Brainiacs from all over the world have gathered in Bratislava, where international organisation Mensa is holding its European Mensa Annual Gathering (EMAG) conference at the historical parliament building on Wednesday, July 31. Mensa represents an organisation of bright people, with the only qualification for membership being an IQ higher than 130.
“Approximately 350-400 people are expected to show up,” Mensa Slovensko Council Vice-Chair Hana Dojčanová told the TASR newswire. The conference will run until Sunday, August 4, with visitors able looking forward to lectures, workshops, cultural sightseeing tours as well as excursions to Slovak companies.
Since 2008, EMAG is organised in a different location every year. "Mensa Slovensko celebrates the 20th anniversary of its founding this year. We attempt to build up a good reputation for our country and thus decided to organise EMAG in Slovakia this year," Dojčanová said.
As part of the conference, Mensa will hold free-of-charge IQ tests for public on Friday, between 13:00-17:00 in the historical building of parliament in Župné Square.
