Although we hope to return to face-to-face events eventually, we have decided to keep MRS conferences virtual for the foreseeable future. We’ll keep you tuned into some of the most energetic and effective new thinking, all from the safety and comfort of your chosen location.

There are many benefits of going virtual, including:
  • Eliminated cost of travel and accommodation
  • Reduced carbon footprint
  • Less logistical planning
  • Opens to a wider, global audience
  • No limitations on the number of attendees
  • Easily download conference content after the event
Foster new relationships 

MRS Virtual Conferences are totally interactive. Connect with other delegates from around the globe through private chat, scheduled video meetings and randomised speed networking. You’ll also have the opportunity to put your questions to our speakers in live Q&As after every session.
