Update on COVID-19 and the Schools & Academies Show

Due to the restrictions and general uncertainty following regional lockdowns, the Schools & Academies Show Birmingham 2020 will take place online. Plus, to provide all stakeholders with more time to access the exceptional content, leading suppliers and hear from the pioneering speakers at the show, we will be extending the length of the event to Tuesday 17th November- Friday 20th November (originally 18th & 19th November). 

All of the visitors that have registered will automatically be transferred to the Schools & Academies Show Online 2020 and provided login details to our new, innovative virtual event platform; SwapCard, closer to the show dates. Registration to the show is completely free for those working in Schools, MATs, Colleges, Universities, Local and Central Government and Charities. Private Sector registrations will be on application only and allocated closer to the dates of the show. 

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 we had previously cancelled the London version of the Schools & Academies Show, which was due to take place on 29th & 30th April at ExCeL, London and then later postponed to 29th & 30th September at ExCeL, London. As such, due to the huge demand for the event in Birmingham to take place in any format, we feel this solution provides all stakeholders with the best outcome. 

The Schools & Academies Show has been a staple in the education calendar for the past decade and is an important event for school leaders and suppliers to meet, network and overcome the challenges they face in the successful running of their school. At this time, more than any before, we believe that ensuring the event runs successfully is essential and as such, we expect the new date will provide the opportunity for visitors and exhibitors to still benefit from the outcomes of the event.
