InterTabac and InterSupply - Leading trade fairs in a modern guise

Preliminary report on InterTabac 2019 - This year for the first time with an exciting supporting programme

One year after its anniversary, the InterTabac, world's largest trade fair for tobacco products and smoking accessories, presents itself in a modernised look. After an intensive construction phase, visitors will be able to enjoy the light-flooded North Entrance for the first time at Messe Dortmund from 20th to 22nd September 2019. The parallel InterSupply, the trade fair for the production of tobacco products and e-cigarettes, is now also an integral part of the tobacco industry. A total of 640 exhibitors from 60 countries represent the entire value chain of the tobacco industry at both fairs this year.

Everything that has rank and reputation in the tobacco industry will gather at the end of September at the Dortmund Trade Fair Centre. For more than 40 years, InterTabac has established itself as the world's largest trade fair for tobacco products and smoking accessories. This weekend, 520 exhibitors from 47 countries will be presenting everything a smoker's heart desires, from fine cut to e-cigarettes, shishas and cigars.

Wide range of products offered by the sub-sectors
The range of tobacco products has expanded enormously in the recent past. Of course, this is also reflected at this year's InterTabac. E-cigarettes, liquids, tobacco heaters, vape, smoke-free products and CBD - the list of trend products is long. The so-called Next Generation Products are on everyone's lips and will therefore be presented at the fair in the entire Westfalenhalle as well as in Halls 1 and 2 of Messe Dortmund.

This year, the classic tobacco industry will once again be represented in Halls 4 to 7. Many major manufacturers will once again be represented and showcase their products and innovations - additive-free products and XXL packs are just two of the industry trends to be seen at the world's largest trade fair. Cigar lovers can look forward to a variety of low-priced to high-class products, while pipe smokers can expect particularly high-quality designs this weekend.
As a hip way to relax, shisha is also very much in vogue - the entire Hall 8 and part of Hall 6 at Messe Dortmund are dedicated to the range of water pipes, tobacco, coal and accessories.

New services enrich the trade fair duo
New is not only the modern North Entrance, which guarantees visitors contemporary admission management and thus shorter waiting times. The range of services at this year's fair has also been further improved with a shuttle service for international guests.

The exclusive supporting programme, which consists of lectures and seminars accompanying the trade fair, will celebrate its premiere. High-calibre experts will be offering a wide range of information on exciting industry topics, which will provide valuable impulses for the specialist trade in particular. Dr. Felix Stehle explains on Sunday in his lecture "Generation of a nicotine-free, non-transgenic tobacco plant" how he developed a nicotine-free tobacco plant with the help of genetic engineering, which will make it possible to produce nicotine-free cigarettes in the future. Another highlight is the "Cigar & Rum Tasting" on the same day of the fair, which was fully booked after only a short time. Here, international premium rum brands and Nicaraguan cigars are combined to create an exciting taste experience. These and many other events are free of charge for all trade fair visitors.
