Bett 2020, the global meeting place for the education community

The 36th edition of Bett takes place on 22-25 January 2020 at the ExCeL London – and with an expanded offer of show features and content, it is an unmissable date in the global EdTech event calendar.

What’s new at Bett 2020?

Advancing education is what Bett is all about. The show will once again be providing a platform to push the sectoral conversation further. Over 34,000 educators and leaders from the UK and overseas will be there, ready to engage with more than 800 EdTech suppliers, SMEs, and start-ups. What’s more, Bett has arranged a line-up of 300 of the most influential figures in teaching and learning today.

An unrivalled guest speaker agenda

The educators, leaders, and EdTech pioneers you need to hear from are coming exclusively to Bett this year. Bett prides itself on giving visitors the chance to hear from those changing the way we think about education and technology – and that’s exactly what the show is offering in 2020.

The Education Show at Bett

For the first time in Bett’s history, the Education Show will be fully integrated inside the event in the North Hall. Hundreds of suppliers will be there, showcasing the products essential for the health and wealth of educational institutions around the world. Bett will also be offering accredited CPD-led sessions, covering a wide range of topics on educators’ needs in the brand-new Education Show Theatre, for a complete picture of modern education.

Six new inspirational content themes

Bett 2020 has introduced six new themes to structure the conference programme, ensuring every learner and educator can benefit from this year’s content. They include: Innovation; Wellbeing; Empowering Teaching & Learning; Inclusion, Social Mobility and SEND; Future Tech and Trends; Skills

The newly appointed Advisory Board, made up of the industry experts, has steered content in the right direction: “Bett provides a hub to connect together like-minded and engaged educators around technology,” says Advisory Board member, Jon Audin of the University of Winchester. “Once a year, everything that you need around the field of EdTech and its use can be found under one roof.”

Expanding Bett’s CPD offer

Teacher and leader development is essential to what Bett is all about. With this in mind, the event’s programme of educator-led sessions has been expanded. In 2020, visitors will benefit from a diverse range of peer-to-peer learnings, insights and expertise. The show has also invested in fresh CPD-focussed features, including the launch of the Professional Development Theatres, offering free workshops to educators of all levels.

Better navigation for a higher return on time

Bett is busy. Very busy. Getting a strong return on your time is vitally important.

It will be easy to navigate around Bett 2020. The floorplan has been simplified, making it simple to find the solutions, products and partners you want to see, have better, productive conversations, and take back better technology and learnings to your schools.

  • The Education Show
  • Equipment & hardware

  • Learning Tech
  • Global Showcase

Further networking opportunities at Bett

Bett 2020 will have more networking opportunities onsite, with a Staff Room for educators to have space to discuss the content sessions they’ve experienced and reflect upon what’s inspired them.

On top of this, the Connect@Bett networking app will enable visitors to set up meetings with relevant exhibitors and fellow educators to help them maximise their time
