Cigar Trophy Awards ceremony at Business Insights
The Cigar Trophy Awards ceremony will be broadcast online on Business Insights – the brand new InterTabac and InterSupply web platform – on 16 September 2021. Winners of the well-known and popular readership awards are chosen by Cigar Journal magazine and are honoured each year at InterTabac.
Dortmund, 15 September 2021 – This year, 16 September will not only see the new online platform Business Insights get off to a flying start – the Cigar Trophy Awards will also be presented in a virtual setting for the second time, and can be followed live on Business Insights and via social media.
This year's well-known and popular Cigar Journal readership awards will honour winners in the categories Best Brand, Best Cigar, Best Value, Best Accessory and Best Virtual Lounge. In the latter category, the decision has been taken to honour virtual lounges in particular, as many venues were closed for a very long time due to COVID. Consumers were asked to nominate their favourites in the first half of June and, of the 50,000+ nominations, the names mentioned most often made it onto the shortlist. Voting then got underway, attracting 140,000 votes this year, with voters able to choose between the five most popular candidates in each category.
Four additional trophies will also be awarded on 16 September, as determined by the Cigar Journal editorial team. Here, the editors will recognise industry winners in the categories Outstanding Art, Charity & Community, Ambassador and Lifetime Achievement.
The next InterTabac show, where the Cigar Trophy Awards are traditionally presented, and InterSupply will open their doors at Dortmund's exhibition centre between 15 and 17 September 2022. Up-to-date information on the new platform, highlights and trade show news can be found on the show websites (InterTabac/InterSupply), LinkedIn and directly via newsletter (InterTabac/InterSupply).
