Registration open to attend the exciting mercury workshops of the Virtual ICMGP 2022!


Workshop Registration is now closed

The EXCO of the ICMGP 2022 is proud to announce that the upcoming Workshops taking place during the week prior to the ICMGP 2022 Conference, will be offered at no cost to all registered delegates attending the Conference. Your participation at these Workshops is proudly sponsored as part of a Conference Grant awarded by South Africa’s National Research Foundation.

Apart from being free, the next best part about the workshops is that its virtual nature will allow you to interact with your Workshop presenters via the chat boxes and also by posting questions during the presentations, thereby making the interactive portion of these workshops much more robust! These Workshops are taking place over three (3) days, not just one day!

All registered ICMGP 2022 Conference delegates are requested to indicate their desire to attend the workshops. Please see the Workshop Programme below to identify which of the offerings will fit your schedule. Kindly select the Workshops you wish to attend by ticking the box/es, in order of preference, when registering your participation www.ilmexhibitions.com/mercury2022/workshops-registration/. Please DO NOT oversubscribe to Workshops. Even though we do not face physical space limitations, we do have limits to the number of individuals who can attend due to bandwidth limitations or the number of attendees instructors can comfortably accommodate without being overwhelmed when questions arise.

We are excited, and hope you are too, as this allows for greater opportunities for everyone to attend the Workshop(s) of their choice.

The workshop Lead Presenter will contact you, a week before the Workshop date, to share more details of the workshop and any information that you may require to participate in the workshop.

Enjoy, learn and inform as the ICMGP organizers once again provide interactive workshop opportunities.
