On 16-17 May, Tobacco Magazine organised Tobacco Hungary, one of the country’s largest tobacco market conferences, for the eighth time, which was again hosted by Hunguest Hotel BÁL Resort in Balatonalmádi. The Continental Tobacco Group had its own stand at the event, and CEO Csaba Füzi gave a presentation on the importance of preserving the Hungarian tobacco culture.

For the eighth time, the Tobacco Hungary conference served as an important meeting place for the domestic tobacco industry, focusing on the issues that most affect the retail sector. During the two-day event, a number of key issues were addressed, including the future of tobacco production and processing, the economic challenges of the sector, the challenges of the black market and how to tackle it, the integration of the new generation into the workplace, and sustainability issues such as the impact of the mandatory bottle buy-back regulation (DRS) on tobacconists.

On the second day of the conference, Csaba Füzi, CEO of Continental Tobacco Corp., discussed the current situation and future prospects of Hungarian tobacco production as part of his presentation entitled “The situation of Hungarian tobacco production in 2024”. In his presentation, he placed particular emphasis on the importance of preserving the centuries-old Hungarian tobacco culture, highlighting the need to increase the efficiency of production processes, sustainability efforts and the need to react quickly to market trends. During the presentation he outlined the challenges facing the sector and the solutions offered by the Continental Group.

Continental Tobacco was also represented with a booth during the conference, where participants could get a direct insight into the company’s latest products and technological innovations. At the stand, visitors were given detailed information about Continental’s range of tobacco products and had the opportunity to consult with our experts.
