Ready for Vegas

Posted: Jul 15, 2011 12:00am ET

Next week, nearly the entire cigar industry will gather in Las Vegas for the annual IPCPR trade show. It's a showcase of new cigars behind booths manned by all the personalities of the cigar industry, with retailers from around the United States (and some from outside the U.S.) walking the aisles looking to buy.

Team Cigar Aficionado is ready to head out there and fill our notebooks.Gordon Mott and I will be blogging from the show next week, keeping you abreast of what's going on. Gregory Mottola and Andrew Nagy will be taking notes for future web stories as well as our comprehensive writeups in Cigar Insider. We're going to puff and write away to let you know what to expect in the coming weeks and months.

I'm not sure what type of crowd to expect, but I hear that the booth space has sold out, which is a very good sign. There's an excitement about heading back to Las Vegas, and I'm especially happy due to the recent lessening of Nevada's smoking ban. Smoking with your meal is back in some places, and I'm looking forward to puffing away after dinner.

Follow the site next week to keep abreast of what's going on. And since virtually everyone who makes a great cigar will be out there, if you have questions for them, let me know, and we'll do our best to get them answered.

For those of you in the industry, see you in Vegas. For everyone reading, follow us next week as we smoke up a storm at the trade show.

Hope to find you there on the show floor and show you the new product. Simply the best way to light a cigar!

All the best,
Tom

Both encouraging and enthusiastic news. This makes me feel like lighting-up a Behike or a '66 Cohiba . . . enjoy.

Let's see; it's Tuesday and not a peep out of you yet. Too much happy time I bet!
