Art with attitude – new graffiti installation spreads excitement through Denver as part of 2014 BIG Industry Show

Denver, Colorado

March 28, 2014

Summary: In the past ten years, graffiti has evolved as one of the world’s most dynamic and edgy art forms. Now, graffiti comes to Colorado in style thanks to an innovative new installation from the BIG Industry Show.

Graffiti has come a long way in the past decade. From the mysterious, politically positioned street art of Banksy in London to the work of Mr Brainwash in LA, graffiti’s reputation has slowly transformed into one of the most stylish and cutting edge art forms of our day.

Now, for the first time, graffiti is set to take Denver, Colorado by storm, as the leading 420 industry event – the BIG Industry Show, Galleria glass exhibition and High Times US Cannabis Cup – planned for this April announces its latest surprise: a graffiti installation that is set to highlight some of the best and brightest talents of this dynamic art form.

The graffiti installation blends perfectly with the ethos of the overall show, which is set to take place in the Denver Mart on April 16 thru 20. The event begins with the two-day BIG Industry show – the leading business to business event for the 420 sector. Functional glass art is then celebrated on 18 April, with the Galleria glass exhibition attracting glass artists from across the globe. The last two days of the event see the High Times US Cannabis Cup 2014 celebrate all aspects of the 420 lifestyle.

The 2014 show is set to break all previous records. It has already moved venues after the number of attendees jumped from last year’s figure of 10,000 to an expected 30,000 this year. The organizers have responded accordingly, building up the show’s offerings in line with such massive demand.

The graffiti installation, which will be run in partnership with leading spray can company Ironlak, is the latest way in which the massive five-day event is reaching out to new and alternative sectors in order to reward attendees. The trend has already seen organizers BIG announce the addition of the event’s first ever tattoo exhibition and the inclusion of the innovative Dunkxchange sneaker show.

Above all else, the 2014 show is set to be about inclusion. A wide range of crossover partnerships, such as those mentioned above, will ensure that the event offers something for everyone, catering to a vast range of tastes and interests while still maintaining the 420 lifestyle focus for which it has built up such a strong reputation.

Artists, DJs, wholesalers, exhibitors, business owners, shopkeepers, consumers, celebrities, activists, campaigners – the list of those attracted to the 2014 show is impressive. With only a short time left for attendees to buy tickets and, indeed, only a few tickets still available, this year’s event is set to truly take Denver by storm. It’s likely to be one of the biggest and most exciting lifestyle events that the US will witness this year.

New venue announced! 2014 US Cannabis Cup and BIG Industry Show move to Denver Mart as attendance figures look set to triple

Denver, Colorado

February 6, 2014

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 19 and 20 April.

With tens of thousands of attendees flying in from across the US and further afield, the event’s organizers have had to move the venue to the larger-capacity Denver Mart in order to make room for so many delegates.

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 16 April, 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 merchandize trends for the coming year and for face to face networking within the sector. Industry professionals will be attending across both 16 and 17 April to view the exhibitors’ wares and place their orders for the year ahead.

On 18 April, 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 Exhibition. Celebrated glass blowing 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.

The five-day extravaganza will conclude with the US Cannabis Cup event, held on 19 and 20 April. Featuring activism sessions, cultivation seminars and live music, as well as a fantastic range of merchandize for sale, the event will celebrate all aspects of the 420 lifestyle through its range of entertaining and educational activities.

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.

First ever tattoo exhibition to feature at 2014 BIG Industry Show and US Cannabis Cup Denver, Colorado February 13, 2014 Summary: As expenditure on tattoos in the US is confirmed as reaching $1.65 billion, the innovative BIG Industry Show and High Times US Cannabis Cup partnership announce their first ever tattoo exhibition as part of the 2014 event. According to new data from the Pew Research Center, Americans spend $1.65 billion on tattoos every year. The research coincides with the news that the combined BIG Industry Show and High Times US Cannabis Cup 2014 event in Denver, Colorado this April will feature a tattoo exhibition as part of its celebration of all aspects of the 420 lifestyle. The event runs from April 16 thru 20, beginning with the two day BIG Industry Show – the 420 lifestyle’s leading business to business event.

The Galleria glass exhibition will follow on April 18, celebrating the work of glass blowing artists at the forefront of the industry and open to the public for the first time. The event will conclude with the two day US Cannabis Cup on April 19 and 20. The latest announcement from the event’s organizers confirms rumors that tattooing will be available at the BIG Industry Show and US Cannabis Cup for the first time. Based on the Pew Research Center’s finding that 45 million Americans have at least one tattoo, the new exhibition and tattooing service will be a major draw for attendees. In recognition of the fact that 49% of people see the reputation of the tattoo artist or studio as the most important factor when considering getting a tattoo, the show will include only the best of the industry’s artists. These will form the ‘Hustle Row’ of celebrated tattooists, including BJ Betts, John Anderton, Forrest, Johnny Smith, Craig Foster, Daniel Walker, El Whyner, Cesar Morales, Karl Berringer, Garrett Harper, Aimeè Cornwell and Old Larimer St Tattoo.

As the world’s premier event for the 420 lifestyle, this year’s show has moved to the Denver Mart exhibition center, in recognition of the massive increase in delegates that the 2014 event has attracted. More than 30,000 people are expected to join the event, which celebrates all aspects of the lifestyle and related pursuits. This includes a hugely diverse mix of exhibitors, with products ranging from seeds to apparel to smoking products. For those looking to get tattooed at the event, the sector’s premier artists will be available, exhibiting their designs and providing consultations and tattooing services to attendees. The initiative is representative of the cutting edge approach that the BIG Industry Show, Galleria and the US Cannabis Cup have taken in previous years. Each year’s event has built on the success of the previous year, while surpassing it in terms of innovation and the range of products, activities and exhibitors available. Only a few tickets remain available for the 2014 event, so those wishing to attend are encouraged to book their places as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
