IMPORTANT POLICY NOTE ON FDA COMPLIANCE PERTAINING TO TOBACCO SAMPLES AT IPCPR TRADE SHOW (new in 2017):
 
Under FDA’s policy, it is permissible for a business to distribute free samples in a limited quantity (i.e., no more than necessary to achieve a business or marketing goal, such as awareness of and exposure to the product for the purposes of product or inventory selection) to another business as part of a genuine effort to sell or market a tobacco product to that business.  Product sample distribution to consumers during the trade show is strictly prohibited.  Non-employees of member companies are expressly prohibited from attending IPCPR's 85th Annual Convention & International Trade Show will not be issued badges or allowed entry into any of the event functions. We expect all members to adhere to this policy and not attempt to bring non-employees to the show.
