WE ARE RETURNING TO BIRMINGHAM!

After successfully running two online events, we are excited to be returning to Birmingham for our first live show since 2019! Join us at the NEC, Birmingham on the 17th – 18th of November as we bring together the education community for two days of learning, networking and procuring.

Much like our previous shows, we will be welcoming some of the biggest names in education to share their advice, policy updates and insights. With over 50 hours of CPD-certified content, this is a must-attend event for leaders from schools, academies and MATs. Our leading platform will provide visitors with crucial guidance to help overcome the biggest challenges in the sector.

Are you an education supplier? If so, then our event provides a fantastic opportunity for you to gain brand exposure and meet with education leaders and decision-makers at the first major live education event of the year.

This is a must-attend event for senior leadership teams to discover practical advice and innovative solutions to overcome the most prominent obstacles in the Education Sector. We will be welcoming leading practitioners, experts and government officials to share their advice, policy updates and insights.

Also, our broad range of education suppliers will be showcasing their products and services, all aimed at improving pupil outcomes and the day-to-day running of educational institutions.

50+ HOURS OF CONTENT

Take advantage of our platform to hear practical insights and advice from over 50+ hours of CPD accredited content. You will have the opportunity to take away practical tips as we welcome some of the biggest names across the sector to share their advice. Topics will be focussed on the challenges that the sector faced before COVID-19, and the new issues that the pandemic has created.

HEAR POLICY UPDATES

Join the rest of the education community and be the first to hear the latest policy updates from leading government officials and policymakers. With key support from the Department for Education and the Education & Skills Funding Agency, you will have the chance to pose your pressing questions to their representatives who will be in attendance in our ‘Government Education Village’.

INSIGHTFUL CASE-STUDIES

Along with the rest of our broad range of content, we will also be welcoming leading practitioners to share their case-studies. This is a brilliant opportunity for you to gain knowledge from other educational institutions and take away advice to help improve pupil-outcomes. Also, education suppliers will be presenting case-studies to highlight how they have helped other schools, academies and MATs.

NETWORKING OPPORTUNITIES

Our show will attract over 4,000 education leaders and industry experts. We will be providing school leaders with the much-needed opportunity to share ideas and initiatives with each other throughout the show. For MAT leaders, our MAT Matchmaking Area will feature a wide range of intimate roundtable discussion groups around key areas that are affecting MATs.
