Bett’s back. For four days, London’s ExCeL will be packed with the crème de la crème of technology and innovation across the length and breadth of the education sector. From seminars to startups, Bett is an opportunity for attendees to immerse themselves in all things educational and for brands to showcase their latest innovations to the industry. Here are the top four reasons why Bett isn’t one to miss this year:
Where education meets cutting-edge tech, magic happens, and nowhere is this more apparent than in the thriving education startup scene. A great example of this is Century Tech, a UK AI startup which has already started rolling out its software-based tech in schools in Belgium earlier this year. Nimble - and prepared for rapid growth - startups are at the vanguard of tech, often leading the way for larger companies to follow suite and education is no different. Bett is a great opportunity to catch a glimpse of what could be in store for the future education sector.
This year’s show is jam-packed with speakers, seminars and CPD opportunities. In previous years, Brian Cox, Bob Geldof and others have graced the stage to deliver the keynote speech followed by a diverse series of talks and discussions throughout the four days open to everyone attending. Explore the programme here.
Bett 2020 is expecting some 34,000 attendees from 146 countries, making it a hotbed for interesting discussions and new connections. Teachers, leaders, manufacturers and media are all present, which makes it a challenge to leave Bett without having a few interesting discussions along the way!
Tech in action
With six new dedicated areas - Learning Tech, Teaching Tech, Equipment and Hardware, Global Showcase, Management Solutions and Education Show, Bett 2020 is going to be full to the brim with the latest educational solutions. From small startups to tech giants, you’ll be able to see demonstrations and get hands-on with some cutting-edge edtech. You’ll be able to find us at stand SC50, exhibiting our latest projection technology built for the contemporary classroom. Our Education Solutions series is equipped with One-Click Connect to enable a whole class to wirelessly screencast their devices at the click of a button, encouraging greater participation and boosting in-class collaboration.
The world of education is moving faster than ever before, creating a market filled with interesting and original solutions which have the potential to transform the entire sector. Furthermore, earlier this year the UK Government announced a strategy to invest heavily in education technology as part of its wider education plan, so there has never been a better time to be in this exciting industry. See you there!
