Cigars International (CI) announced today that the company will host “Virtual CIGARFest 2020,” a weekend of events, special guests, interviews and raffle prizes on Friday, October 16th and Saturday, October 17th.
Virtual CIGARfest 2020 kicks off on Friday, October 16th at 10:30 AM EST and runs through Saturday, October 17th at 5 PM EST. All events will be broadcast on the CIGARfest Facebook page, where cigar fans can join in and chat with their favorite cigar makers. For those unable to watch live, each interview will also be uploaded to the Cigars International YouTube channel, once the interview is complete.
Steve McDevitt, director of sales and customer service for Cigars International, said, “We cannot put into words how disappointed we were in having to cancel CIGARfest 2020, and we couldn’t let the year go by without having a virtual event. Let’s face it, nothing can replace enjoying a cigar with friends, both old and new, in person. But we can get pretty darn close. Virtual CIGARfest 2020 will be the next best thing to the real thing, and we’re all ready to make this the premier virtual cigar event of the year.”
Cigar celebrities from Drew Estate, Oliva, Altadis U.S.A, Macanudo, CAO, Diesel, Quality Importers, Xikar, Rocky Patel, Perdomo, Room101, and Southern Draw will make special appearances during virtual CIGARFest 2020. Each event will be fully interactive, with cigar makers taking questions from the online audience. Additionally, those watching live will have opportunities to win exciting prizes during each and every segment.
All cigar lovers of legal smoking age can enjoy Virtual CIGARFest2020. There are no ticket sales, sign-up requirements or other prerequisites for participating.
