A little over 15 years ago, we came up with a crazy endeavor to do a multi-vendor event in front of one of our locations in West Palm Beach. It ended up being a great event, a few hundred people were there, but our main focus was to make this an experience-driven event.
The Great Smoke – Before the Pandemic
In February 2020, we were fortunate enough to host one of the biggest Great Smoke events ever. It was before the pandemic so there were almost 3,000 people there from all over the country. It was a 70’s themed event. It was an epic time for all parties involved if we do say so ourselves. Shortly after that, the COVID-19 pandemic hit America and the world. It was something unforeseen, never expected, and events began getting canceled all over the country.
The Great Smoke – After the Pandemic
The pandemic has been challenging for everyone, so our team had to come up with a deadline on what to do for the Great Smoke 2021. We were hard-pressed and did not want to cancel such a historic event. This event has been a part of Smoke Inn for so long that it is a staple in the “cigar-verse”. After many hours of deliberating, we came up with an idea. We decided to take on an endeavor that would most likely be one of the most historic endeavors ever attempted in our industry. On February 20th, 2021, we will take The Great Smoke to new heights by hosting an eight-hour virtual event. We created it to be like one you’ve never seen before.
The Virtual Experience
Our virtual event will not be in the typical Zoom fashion. It will be a whole experience. It will be more in the style and fashion of The Tonight Show. Imagine the Jerry Lewis Telethon meets QVC. We’ve created an eight-hour day, filled with interactive components. The Great Smoke 2021 will be fully produced by Showtek, the company behind the scenes at many major national broadcasts including The Golden Globes, The Kings of Comedy, and Soul Train. The show will feature manufacturers, sponsors, demonstrations, and live entertainment including musicians, comedians, and dancers. Attendees can also look forward to hourly raffles, giveaways, and attendee-only promotions and sales. It’s very hard to put into words what we’re trying to accomplish but we promise to try to do something that’s never been done before. It was very important for our team to figure out how we can do this.
TGS 2021 Exclusive Discounts
Furthermore, by purchasing a ticket to the Great Smoke Digital Experience, you will get a code on your invoice. This code will be used to access a very special portal throughout the event that will enable you to get incredible Great Smoke opportunities like cigar deals, epic packages, and some very special exclusive cigars made for us by some of the most epic manufacturers in the industry — Carlito Fuente, Pete Johnson, Steve Saka, Aganorsa Leaf, Perdomo cigars, just to name a few. There’s a very limited supply. When the tickets are gone, they’re gone.
Attending the Great Smoke 2021Without a Ticket
We will broadcast this event out to the world because we’re putting such hard work into this. We want everybody to see this epic historic event that we’re trying to do. Without a package, you will not be able to participate in the same way, but you will be able to log on, enjoy yourself and make purchases from the Smoke Inn website. It is important to secure your package so you’ll have the opportunity to be fully interactive during the event. We also want you to take advantage of some extremely special offerings that will only be available for those who have purchased tickets to the Great Smoke 2021.
Don’t miss your opportunity to be part of what we expect to be one of the most historic virtual cigar events ever to tap into the cigar industry. Head over to TheGreatSmoke.com to purchase your ticket and get your party in a box now. [/av_textblock]
