The Schools & Academies Show takes place bi-annually in April at the ExCeL, London and in November at the NEC, Birmingham. Collectively both shows attract over 8,000 attendees from Schools, Academies, MATs, Local Authorities, Central Government and the wider education sector.
Through a combination of pioneering speakers, policymakers, interactive roundtables, innovative features, best-practice case studies and much more, our shows aim to provide senior leadership teams with expert guidance, practical advice and leading solutions on how best to overcome their school’s biggest challenges.

At our last show we were joined by thousands of education professionals, exhibitors, expert speakers and practitioners from across the UK! Our main aim was to uncover the day-to-day challenges faced across the education sector and reveal the plans for a brighter future for pupils and education professionals across the country.
After seven years as a one day show, the event returned offering a two-day format allowing school leaders more dedicated content, the opportunity to choose one or two days to attend, more innovative suppliers and a wide array of new and exciting features aiming to further the conversation around a change in the education sector.
Take a look at our highlights of 2019!
