World Tobacco Exhibition – Puerto Vallarta – What next?

Hat’s off to World Tobacco for their Show and good organization held in Puerto Vallarta Mexico April 16/17.

The Hotel and arrangements were well chosen and it was noted this was the first exhibition in Latin America – an important tobacco region -mostly ignored by show organizers.

The show itself was small and more significantly lightly attended. It will be hard to see how exhibitors recouped their costs.

Why is this?

Most obviously is the saturation level of “global” tobacco exhibitions – there are just too many shows and insufficient time in between to have anything new.

So what next?

The Tobacco Reporter show, planned for Sao Paulo Brazil in October will be moved to Rio (same dates) and its format modified.

There will not be a show, and the event will be more networking  and discussion / debate oriented. There are many significant topics for debate. At the same time there will be ample opportunitiy for peer meetings and business.

We applaud Tobacco Reporter’s pro-active approach.

I think that this website should let users add topics that they feel are pertainent rather then the website staff. These topics could use some juice and also allow for some postings that are written in other Blogs that need to be seen.
