Tobacco Media Group (TMG) has decided to change the format of the Tobacco Plus Expo (TPE) 2021. The organization is will now be offering a series of virtual educational sessions leading up to the in-person TPE 2021 trade show, scheduled for May 12-14, 2021.
TMG had previously announced plans to move the TPE 2021 from January to May, in order to safely navigate the uncertainty of the Covid-19 pandemic. “The shift in dates allows more time for precautions to be taken and peace-of-mind to develop, making it a solid approach to ensure TPE’s valuable in-person buying, selling, and networking experience, according to a press release.
Led by industry experts, the educational sessions at TPE show offer insight and information about market trends, best practices, and the legislative landscape. For the 2021 show, TMG is placing an emphasis on engagement with the industry advocacy associations.
“TPE 2021 has presented some planning challenges, to say the least,” says Ben Stimpson, managing director of TMG. “But our team is hard at work, looking for ways we can increase the show’s value for both attendees and exhibitors. By moving the educational sessions to Q1, we’re still able to help the industry start the year strong, armed with information to grow their businesses.”
TPE 2021 will be held May 12-14, 2021 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. More details are expected to be released concerning the early virtual educational sessions, according to the release. For more information, please visit the TPE 2021 website.
