MJ Unpacked – The Focused, Intimate & Exclusive Event for Cannabis Brands & Retailers

October is a big month for cannabis. For starters, it’s Croptober. In case you’re in the dark on that one, Croptober is the harvest season for outdoor cannabis growers when the vast majority of sun-grown cannabis starts to enter the market. Beyond that, two of the most influential events in the industry are scheduled to go down in Las Vegas.

First, you’ve got the classic, yet cumbersome MJBizCon. If you’ve never been, it is seriously crazy. There are seemingly thousands of booths with everything from hvac, apparel producers and security, to packaging, lighting, nutrients and all things in between. Within a couple of hours, you can become blind to all of the booth signage, your feet get tired, and all you can think about is if you have an “in” at the premiere party that evening. It can be a great show, but it can also be a big blur that costs your company a decent chunk of budget to attend and/or exhibit.

Thankfully, for wholesale cannabis producers and their retail counterparts, this year and for the first time, we have an exciting alternative to the status quo – MJ Unpacked. As they describe it, “the first cannabis event of its kind that places passionate cannabis retailers, THC CPG brands, and accredited investors at the center of it all.”

Removing all the ancillary noise and focusing specifically on brands and retailers is one of the reasons why we’ve chosen to partner with and exhibit at MJ Unpacked this year. What’s more, the environment with its soft seating, meeting areas, brand showcases, brands-only mixers, retail-only mixers, and open floor layout just sounds so much more appealing than what we’ve encountered in years past.

You’ll also be able to gain fresh perspectives and get new ideas from leaders in the brands and retailer space or hear what the latest is around investment in our industry via the General Sessions and Investor Presentations.

Moreover, because it’s happening the same week as MJBizCon, you can still hit all the fantastic parties and after-hours fun. Further, MJ Unpacked has secured the Blue Brothers – yes, that’s right Aykroyd and Belushi – to play a show benefiting the Last Prisoner Project, so you can have a blast and support one of the worthiest causes in the cannabis industry – win win. 

If you’re looking for something more intimate, focused and exclusive than the Chaos at the Convention Center, head on over to MJ Unpacked at the Mandalay Bay on October 21-22. Oh, and retailers are free, so if you’ll be in Vegas already, swing by – you’ve got nothing to lose and everything to gain.
