The International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailers Association (IPCPR) has signed a multi-year contract to hold its Annual Convention & International Trade Show at the Sands Expo® and The Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada, beginning in 2019.
“We’re very excited to be going back to the Sands/Venetian. Having the event and people all housed together under one roof gives everyone a lot more in the way of networking opportunities,” says IPCPR Board Secretary and Trade Show Committee Chairman, Scott Regina. “Attendees love it—they get amazing rates on luxury suites at a great property, with over 30 award-winning restaurants on site.”
The move also allows IPCPR to plan ahead, grow the event and evolve to meet its members’ needs as market and government policies change. The association has added more networking events and seminars to the convention schedule over the past few years, and the Sands Expo venue opens up additional opportunities for innovation and expansion.
This year, IPCPR’s 86th Annual Convention & International Trade Show will take place July 13 – 17 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Dates have been set for the 2019 and 2020 events at the Sands Expo and Venetian, where the 87th Annual Convention & International Trade Show will take place June 29 – July 2, 2019, with suite rates of $189 per night, and the 88th Annual Convention & International Trade Show on June 27 – 30, 2020, with rates of $194 per night.
