American Mensa Annual Gathering

Mensans don’t have conventions–we have gatherings. The Mensa Annual Gathering (AG) is the national U.S. Mensa convention held in a different city each year, usually in July. These gatherings give Mensa members from all over the country an opportunity to meet new friends, catch up with longtime friends, eat, drink, play games, and enjoy speakers and presentations to “tweak” your mind. A good AG always has something that appeals to mind, body, and soul.

The upcoming 2015 Annual Gathering will be held in Louisville, Kentucky:


July 1st to July 5th, 2015
in Louisville, Kentucky

Brimming with insightful programs, far-flung participants and playful exuberance, Mensa’s Annual Gathering provides an unmatched venue for our members to showcase their creativity and ingenuity. This Independence Day, we invite all Mensans to connect with friends — old and new — and let your Unbridled Spirit run wild in the Bluegrass State.

Home to the legendary Kentucky Derby horse race and the “most exciting two minutes in sports,” Louisville boasts more than just ponies and bourbon — though you’ll find plenty of both if those strike your fancy. The city is home to a full-time opera, orchestra, ballet and regional and professional theaters. Couple those with the Mellwood Arts Center and the Fraizer International History Museum and you’ll find that Kentucky’s largest city provides a captivating mix of history, culture and modernity.

Hard to believe, but the 2015 Annual Gathering: Unbridled Spirit is less than 120 days away. If you haven’t signed up yet, do it now, because registration rates increase by $15 on April 1.

The official hotel of the Kentucky Derby, the Galt House Hotel will serve as host for the 2015 Annual Gathering and Colloquium. With 1,300 well-appointed guest rooms and more than 128,000 square feet of meeting space, the hotel offers a wide array of lodging options while conveniently located in the heart of downtown Louisville. The Galt House hotel is officially full, and there are no more rooms available in our block. We expect rooms to open up in May and June when cancellations begin, but you can join the waiting list today by calling 800-843-4258or 502-589-5200.

So don’t miss out. Join Mensans from every generation as we descend upon Louisville July 1-5 for the 2015 Annual Gathering!
