Registration is open for the mmc2015 conference and exhibition

Commercial Workshops

Great training, and they are free to attend

mmc2015 will continue the acclaimed programme of special "hands-on" workshops. They enable the visitor to learn more about the practical details of the conference topics and microscopy in general.

The workshops will all take place on the exhibition floor in the four workshop theatres from Tuesday 30 June - Thursday 2 July. Each session will run for approx 45 minutes.

Workshops are FREE for all visitors at mmc2015 to attend. You won’t need to pre-register, just make sure you turn up on time to ensure you have a seat.

Interested in booking a workshop?

Workshops are only available to exhibiting companies. More details and the workshop booking form are available by clicking here.

Already presenting a workshop?

Please find details below for hosting your workshop(s) at mmc2015:

  • Each workshop theatre will have a plasma screen and laptop included. Please bring your presentation on a USB stick. We will supply power and VGA leads as standard for all connections between laptops and screens/projectors. Please note that if you intend to bring your own Mac to connect to the plasma or projector screens you will need to bring your own VGA adapter cable that will convert the signal from Mac to VGA which is specific to the model being used. It would also be a good idea, to bring your own power lead as we do not carry spare Mac accessories on site.
  • Along with a workshop programme booklet included in the delegate bags and in the exhibition hall, the workshop theatres will have a programme of the sessions that day available for delegates to view.
  • You will have the opportunity to scan the badges of the attendees to your session using a lead scanner available in the theatre. A steward will be available at the beginning of the session to ensure you know how to use it.
  • The data from the lead scanners will include delegate names and email addresses and be sent to you via email after mmc2015. 

If you have any questions, please contact Chloe Goode.
