MJ Unpacked, the only national cannabis trade event exclusively for brand and retail executives and accredited investors, will return to the Empire State at the New York Hilton Midtown on April 26th to the 28th with a fresh new look through a strategic partnership with ABC Brand/Design — a brand strategy and design agency based in Los Angeles.

Jage Media, producers of MJ Unpacked, have held three cannabis CPG and investor events thus far. Expected attendance is 3,000 highly curated delegates. The event features two distinct conference programs: the main conference designed for operators, and a venture summit exclusively for investors, fund managers and family offices.

The Brand Experience Hall will showcase leading cannabis brands from across the entire U.S. cannabis ecosystem, alongside select industry suppliers relevant to the licensed operators.

“The approach to the event design is to have the feel of an executive conference and the discovery of a trade event,” noted co-founder George Jage. “This is a challenging time for the industry, but with the excitement surrounding expansion on the east coast, this is expected to be a sellout event.”
