The International Premium Cigar and Pipe Retailers Association is having its 83rd annual convention and international trade show in New Orleans on July 17 through July 21, 2015. This is the most important cigar event of the year for the cigar industry, and is not open to the general public. Now is the time of year when cigar and accessory manufacturers introduce their new products to retailers and the media. The information shared at this event is then passed along to cigar consumers and enthusiasts, in some cases instantaneously.
Cigar social media, blogs and websites have already shared some of the advance information provided by various manufacturers. Even we have posted a few press releases about new products at Facebook.com/SmokeYourAshOff. But if you’d like to see for yourself what’s going on in New Orleans as it is happening, then we recommend watching Cigar Dave’s live telecasts from the IPCPR trade show on Sunday, July 19 and Monday, July 20.
