68 tobaccoasia / Issue 3, 2015 (July/August) Now going into its 37th year, InterTabac, held an- nually in Dortmund, Germany goes from strength to strength as the world's leading exhibition for tobacco wholesalers, distributors, and retailers. In 2014 InterTabac's 500 exhibitors from 50 coun- tries presented the widest and largest display of tobacco products (including e-cigarettes/liquids) and accessories exhibited anywhere to over 12,000 trade visitors. In 2015, the exhibition expands further intro- ducing the accompanying InterSupply, exhibition for tobacco manufacturing with all the equipment, machinery, supplies and services required to bring tobacco products to the marketplace. The orga- nizers Messe Westfalenhallen have opened a new – and largest – hall to accommodate this new expo. Although everyone expects perennial exhibi- tors such as Philip Morris, British American To- bacco Reemstma (Imperial), Agio, Arnold Andre, Dannemann, to support InterTabac some may be surprised at the growing support this show in Eu- rope not gets from Asia and the Middle East. Highlighted in this article are some of the com- panies participating in InterTabac and InterSupply 2015 from these regions: Indonesia Djarum, founded in 1951 in Kudus, Indone- sia, is the leading global kretek supplier provid- ing consistently high quality range of products. Availably on international market since 1972, Djarum products continue their advance with loyal customers on many regions including the United States and Europe. Products include Djarum Black series of products and LA Men- thol Lights. NV STTC (Sumatra Tobacco Trading Co) is a fully 100% export trade company producing its own line of cigarette brands, popular in Asia and now gaining markets globally. Products include Jet and Hero. China There are literally too many exhibitors from China to mention in this short article, as China supplies the greatest number of exhibitors to InterTabac and InterSupply second only to InterTabac's home country of Germany. InterTabac boasts three of China's four cigar manufacturers and has for some years now. Chi- na Tobacco Chuanyu TIC has the largest cigar production based in Asia boasting its now famous Great Wall brand. China Tobacco Hubei Indus- trial Corp has made many investments in facto- ries, cooperation in the past years and its brands are coming more well knows, such as Yellow Crane Tower 1916, a hand rolled luxury cigar product. And from Shandong, believed to be the origin of Ori- ental cigars, having opened the first cigar factory in China in 1903 comes China Tobacco Shandong Industrial Corp and is famous for its General line of cigar products. Asia Visits InterTabac and the New InterSupply Of course when it comes to e-cigarettes and e-liquids, China and Shenzhen City in particular is the well-known epicenter of this products shock- waves going out through the tobacco industry. Again, too many to mention but the leading e-ciga- rette suppliers are present as usual, including Chi- na First Union, ALD, Kimree, Kamry, Smok, Smoore, Sailing, Moore Brothers, and others. The quality e-liquids suppliers are there too such as Dekang, the leading high-tech manufac- turer and sales of raw materials and plant extracts of pharmaceutical grade including e-liquids and shisha products.
