California show tipped to be biggest and best yet!

Summary: The 10th Anniversary BIG Industry Show will take place at the Los Angeles Convention Center on January 19-20, 2017. This show will provide a unique forum for connecting investors and new businesses in the fields of smoke, glass, vaping and growing.


Having already conquered Las Vegas, Denver and Miami, the BIG Industry Show is heading to California for the first time in 2017 for its most spectacular event yet. The 10th anniversary show will take place at the Los Angeles Convention Center on January 19-20, 2017.

Presented by Buyers Industry Guide, the BIG Industry Show is one of the most hotly anticipated events each year for business professionals with an interest in the 420 industry. Delivered in partnership with the High Times Business Summit, the show will feature four events in one, with sections focused around smoke, glass, vaping and growing.

The first wholesale buying event of the year, the BIG Industry Show offers more than 100,000 square feet of exhibitors, seminars and information for investors, as well as exclusive networking opportunities for all those in the industry.
California is the perfect place to host this exciting business to business event. Residents’ attitude to Proposition 64, which relates to the legalization of marijuana for personal use, have shifted significantly in the past few years. In 2010, Proposition 19 (the last legalization measure) was rejected by 53.5% of voters. However, a new USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times poll has found that 58% of voters now back Proposition 64, with the ballot due to take place on November 8.

The 2017 BIG Industry Show will feature anyone who’s anyone in the smoke industry. Also part of the event is Galleria Glass Art Exhibition, which showcases some of the most talented glass blowing artists from around the world, with stunning high end creations blown specifically for sale at the show. Meanwhile, the Vaporize Expo will present training sales clinics and world class suppliers who are at the forefront of innovation in the booming vape industry. Finally, Horticulture 360° will offer agriculture, art, science, technology, and all other business-related elements of plant cultivation.

High Times Business will be providing educational seminars and information for investors and business professionals looking to break into the vast opportunities offered by the California market as part of its second business summit. It will also have a number of booths available on the tradeshow floor for companies to exhibit at. The event follows the highly successful inaugural High Times Business Summit in Washington D.C. in December 2015, which embraced and united the fields of politics, medicine and entrepreneurship.

The BIG Industry Show 2017 will provide a unique forum for connecting investors and new businesses to this massive industry. According to ArcView Market Research, the legal cannabis market is expected to be worth $21.8 billion in total annual sales by 2020, making it bigger than the National Football League (NFL). In 2016, legal cannabis sales are expected to reach $6.7 billion (by way of comparison, the NFL saw $12 billion in revenue last year).

Buyer pre-registration for the 2017 BIG Industry Show is now open. Pre-registered buyers will receive $420 in vouchers to spend at the show.
