MJ Unpacked, the largest national cannabis event exclusively for industry professionals, is returning to Atlantic City from April 9-11 with hopes of setting a bold course to propel the cannabis industry forward.
This landmark third year on the East Coast sees an expanded program with dedicated areas for licensed cultivators and cannabis research professionals, alongside innovative expo focus areas: Brand Central, the Garden and the Lab. The event will cater to over 3,000 delegates with tracks in Brands/Retail, Cultivation Science and Investing/Finance.
Scheduled to take place at the vibrant Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City, MJ Unpacked is known for its distinct emphasis on cannabis consumer packaged goods brands and retailers. Attendance will remain exclusive to licensed cannabis operators, investors and fund managers, and now will include professionals who are actively working to advance cultivation and cannabis research.
“Cultivators have always been a cornerstone of the CPG market,” George Jage, co-founder and CEO of MJ Unpacked, said. “Recognizing their unique agricultural needs, we are enhancing our support for this vital industry segment. After all, without growers, the cannabis industry simply would not exist. At MJ Unpacked, we offer unparalleled access for cultivators to meet brands as raw material suppliers and for retailers dealing in finished products. Our specially curated tracks are designed to foster peer-to-peer knowledge sharing, focusing on advances in genetics, technology and established processes.”
“The Lab expo area and science speaking track aims to bridge the gap between cannabis science advancements and their commercial applications,” Kim Jage, co-founder and chief marketing officer of MJ Unpacked, said. “In established industries, scientific progress often fuels commercial ventures, which then reinvest in further research. With cannabis research set for significant growth upon rescheduling, it is crucial to connect researchers with the broader industry to fully unleash the cannabis plant’s potential.”
MJ Unpacked continues to offer its signature experiential design, featuring the ceremonial gong to celebrate closed deals, ample lounges and seating areas designed to facilitate transactional success, and an official afterparty hosted by FareChild Events.
