Exhibitor Manual

The mmc2015 Exhibitor Manual is now available for all confirmed exhibitors. Here you will find useful booking forms for stand extras, electrics, AV, accommodation, parking and much more.

Commerical Workshops

mmc2015 exhibitors are invited to present a workshop(s) during the congress.

The topic of choice is left up to the presenter, and could include anything from a customer based review, a product launch, or a new technique you would like to promote. 

Workshops are in 4 different theatres on the exhibition floor, each theatre seating approx 30-35 delegates at any one time. AV is provided in each of the theatres, along with a lead scanner feeding back delegate data to the presenter after mmc2015. A session runs for 45 minutes and costs £100 +VAT. RMS corporate members are entitled to one session free of charge. 

View the workshop timetable for available sessions here, and book a workshop session here.


Accommodation can be booked through the approved agent Reservation Highway. To book your accommodation please click here. Please note that Reservation Highway is the ONLY approved booking agent for mmc2015.

We have been made aware that companies such as Exhibition Housing Services, Exhibition Housing Management and Trade Show Housing have been contacting exhibitors to offer reduced booking rates. These companies have NOT been approved by the mmc2015 organisers and it is believed that they take an immediate percentage of the payment and have very inflexible cancellation policies. If you have any enquiries about where to book your accommodation, please contact Chloe Goode.

SPAM emails

It has come to our attention that our exhibitors may have been targeted with a spam email recently.

The sender ‘Rebecca Sloan []‘ is in no way affiliated with the Royal Microscopical Society or mmc2015. 

Please refrain from responding or sending your information to this person.

The RMS do not send any delegate data to exhibitors prior to an event. Details of those attendees who wish to share their contact details, will be available post event.
