A Call to Attend the 2015 NATO Show

The NATO Show was created by NATO members for NATO members and the upcoming 2015 NATO Show has been planned to provide first rate educational seminars on the most important tobacco topics that concern retailers and offer hundreds of exhibitor booths with the latest tobacco products on the market. If you regularly attend the NATO Show or if you have not been to the NATO Show in the past several years, you need to plan to attend the upcoming 2015 NATO Show being held at the Paris Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas on April 22-23, 2015.

Attending the NATO Show is so important to industry retailers, wholesalers, and manufacturers that NATO board members, NATO Trade Show Committee members, and NATO Executive Director Tom Briant will be calling NATO members and inviting them to attend the premier tobacco trade show designed specifically with the NATO member in mind.

Reasons to Attend the NATO Show

The top five reasons for you to attend the 2015 NATO Show whether you are a retailer, wholesaler, or manufacturer are as follows:

Reason #1: The NATO Show includes critically important educational seminar topics with expert speakers and presenters.

Reason #2: The NATO Show is the only tobacco industry trade show to schedule Mitch Zeller, the FDA’s Director of the Center for Tobacco Products, to speak on the agency’s tobacco regulations. Hearing first hand from Mitch Zeller about current and pending FDA tobacco regulations is invaluable to retailers, wholesalers, and manufacturers.

Reason #3: Other key presenters include Dr. Brad Rodu (an expert on the health benefits of e-cigarettes), a panel of e-cigarette industry experts, key industry leaders on cigars, Don Burke with insights on key industry trends, and NATO’s Executive Director Tom Briant with his in-depth look at local, state and federal tobacco issues.

Reason #4: The exhibit floor will have hundreds of booths with exhibitors from all tobacco product categories, including the latest innovative products. Many of the exhibitors will be offering special show deals to save you money on your tobacco product purchases.

Reason #5: NATO retail and wholesale members attend the educational seminars and have access to the full trade show floor without any registration fees and also receive complimentary tickets to both the Opening Night Reception on Tuesday, April 21st and the members-only NATO Annual Awards Dinner on Wednesday, April 22nd.
