Why We Attend

Highlight of the Year!

Attending the PCA trade show is one of the highlights of the year! Being around like-minded retailers and getting that first in-person peek at new products from our manufacturing partners is so valuable to my business and my spirit. Nothing beats these in-person interactions! I can’t wait for the 2021 trade show!!!

Can’t Afford to Miss It!

With 30+ years in the premium cigar business, I consider the most critical component of keeping my stores relevant is attending the annual PCA Show. Not only do I connect and buy from key manufacturers, but the ability to network with fellow successful retailers is invaluable. It is my continuing education to be better year over year and I cannot afford to miss it.

Can’t Wait for The Show!

We look forward to the PCA Trade Show each year as an opportunity to try to products, meet new manufacturers, trade tips with other vendors and reconnect with old friends. We always come home re-energized and ready to improve our shop and selection of tobacco.

I Always Attend the PCA Show!

I always look forward to the PCA trade show. There are great show deals we always take advantage of but it’s more than just buying…..it’s about renewing acquaintances with other retailers & meeting new ones, sharing and comparing ideas, learning best practices, building stronger relationships with manufacturers and collaborating with them in building sales and brands. Attending the PCA Show is one of the best ways to accomplish all this—that’s why I attend and why I bring a large contingent of my associates from Smoker Friendly!

Why We Exhibit & Sponsor

The most relevant and important show for the entire handmade cigar industry!

The PCA trade show is the most relevant and important show for the entire handmade cigar industry. Not only does it allow us to showcase our new and existing brands but it helps us cultivate relationships with all our retailers. The show provides education on all the challenges the industry faces on the state and federal level. It provides tools for the retailers to help them improve their business practices. Now for the first time there will be specialty brands made by many manufacturers that will ONLY be available to retailers who attend PCA 2021. And the show helps generate revenue so that we can tackle challenges from the FDA, fight lawsuits, tackle state anti-smoking and taxation issues that affect all retailers and manufacturers. If you’re not there you’re not relevant and simply missing out!!!

The PCA Show is The Ultimate business opportunity!

The Premium Cigar Association is the voice and the soul of our industry. With more than 80 years of experience in federal, state and local advocacy, fighting for our rights, we would not be thriving without the PCA leading the charge. The annual PCA trade show is the vehicle that brings us all together as one. It provides the environment for us to see old friends and make new ones. It is the ultimate business opportunity where there’s a concentration of buyers and sellers, and there is more business done at this show than any other singular event throughout the year. It is the one gathering where we get to celebrate the entire industry. I am happy to be an exhibitor and a sponsor and to have the opportunity to support such a great association.”

The PCA trade show unifies our industry!

It was always a given that we would launch ACE Prime at the PCA trade show. We wanted to start this journey amongst friends, at an event that embodies the cigar industry and its passions. The PCA Trade Show isn’t just about transactions between retailers and manufacturers —it’s a place of reunion with friends, where new relationships are established, and where the cigar industry feels less like business and more like family. This trade show really unifies the cigar industry, designing unique opportunities for retailers and manufacturers to connect. What makes it valuable goes beyond business, whether for manufacturers launching new products or retailers making yearly orders. It’s the human factor, the relationships that are truly at the core of our industry. PCA is a catalyst for this, an agent in uniting the cigar industry, gathering people together who share the same passion and can connect to continue to grow in their ventures as cigar retailers, manufacturers, or consumers.

The Best Place place to launch my product!

Since we re-launched in 2018, one thing that made a significant positive impact on the company—by far, was our presence at the PCA trade show. It was the best opportunity to place our product directly in the hands of those with whom we want to partner, get a chance to introduce it to hundreds of potential partners from all over the world, and all for a considerably lower cost when compared to what it would have cost me to travel around to meet the same people and have the same conversations in their respective stores. Not to mention it would have taken a hell of a lot longer than 3 days! The show absolutely helped propel us to where we are today —we’re in 151 shops across 61 accounts in 28 states! That also helped us raise $12,000 for the cause we serve. Not only is this a testament to the PCA Board, staff, and trade show itself, but also to the retail members who attend and to whom I’ll be forever grateful for helping me get started.

The relationships made here pay dividends for years!

I still remember my very first PCA trade show. The year was 1997 and the trade show was in Orlando, Florida. I didn’t know many people back then but I can tell you that I made friendships that are still going strong today. Participation in the annual trade show is a great way to meet so many people in the span of just a few days. From the actual show floor to the dinners and parties after, the relationships that sprout up and are nourished in such a short time pays dividends for years. Since its’ inception, AJ Fernandez Cigar Company has always exhibited at the trade show. Our distribution network relies heavily on the tobacconists that are all over this great nation. We do not sell direct to consumer and that makes our relationships with our retail partners that much more important. This is the one time each year that the retailers come together and we are able to see most of them in a short span.”

NOTE ABOUT PHISHING SCAMS & 3RD PARTY HOTEL DEALS

Similar to years past, the PCA will have exclusive discounts available to our attendees for participating hotels and will provide this information to our members as soon as it is available. These special rates are exclusive to the PCA and any and all information re. this will be sent directly from us.

The PCA does not work with 3rd party vendors. Any “deals” or “offers” that arrive in your inbox from an email address not associated with the PCA is spam and should be treated as such. Phishing scams are very common, especially in the months leading up to any trade show, so we advise using caution and checking the email address from the sender before opening any email that may appear similar to ours.
