Takeaways from the 82nd Annual International Premium Cigar and Pipe Retailers Association Trade Show
Earlier this week, the Troutman Sanders tobacco team attended the 82nd International Premium Cigar and Pipe Retailers Association trade show (“IPCPR”) in Las Vegas, Nevada. We were fortunate that Smokeshop Magazine generously agreed to share their booth with us – thanks again! We enjoyed visiting with all of our clients and friends at the show.
In light of the newly-released draft regulations for cigars, pipe tobacco and other tobacco products, many manufacturers are taking steps and planning for the future. All companies should take the time to consider the potential impact of the proposed FDA regulations on their businesses. We encourage you to contact us with your questions – in addition to collectively having decades of experience in the industry, we have been advising clients specifically regarding FDA tobacco requirements since before the enactment of the Tobacco Control Act in 2009.
We hope it was a productive trade show for all involved. We are looking forward to seeing you all at next year’s show in New Orleans.
