The Cigar Rights of America leadership was recently in Las Vegas to attend and speak at the Premium Cigar Association (PCA) annual event. The event, which took place July 9-13 at the Sands Expo and Venetian Resort, is the premier annual gathering for the premium cigar and pipe tobacco industry and CRA was there to represent cigar rights.
The event included a week of advocacy and grassroots panels, government affair updates, a PCA executive committee Q&A and a tradeshow.
Several board and executive members of CRA spoke, including Mike Copperman, CRA federal regulatory and legislative director. “The PCA event is a pillar of the cigar advocacy efforts here in the U.S., giving attendees an exclusive look into grassroots efforts and government legislative updates for enthusiasts,” he said. “It’s important to educate enthusiasts, store owners and manufacturers so they can take action to protect their freedoms.”
CRA leaders find the PCA event meaningful to educate and connect with other manufacturers, shop and lounge owners and enthusiasts. Together, all stakeholders can address the obstacles premium cigar smokers face. CRA leadership plans on attending and speaking again in the future.
