Online Habanos seminar at Zigarrenwelt. ZigarrenWelt is one of the leading German online shops for cigars and related accessories. The owners are currently making a virtue of necessity. They are the first provider to offer live cigar seminars online.

 Experienced cigar expert Torger Brunken will be leading two events. His colleagues will moderate the discussions and questions that arise during a live chat. Selected questions from the chat will be answered immediately and live. Further interaction will arise through in-between live feedback in the form of surveys. A contemporary innovation on the more conservative cigar market.

 Unusual challenges require unusual solutions

The current situation simply does not allow for a traditional cigar seminar, where people come together to enjoy, learn and discuss. But even though we will miss the social aspect of the cigars, we think we are having a great time with our online seminars. This offers opportunities at a distance, but still together with like-minded people. With great cigars, a suitable rum and simply having a good time. ” says Torger Brunken, Business Development Manager at Gebr. Spohn GmbH.

“ The seminar ‘Havana Cigars – Habanos’ is aimed primarily at beginners and those who have not yet dealt in detail with the topic of cigars. Topics such as cigar production and tobacco cultivation. “Certainly even experienced connoisseurs will still be able to learn a lot. This is shown by the experience of many years of classic seminars in our cigar lounge.” Brunken continues.

 Tickets to the seminar

 In order to partake in the seminar, interested parties have to buy a seminar package on the ZigarrenWelt website. The package is then sent to the participants at home. In addition to 2 Cuban cigars, this also includes a small bottle of Vedado rum, a cigar cutter and of course the access code for the online seminar. Participants will receive the link and access code to the seminar room separately by email. The seminar is scheduled for Friday, April 3rd, 2020 at 8 pm.

In addition to the seminar in which the basics are explained, the Cologne cigar experts are already offering a follow-up seminar. This seminar will be on cigar storage and aging. That seminar is scheduled for April 10, 2020. This seminar is aimed at advanced cigar smokers who want to know more about cigar storage and the processes involved in aging cigars, the so-called aging.
