LAS VEGAS–A first-of-its-kind trade show is headed to Las Vegas this October. MJ Unpacked is a consumer packaged goods expo for cannabis products planned for the Mandalay Bay Hotel’s convention center. Organizers hope the event will drive business and connect supplies with capital.

George Jage, CEO of Jage Media which is producing the event, said he created the trade show to
“foster a community of brands and retailers and provide them the space and resources to thrive.”

“Large pan-industry events can be very dilutive on people’s return on objectives,” Jage added. “Our event requires all attendees to be qualified to create an executive summit environment where people can connect with other decision makers to get deals done, not just exchange business cards.”

A layer of exclusivity has been added to the event. Organizers are limiting registration to cannabis retail and brand executives with the title manager and above and accredited investors. They’re also limiting exhibit spaces. Cannabis retailers can attend the event for free.

The trade show is scheduled for Oct. 21-22. Registration and details are at
