ALGIM Workshops

Our webinars let you learn at your desk, and our conferences provide extensive looks into a wide range of topics, but what if you need to get together with your colleagues for a day and look at one topic in-depth?

That's why we provide a range of one-day workshops that will go into depth on the topics that matter to you.
