Technology Leaders

Why Should Technology Leaders Attend The Schools & Academies Show?

The Schools & Academies Show will provide Technology Leaders with the chance to network with like-minded peers, meet leading education suppliers, hear from leading policymakers and school professionals and learn from best practice case studies.

We understand that the role of a Technology Leader can be very time-consuming, so having the time to source, meet and test out suppliers can often be an overlooked task.  By attending the Schools & Academies Show, Technology Leaders will have the chance to not only meet these requirements but benefit from the exclusive discounts and offers provided by suppliers at the event.

By registering for a free ticket today, all Technology Leaders will benefit from dedicated seminars and presentations taking place across the two days, scroll down to have a look at some of our key speakers and must-attend seminars.
