Is this a consumption event?

There is no sampling on the event floor of THC-containing products.

How do I become a speaker at your events?

Our Call for Guest Speakers is currently open for our Detroit event, and we look forward to your submission.

Each session in our conference program is highly curated by a committee of license holders from different markets to address current pain points and needs.

Our audience consists of cannabis license-holder executives and accredited investors. The conference committee selects speakers based on the solutions and experience they can provide our audience in concert with the community’s needs. Sessions at MJ Unpacked are typically panel discussions that address retail and brand pain points, and high-level market opportunities for investors.

The committee will not select speakers motivated to sell their services or products from the stage. MJ Unpacked does not subscribe to a “pay to play” model, and speakers aren’t compensated.

Can I get a list of exhibitors and attendees?

We do not sell, rent or distribute lists of any kind to anyone.  Registered delegates (exhibitors, sponsors, and attendees) can download the MJ Unpacked app and reach out to, connect with, and schedule appointments with one another.

Can I host, sponsor, promote, or publish external hospitality functions during the event?

Clients agree not to host, sponsor, promote, or publish any external hospitality function that conflicts with any programming or networking events that are produced by Event Management and part of the official Event schedule.  This is not to impede any small group events but to avoid Clients holding large functions that are in conflict with official hospitality events.  Failure to comply may result in loss of exhibit space, sponsorship status, or event access.  Please contact our sales team to explore our bespoke hospitality service offerings.

Currently, I only sell hemp (or Delta 8). But I’m in a State that expects to pass adult-use shortly. Can I attend?

Please email [email protected] with your details. They are making exceptions for companies in States like yours. 

Who produces MJ Unpacked?

MJ Unpacked is produced by Jage Media – a veteran team of B2B event producers and business media. You may have heard of George Jage. He was president of Marijuana Business Daily/ MJ Biz Con from 2014 – 2017 and CEO of Dope Magazine.

I registered as an accredited investor in NYC or LV, why can't I get in now?

Sadly, an inordinate amount of people who registered as accredited investors were consultants that were selling to our exhibitors. If you truly are an angel investor please reach out to [email protected].

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?

Registration is non-refundable. All Event registration sales are final and non-refundable unless the Event is canceled by JMI. Exceptions will be made for medical emergencies, bereavement, and military service with documentation.

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.
