The biggest event of its kind

IGNITE2022 promises to be another great event for the AITS.

Our 2021 Conference and Show was a great success, and we are expecting a large number of exhibitors and visitors to re-book for May 2022.

The itinerary for the event is being planned right now, and is designed to offer you so much more than in previous years. From relaxing networking opportunities to stimulating talks from industry leaders, plus a two-day trade show and a gala dinner, IGNITE2022 is the tobacco retail sector’s event of the year and is not to be missed.

2021

Our first IGNITE Conference and Show (held in September 2021) was a huge success.

30 leading Exhibitors from the tobacco suppliers sector, more than 140 retailers and other visitors, and a programme of thought-provoking presentations and speeches.

And a lot of networking and negotiating, of course.
