LAS VEGAS -- In January, Convenience Store News assembled its 2013 Tobacco Summit in Las Vegas. Held in conjunction with Tobacco Plus Expo International, the CSNews Tobacco Summit brought together tobacco category managers from seven large and medium-sized convenience store chains to discuss the challenges and opportunities in the tobacco category, including cigarettes, cigars, moist smokeless, electronic cigarettes and other tobacco products.
The event -- sponsored by Swedish Match and CIGR8 -- was highlighted by a presentation on the future of tobacco by Bonnie Herzog, managing director of beverage, tobacco and consumer research for Wells Fargo Securities LLC.
