Last week Claire, Christina and Alison attended The Bett Show at London’s Excel centre. This annual trade show is the world’s largest edtech fair, featuring over 850 companies, and over 34,000 attendees. It’s an opportunity for people from the education sector to get together and see the latest innovation in technology /attend seminars and generally be inspired and share ideas. For us at Atwood Tate, it was a good opportunity to say hello to our clients in the education and keep abreast of any changes in the industry.
On Friday we had the chance to visit the BETT show and find out what the future of education holds. Being held at Excel this year, it was large exhibition with a great variety of exhibitors and colours. A nice blend of educational publishing companies, technological innovations and inspiring developments. A lot of fascinating interactive educational platforms, games and products that took us back in time to revisit the early school years to see how much has changed and to see how much fun learning truly is.
Throughout the BETT show, there were presentations and activities including a very animated robot, keeping everyone entertained. As we visited the stands, including: Hodder Education, SAGE, GL Assessment, Oxford University Press, Express Publishing, Macmillan Education to name a few, we were greeted with enthusiasm and the teams were happy to share their knowledge about the latest innovations. A big thanks to all our clients for taking the time to speak to us!
BETT has a great range of seminars so there’s lots of background reading you can do if you weren’t able to get there, and there are Highlights videos and a blog.
Here are some useful links to keep up to speed:
