Why exhibit at TABEXPO 2015 London?

The tobacco industry has gone through some major changes in the past few years, and the changes are continuing at a rate faster than expected or forecast.

With these changes in mind, we're proud to assemble many leading industry and relevant non-industry people to discuss key issues affecting our industry at our Congress, held during the exhibition. We'll be publishing the agenda and announcing participants as we get closer to the event.

In regards to networking, TABEXPO, as always, offers all exhibitors ample opportunity to meet at the Welcome Reception at the end of the first day, where they may enjoy a couple of hours of light refreshments and conversation. The following evening, BMJ, our unwavering sponsor, welcomes the industry to a one of a kind, much anticipated dinner at the Guildhall. Each exhibitor will receive two complimentary tickets to this fabulous event, which includes dinner at the prestigious Guildhall of London.

Rest assured that your organizers are working tirelessly to ensure that the TABEXPO visitor profile is as expected. Our database targets decisionmakers, influencers, purchasing directors—in fact, all of the key individuals within all sectors of the industry.

TABEXPO 2015 is the first tobacco event ever hosted by London, one of the world’s greatest cities, and so we hope to engage with more participants than ever before, at the ExCeL Centre, winner of the World's Leading Meetings & Conference Centre award. Conveniently located close to Canary Wharf and London City Airport, in London's thriving Eastside, the venue offers an incredible 100,000 square meters of flexible event space within a 100-acre waterfront setting, with dozens of contemporary bars, restaurants and pubs, all of which are ideal for after-hours networking and socializing. There is simply no other venue like it.

Then there are the options and opportunities. Tobacco Reporter and event organizers TEM have put together a fantastic floor plan to offer exhibitors greater choice and flexibility. Now you will be able to choose the amount of space and location that fit your needs and budget regardless of when you reserve your stand.
