Trade Show Wrap-up:
EuroTab 2012, Krakow
April 16-18, 2012 - Targi w Krakowie - Krakow, Poland

EuroTab 2012 - Krakow was the Eastern European retail tobacco trade's exhibition of the year! Retailers, wholesalers, and industry affiliates enjoyed the opportunity to meet with a multitude of suppliers and to explore the latest tobacco products, accessories, and goods. With the grow­ing markets of the region, all attending exhibitors displayed their latest launches and innovations. The fair was bustling with importers, distributors, wholesalers, producers, and vendors from Eastern Europe, Russia, the Former Soviet Republics, and the Baltic and Balkan countries as well as from Turkey, North Africa, and the Near, Middle, and Far East.

Returning to Krakow in its 12th year, EuroTab enjoyed the support of many successful companies who have exhibited at this great show year after year. Retailers conducted business with leaders in tobacco consumer products including manufacturers of cig­arettes, cigars, kretek, and bidis, as well as private label cigarettes, roll-your-own tobacco and accessories, lighters, pipes, hookas, humidors, cases, RYO papers, and displays. This past April EuroTab returned to Poland, one of the region's most vibrant and developed markets. EuroTab2012 was held in the country's bustling city of Krakow. The show attracted manufacturers from all over the world, distributors and retailers from all over the region, and a huge number of visitors from all sectors of the industry.

The show was hosted by Tobacco Products International (TPI), the leading tobacco product journal centering on the European market, and was our largest show to date. After past successful shows in Warsaw, Budapest, Vienna, and Amsterdam, and 3 of our largest consecutive shows in Krakow, EuroTab2012 drew even more visitors and exhibitors, exceeding all past exhibitions. "We've never seen so many visitors, and the amount of business and contacts being made has been extraordinary," said TPI's Managing Editor Evan Dashevsky.
