Editor’s Note: This past week saw Inter-tabac, the European trade show. I would rank it as the third most important show of the calendar year for the American market behind IPCPR and the TAA Convention. As far as entertainment and enjoyment, it’s number one. A full post will come once I get back to the states, for now, the weekly news.
