The European Mensa Annual Gathering (EMAG) is the largest Mensa event in Europe. It was introduced in 2008, has taken place each year in summer since then, and usually spans 5 days from Wednesday to Sunday. Each day offers several parallel tracks of events and lectures. Between 300 and 550 Mensans attended the previous EMAGs.
