Top 10 things we learned on Day 1 at IPCPR 2017

Mayor Rudy Giuliani is a bad ass. His keynote speech was what the cigar industry needed to hear from a politician in light of the recent FDA regulations. “President Trump realizes regulations are killing businesses,” he said “Let businesses operate like businesses instead of government -regulated organizations.”

With the changing laws concerning medical cigarettes, two companies I have come up with unique products to aid those smokers. PDR’s Devil’s Weed (in red and dark) provides rollers with a quality tobacco leaf to use as their wrapper. Total Flame has marketed a Russian tube product that you can easily load with your own blend to make a smooth smoke.
Ventura Cigars is bringing back old favorites from their supplier and production partners in the case study line. They cleverly named them Case Studies 1-5. Try them and see if you can find your old favorites.
Stepping up the presentation standards, United-A luxury brand- has perfected beautiful humidified tubes sold with their cigars
Unfortunately this year we lost Avo Uvezian. Davidoff has pledged to continue with the vision AVO began long ago.
For every serious businessman’s office, the new Hiram and Solomon pyramid humidor, complete with 30 of their cigars, is a must have.
Warfighter Cigars is made up of six soldiers who bonded together to create cigars for other soldiers, naming all the cigars after calibers of ammunition.
In a perfect example of how the cigar industry has helped the economies of multiple small countries, Crossfire Cigars has several blends whose profits roll directly back into the Dominican Republic people through hospitals, schooling and jobs.
Davidoff once again presented their Gold Band awards to deserving partner retailers at a press event complete with fancy hors d’oeuvres, Champagne and of course their new Churchhill, Comacho and Avo blends.
IPCPR knows how to party. Light up the Night with General Cigar was the best ever with food, drinks, cigars, drinks, T-shirt screening, cigars, drinks and cigars. And Mombacho parties-Enough said about that.
