Date Changes for IPCPR 2020
[Washington, DC, May 21, 2019] The International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailers Association (IPCPR) is pleased to announce new dates for the 2020 trade show. The 88th Annual Convention and International Trade Show will take place Friday, July 10 – Tuesday, July 14, 2020. Educational sessions and Opening Party will take place Friday, July 10.
This date change moves the trade show back to the second week of July, as it has historically been held for the past several years.
“We are very happy we’ve been able to negotiate new dates with the Sands,” said Scott Pearce, IPCPR executive director. “While it was necessary for us to hold the event earlier this year in order to get the show back to the Sands, we heard loud and clear that the timing was not the best for our attendees. We are fortunate we have such a great partner in the Sands to allow us to make this change.”
Scott Regina, chair of the IPCPR Trade Show Committee, remarked that this continuity with the Sands and the dates will hopefully build more excitement around the annual show. “Our goal is to continuously work on building a better show experience and we believe that being able to move the dates will translate into a more successful event for everyone,” Regina said.
