LOS ANGELES, Nov. 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — The BIG Industry Show and High Times Business have announced a unique partnership that will change the shape of the booming 420 industry in the US. The companies will come together to present the tenth anniversary BIG Industry Show at the Los Angeles Convention Center in California on January 19-20, 2017.
In a historic move for the industry, Buyers Industry Guide (BIG) will be connecting its vast network of wholesale buyers and producers of 420 products with High Times Business’ investors and business professionals. Many of those individuals and corporations are eager to tap into the rapidly expanding market, which is becoming more attractive to big business by the day. In fact, since proposed measures have passed on Election Day on November 8, 2016, nearly 25% of all US citizens will be able to use marijuana recreationally.
The innovative new partnership between BIG and High Times Business is already bearing fruit, with the 2017 BIG Industry Show delivering the first wholesale buying event of the year and the first after the new legalization measures expected in early November. While building on the shows held over the past decade by BIG and on the High Times Business summit held in 2015, the 2017 event is set to far surpass expectations, reflecting the pace and dynamism of this expanding industry.
Data from ArcView Market Research has revealed that the legal cannabis market is expected to reach $6.7 billion in revenue in 2016 and $21.8 billion by 2020. Its growth is creating huge business opportunities and the partnership between the BIG Industry Show and High Times Business is about meeting those opportunities head on. Both already run outstanding events and together they will be setting the stage for much bigger things.
The 2017 BIG Industry Show is a must-attend event for anyone interested in doing business in the 420 industry. The four main pillars of the event – smoke, glass, vaping and growing – will connect wholesalers, suppliers and artists with buyers and investors from across the US at the perfect time in the country’s still-unfolding legalization process. The event’s location in California, as the country’s most populous state, will allow unique access to the largely untapped local market, as well as that in the wider US.
