Official Sponsor of CIgar Coop’s Summer of ’20 Coverage



While the 2020 Premium Cigar Association Trade Show has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, that has not stopped Cigar Coop from bringing to you structured coverage of the Summer of 2020 product releases and associated news. Below is a landing page where you can see all of the coverage of releases either announced or shipping during the Summer months. We will also cover creative and innovative ways companies are adjusting to not having a trade show. While this will never take the place of a physical trade show, we hope you find this useful and informative.
