Jeremy Casdagli guest at Tabakado Meet & Greet 2019. Just like the last few years, Jeremy Casdagli will be present at the yearly Meet & Greet hosted by the Eindhoven based retailer Tabakado.

The Meet & Greet started a few years ago when the Dutch Big Smoke was canceled due to government fines. And the event has been growing since, even though it never reached the 500 tickets of the last Big Smoke in Rotterdam. Both events shared similarities but are also quite different.



From the first event on, Jeremy Casdagli has been present at the Meet & Greet. In a conversation with us, he confirmed that he will be there again on Sunday, September 15th.

Last year, we visited the Meet & Greet. A video of the event can be found here. Besides Casdagli, a few other cigar manufacturers were around as guests of honor. Including David Blanco from Blanco Cigars. Juan Lopez from Gurkha was there as well. Just as Philip Zanghi (Indian Motorcycle/Debonaire) with his manufacturer Nirka Reyes Estrella. And Tony Gomez from La Flor Dominicana. Who the other guests will be this year has not been revealed yet. Tickets are on sale for €90 at Tabakado. The ticket price includes a BBQ and cigars.

Mariska Kelch, who owns Tabakado with her mother, is also the owner of Kelch Trading. That’s the newest premium cigar distributor in The Netherlands. We expect a few more brands from the Kelch Trading family to be present.
