Why attend The Bett Conference?

There are hundreds of reasons for attending The Bett Conference but let’s begin with the best news imaginable - this year, Ted Talk's most popular speaker Sir Ken Robinson returns with a special keynote speech!

British Educational Training and Technology Show has been helping transform education through technology for over thirty years. Without them, thousands of British school kids would probably be sat around one rusty ZX Spectrum instead of putting us adults to shame with their mad tech, creative and problem-solving skills!

And now, instead of creating just another brick in the wall, you can help shape the future by transforming the way we teach our kids through fun, creativity and technology...

We don't need no education!

Having enlightened, educated, inspired and amused back in 2015, the education world is on tenterhooks over what he has to say next after his monumental Ted Talk “Do schools kill creativity” garnered almost 13 million views...

Joining Sir Ken will be Heston Blumenthal, entrepreneur Imogen Heap, Anthony Salcito, Vice President of Worldwide Education at Microsoft and Abdul Chohan, of Essa Academy.

World partner, Microsoft will be delivering inspired content that will share next generation ideas and innovative, technology-led classroom practices trade stands, and Apple will be there too, amongst dozens of trade stands, seminars, Q&A sessions with leading thinkers and The Ministry of Science Live!

The theme this year is “Creative schools” - a grassroots revolution that’s transforming education and is sure to inspire teachers, parents and policymakers alike to rethink the real value and purpose of education. After all, as Sir Ken pointed out at Bett 2015, “Our job is not to teach the national curriculum, it’s to teach our children.”

In short:

  • Join like-minded fellows at education's best trade show
  • Hundreds of trade stands featuring Adobe, BBC, C4 Learning, 02 & Microsoft
  • Keynote speech from Sir Ken Robinson
  • Transform the way we educate at The Bett Conference
