Habanos SA cigar Executives

Eduardo Gonzalez, Cuban international marketing manager of Habanos S.A., enjoys a Cohiba Robusto cigar after a press conference in Havana, February 10, 2005. Cuba will be hosting the 6th International Havana Cigar Festival from February 21 to 25. Cigar aficionados attending the annual event need not to panic, they will not be subject to the island’s new ban on smoking in public places. The Cuban cigar company Habanos S.A. got special authorization to ignore the ban so its 950 guests, mostly retailers and well-heeled cigar lovers, can light up their Partagas, Cohibas and Montecristos during the festival.
