NETWORK AND MEET WITH SCHOOL LEADERS IN OUR INTIMATE AND INTERACTIVE ROUNDTABLES!

After its introduction in 2019, the MAT Matchmaking Area is returning to provide the Schools & Academies Show with a dedicated space on the exhibition floor for highly topical and interactive roundtable meetings and discussions.

Sponsored by AQA, this exciting feature on the show floor requires visitors to pre-book roundtables which they would like to join throughout the two days of the event. These dedicated roundtables will then take place within the MAT Matchmaking Area where participants take part in in-depth and practical discussions with like-minded peers and organisations.

You can view all of the roundtable topics below and book on to each session by clicking on the register button. Please ensure to join these sessions as they have limited capacity.
