and alternative categories. That growth has also led to more and more cigar retailers attending, transforming TPE in a five-year span from a trade show that in 2018 had roughly a dozen cigar companies exhibiting to one where there is likely to be at least 75 new cigars or cigar accessories launched at TPE this year.

The reason for this year’s scheduled deviation was due to a scheduling conflict at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
