LAS VEGAS – Attendees of the upcoming Tobacco Plus Expo (TPE) can attend a convenience-store panel featuring the head of the newly created ExtraMile Convenience Stores, the joint-venture entity formed by Chevron USA Inc. and Idaho retailer Jackson Food Stores.

Scheduled for Feb. 11-13, 2019, at the Las Vegas Convention Center, the TPE conference and trade show will feature a wide range of industry speakers, as well as a full floor of exhibitors representing an array of tobacco products.

The c-store panel is set for 11 a.m. Feb. 13 and will feature Paul Casadont, president of ExtraMile Convenience Stores, Pleasanton, Calif.; Bill McCloskey, COO of Rmarts, Deerfield, Ill.; John Zikias, former executive adviser for Holmes Oil Co., Chapel Hill, N.C.; and attorney Henry Roemer from Finger, Roemer, Brown and Mariani, Winston-Salem, N.C.

As in past years, Lakeville, Minn.-based NATO will lead tobacco-focused educational sessions on Feb. 11, with topics ranging from regulatory issues to product-movement trends.

Officials with TPE 2019 say the annual event “brings together the entire tobacco, vapor and alternative industries for three days of networking, learning, exhibiting and buying. It’s a show aimed at building relationships and partnerships, and honoring every facet of our ever-evolving, always-growing industry.”

The TPE show is operated through companies owned by Kretek International, Moorpark, Calif.
