Ready to Be Back in Vegas: Join Us!

The cannabis industry is changing — and so is the Vegas cannabis conference experience.

Last year was the first year in about a decade that we were not in Las Vegas for the biggest cannabis conference of the year. Our days at MJBizCon hearken back to the early days at the Rio when the show — and the industry — was in its infancy. We’re looking forward to being back on the ground and hope to see you there. This year, though, we’ll be holding court at the opposite end of the strip at the first live conference of MJ Unpacked.

Quality over Quantity in Your Cannabis Conference Experience:

If you’re looking for a more intimate, curated Vegas experience, MJ Unpacked will deliver quality over quantity.

MJ Unpacked is a first-of-its-kind event exclusively for cannabis CPG brand and retail executives and accredited investors.  Everyone gets qualified as manager level or above so the right people are in the room.

It will be held at the Mandalay Bay in Vegas, October 21-22 and we will be able to meet with you in our space there starting on Wednesday, October 20. This is the same week as MJBizCon. Actually, one of the founders, George Jage, of MJ Unpacked was the one who built MJBizCon, so they know how to create best-in-class events….and this one is over the top.

The event is designed to have the productivity of an executive conference with adequate soft, comfortable seating to facilitate conversations not badge scans. It has the discovery of a trade show with brands on display with the feel of a retail store. The conference program is hyper-focused on high-level retail & brand pain points with real operators with proven success stories. A number of the most active VCs will have investor suites as part of the event floor and scores of investors will be onsite including our Canna Advisors suite.  They also have foosball tables, a bar, local musicians, and a gong.

To top it all off, they are hosting a live benefit concert featuring the Blues Brothers at the House of Blues with 100% of the net going to Last Prisoner Project.
