(DORTMUND, DE) Capitalizing on sales success in the US, El Artista will attend and exhibit at InterTabac 2017 in Dortmund Germany in September to establish a firm foundation for the brand in Europe. InterTabac is the world’s largest trade show for tobacco products. It is composed of thousands of exhibitors from dozens of countries. “I am very excited, this is our first time as an exhibitor at this show,” says Radhames Rodriguez President of El Artista Cigars, “Our focus at the show will be on growing our core line and developing new business with our distributor”.

El Artista recently contracted with Kleinlagel Zigarrenfabrik which began distributing El Artista in September 2017. “Our strategy in Europe starts with a good partner. A group that knows boutique brands and has the experience to grow with us, which is why we chose Kleinlagel,” says Jonas Santana Marketing Manager for El Artista.
