Speakers are also license holders that lend their experience and best practices to their peers for each session.

Attendance is exclusive to the above audience.

I don’t know my license number, but I am a licensed brand or retailer. Can I register?

Yes. Go ahead and register and enter “1234” for your license. As long as you and your company have an online presence that we can use to verify your identity, you will be approved.

Do I have to be pre-registered? What if I want to show up and register onsite?

Pre-registration is highly recommended. People that show up without a badge will have to register online at mjunpackedregister.com and wait until their registration is approved to access the floor MJ Unpacked is on.

Once approved, they will receive a text to pick up their badge on the 3rd floor of the New York Hilton Midtown. Access to the 3rd floor is open to badge holders, and confirmations only.

Will you mail me my badge?

We will mail badges to registrants in the USA that registered before the advance deadline of April 22, 2022.

Suite badge allotments can’t be increased. If your client, partner, investor, or guest, is qualified to attend MJ Unpacked, please contact your client success manager and they will provide you with options.

I'm an accredited investor, can I change my company name on my badge?

You were approved based on your investor status, not your company type. Badges cannot be altered once approved.

What is your cancellation policy?

There are no refunds on registration except in the case of bereavement, jury duty, military service, or medical emergency.

I’m an investor in Jage Media, and I want my client to get a badge.

Your client and/or portfolio company still needs to go through registration and the approval process in order to get a badge. We want you to make a return on your investment and the exclusivity of the event is core to our value proposition. Thank you for understanding.

MJ Unpacked App Questions

How do I log-in to the MJ Unpacked App?

You need your email address and registration number. If you forgot your registration number, you can find it here: https://mju22east.mapyourshow.com/8_0/login/login.cfm

Do I need the MJ Unpacked App?

The MJU app lets you browse our conference sessions and speakers, money stage pitch presenters, and our exhibitors. You can chat with, email and schedule meetings with other attendees through the app. You can also curate your event schedule, favorite products or services, and download exhibitor brochures for later consideration. It’s also where you’ll find our floor plans and receive notifications for mixer events and afternoon snack breaks.

I’d like to talk with a particular exhibitor but no one is at their showcase. Can you make an intro for me?

You can contact them through their profile in the MJU app. You can chat with them, email them, and request time on their calendar if they’re not already booked out.

How do I chat with other attendees and exhibitors?

We’re releasing chat functionality in the app 2 weeks before MJ Unpacked.

Log into the MJ Unpacked NYC app using your registered email address and registration number, click on the home screen tile labeled ‘Messages’ 

From there you’ll see a list of all attendees and exhibitors who are currently logged into the app. Select their name and chat with them!

You can search for specific people, companies, job titles, etc., as well.

You’ll also have an option to select a Chat Room with pre-selected business development topics. Click on the topic/chat room and join the conversation

What do I do if people are chatting with me too much?

You will have the ability to block users who over-communicate with you. There will be a tab labeled ‘Blocked Users’ when you select the home screen tile labeled ‘Messages’

I want to meet with one of the VCs/MSOs in a private business suite but I don’t have an appointment with them. What should I do?

You should check out their profile in the MJU app and see if they still have open meeting times for you to book an appointment with them. If there’s no availability remaining, go up to the fourth floor and talk to the suite host to see if they’re available to take a meeting with you.

Where can I find the floor plan(s)?

Our floor plans are located in the MJU app and through our digital directory.

There are QR codes on every booth and showcase but I’m not a tech-savvy person. Can you help?

QR codes can be scanned using the camera on your smartphone. The QR codes take you directly to the exhibitor or sponsor profile so you can chat, email and schedule meetings with them. If you don’t want to scan the QR codes, you can download the MJU app and browse through our alphabetized exhibitor list that way instead. If you need tech support onsite, head to the MJ Unpacked sales booth near the registration desk or find one of our event staff roaming the event and we’ll assist you.
