Hospitality is a mainstay at Mensa events — a conveniently located, bustling ballroom serving as a rallying point, a spot to grab some quick nosh between speaker sessions, and a banquet hall each evening.
Hospitality at World Gathering 2021 will be open 24 hours and features several meals (five breakfasts, four lunches, and three dinners), snacks during all non-meal times, and a selection of beer and wine.
The World Gathering Mensa Makers Market is a forum for Mensans to display and sell books and handcrafted items — anything from hand-painted wooden eggs and handcrafted jewelry to photographs and calligraphy.
