TPE began as Tobacco Plus Expo, the go-to annual trade expo featuring thousands of top-selling tobacco, vapor, and alternative products. Now known as Total Product Expo, TPE has expanded with new categories like gifts, snacks, and apparel to offer alongside the many other products the TPE show is known for.
Our exhibitors and attendees come from around the globe, bringing together products, deals, trends, and buying power.
With 3 BIG days of in-person buying, showing, and networking, the Total Product Expo is THE ultimate destination for the independent retailer. It’s where serious business gets done, and makes it fun.
The TPE Industry Party happens on TPE’s opening night, kicking off the show with food, drinks, music, and fun. Your trade show badge is required for entrance to the party. Find more details about the party here.
All booths must be carpeted or have flooring installed. No exposed concrete is permitted. If flooring is not in place by 8:00PM, the day prior to the show opening, carpet will be installed and directly billed to you by our General Contractor (Shepard Exposition Services).
This policy is strictly enforced and will prohibit your ability to exhibit at TPE
Aisle carpet is Red (Tobacco), Blue (Alternative & Vape), and Peacock (New Convenience Corner Area)

As an exhibitor, you will receive a welcome email from TPE that includes the Exhibitor Portal link and your login credentials to access the Exhibitor Service Manual once it is available. An email with the link for the Online Exhibitor Service Manual will be available August 1, 2022.
The Exhibitor Service Manual includes important information exhibitors need, like:
Details about the Nevada Tax License, a Certificate of Insurance, and general show info.
The Exhibitor Service Manual (ESM) provides important show-related information, deadlines, products, and services. The ESM is generated by our General Contractor (Shepard Exposition Services) and provides the rules and regulations for the venue as well as on/around the show floor.
The ESM includes the details of move-in / move-out time and methods, material handling services, advanced warehouse, show site marshalling yard, labor information, electrical services, catering and more.
The ESM should be accessed via your TPE Exhibitor Portal. Upon securing a booth, exhibitors receive a welcome email from A2Z which includes a link and login credentials to the Portal and the ESM is one of the tiles within this portal.
Drayage, or material handling, is the unloading and delivery of exhibitor freight to individual booths. This is handled by Shepard Exposition Services. The service may also include storage of empty crates and boxes, re-delivery of crates and boxes after the show’s close, and transportation back to the loading dock for shipping to the next destination.
For safety, security, and insurance liability reasons, Exhibitors are not allowed to use booth personnel badges for their customers or clients (or other retailers or buyers) attending the TPE show. The TPE show will audit Exhibitor booth personnel rosters, and unauthorized registration credentials will be cancelled.
