World Tobacco – Asia (and WT Magazine’s subsequent demise)

The World Tobacco Asia – 2009, exhibition and congress was held again in Bali Indonesia at the Westin Nusa Dua – April 22 – 24 2009.

The resort is gorgeous and a great location for the exhibition as the center is within the resort complex. It was well organized and exhibitor participation reasonable – although many said it was small. Another plus is Indonesia’s relaxed smoking policy and regulations: There aren’t any!

Visitor traffic was the usual mixture of suppliers and vendors. Missing were lots of new local faces and contacts as well as any significant showing from the multi-nationals (PMI, JTI and BAT.)

The WT staff did a great job with organization and were rewarded on their UK return with the news the magazine was closing to concentrate on Events only which will be promoted by TJI.

Victim of a declining tobacco market or contracting print media market – or both?

We wish those let go from WT all the best and thank them for their good work and dedication to the Industry.
