Even though InterTabac was postponed once to September 2021, Messe Dortmund GmbH feels it’s still not safe to hold an in-person trade fair and serve the industry sufficiently. It’s why plans for a 2021 edition have been scrapped and Messe Dortmund will host InterTabac in September 2022.
The new official dates have been set for September 15th – September 17th and programming will take place amidst strict COVID-19 protective measures. The health and safety of everyone in attendance is of the utmost importance right now. There’s no word as of yet whether InterTabac 2022 will be held as a hybrid event with large digital portions.
Inter Tabac is the world’s leading trade fair for the tobacco sector. It exists as a major marketplace for international brands to meet with big buyers and break into new markets. With the rise of e-smoking and vaping, Inter Tabac has once again found itself at the centre of the industry and is the definitive place to experience the latest trends and technological innovations. The international fair is run out of Dortmund, Germany every September. Messe Dortmund opens its doors to industry professionals for three days total. Inter Tabac presents exhibitors with the opportunity to gain new visibility and break into fresh markets. The format also makes product launches and presentations highly lucrative and successful.
The product portfolio is definitely one of the richest in the world.
