New Venue Announced! 2014 US Cannabis Cup and BIG Industry Show Move

to Denver Mart as Attendance Figures Look Set to Triple

DENVER, March 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The 2013 High Times US Cannabis

Cup in Denver made headlines with its record attendance figures, when

more than 10,000 devotees of the 420 lifestyle descended on Colorado.

However, the figure pales in comparison with the incredible 30,000

attendees who are expected to attend the 2014 Cannabis Cup on April 19

and 20.

The Colorado US Cannabis Cup is part of a week-long celebration of the

420 lifestyle. Combined with the two-day business to business BIG

Industry Show and the one-day Galleria, the event will be the largest

of its kind in the world. With 30,000 attendees expected - nearly

triple the amount who attended last year's event - the combined show

will be making history and ensuring that the 420 lifestyle is given

the attention that it deserves in the eyes of the world.

Beginning at the Denver Mart on April 16, the BIG Industry Show is the

leading industry event for wholesalers, manufacturers and smoke shop

owners. It has become the sector's most important event for setting

merchandise trends for the coming year and for face to face networking

within the sector. Industry professionals will be attending across

both April 16 and 17 to view the exhibitors' wares and place their

orders for the year ahead.

On April 18, the Denver Mart will open its doors to the general

public, who for the first time ever have been invited to attend the

one-day Galleria glass art event. Celebrated glass artists from around

the world will be featured at the show, with all creations on display

having been blown specifically for Galleria. Artists will be available

to speak with members of the public as well as business attendees,

discussing their unique talent and the resulting creations, all of

which have been designed to combine beauty and innovation with


The five-day extravaganza will conclude with the US Cannabis Cup

event, held on April 19 and 20. Featuring activism sessions,

cultivation seminars and live music, as well as a fantastic range of

merchandise for sale, the event will celebrate all aspects of the 420

lifestyle through its range of entertaining and educational


Celebrity supporters and leading figures in the promotion of the 420

lifestyle are due to be among the 30,000-strong crowd descending on

the Denver Mart this April. The city will be thronged with people and

those who don't yet have their tickets are being encouraged to book as

soon as possible to avoid disappointment. Accommodation in the city is

likely to be heavily subscribed, but thankfully the organizers have

taken the trouble to list available hotels on their website to ensure

that everyone can find a place to stay.

With such high attendance expected, the 2014 BIG Industry Show,

Galleria and US Cannabis Cup are expected to mark a massive turning

point for the 420 lifestyle industry and those that support it. At its

new Denver Mart location, with five days of spectacular events all

under one roof, the show is set to become an historic event in the

unfolding tale of the world's engagement with the 420 lifestyle.
