China’s International Cigar Expo Postponed

In a precautionary response to the pandemic and its spreading Delta variant, the second-ever International Cigar Expo in China will not be taking place in November as scheduled. The organizers of the event announced the trade show has been indefinitely postponed.

“We highly appreciate the concern and support… from the entrepreneurs and aficionados of global cigar and related industries and apologize for the inconvenience caused by the postponement,” said ICE’s organizing committee in an official notice.

According to the organization, as of last month, over 95 percent of the booths had been booked. Among the list of companies attending were Habanos S.A., Davidoff of Geneva, Scandinavian Tobacco Group, Chinese cigar manufacturer Great Wall Cigars and cabinet manufacturer Bulldog.

The ICE trade show, which is scheduled to happen every two years, was to take place at the Tianfu International Convention Center in Chengdu. New dates have yet to be announced.
