The event arena of Hall 1 will be integrated into the trade fair for the first time in 2018 and will be exclusively dedicated to the Next Generation Products (NGPs) topic segment. The adjacent Halls 2 and 3A cover the same main topic segment and thus make the business platform for NGPs even larger and more attractive. Exhibitors in Hall 1 include Niko Liquids Trading, InnoCigs – Mr. Smoke, Ex-Trade, Intrade Concepts – ZAZO eLiquids EZIGARETTEN- and Fair Vape.

REEMTSMA is currently launching its ‘Blu’ brand on the German e-cigarette market. The product is already available in the United States of America, Great Britain, France and Italia and is very successful in the United States and other countries. In 2018, the company will showcase the brand for the first time at InterTabac in Hall 1.

A total of 560 exhibitors participated in InterTabac 2017 and 12,500 trade visitors from 64 countries came to the exhibition halls. InterTabac will take place from 21 to 23 September in 2018. It will again be co-located with InterSupply, the international trade fair for the production of tobacco goods in Hall 3B.
