DENVER, Feb. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The BIG Industry Show has unquestionably secured its position on the international 420 lifestyle scene, with the 2014 event – being held in Denver, Colorado, from April 16 thru 20 – set to be even more spectacular than those of previous years.

International exhibitors have been queuing up to get involved in the show, which is being held in partnership with Galleria and the High Times Cannabis Cup, as part of a five-day-long extravaganza. The 2014 show is set to beat its previous record as the largest business-to-business smoke shop and 420 lifestyle industry event in the world, when it opens its doors at the Denver Mart on April 16.

Some 30,000 delegates are expected to attend the combined BIG Industry Show, Galleria and 2014 US Cannabis Cup, flooding in to Denver from all corners of the globe. The event will help to secure Denver's growing reputation as one of the best cities for hosting business activities. The rise in shows in the city has already seen traffic coming into Denver International Airport increase considerably, with the latest inbound passenger figures (for November 2013) showing an increase of 25% on the same month in 2012 (a rise from 29,932 to 37,305 passengers).

Spanning the first two days of the five-day event, the BIG Industry Show has attracted a broad range of 420 industry exhibitors. Manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors are lining up their latest and most exciting products in order to raise industry awareness, launch new product lines and reach out to new markets.

Business buyers have been snapping up tickets in anticipation of the wide range of offers and deals that are traditionally available as part of the event. Store owners, distributors and wholesale buyers who service smoke shops are eagerly awaiting the show, anxious to get a glimpse of the latest products available to the sector and confirm their stock requirements for 2014. The show also attracts a key component from the specialty and alternative gift markets – both buyers and sellers.

With buying and networking high on the agenda, the mixture of local and international attendees looks set to be an exciting one and the BIG Industry Show couldn't have come at a better time. With the world's eyes currently on Colorado thanks to the state having legalized the opening of recreational marijuana retail establishments as of January 1, a clear cut demonstration of the business sense of the move – in the form of the revenue generated by the BIG Industry Show – will be a timely reminder of the economic wisdom behind Colorado's decision.

While the show is almost fully subscribed, a few opportunities to get involved do remain. Those looking to be part of this industry-leading event can find out further information and the latest schedule for the show by visiting
