DESCRIPTION: Europe’s largest and most prestigious showcase for the latest developments in Information and Communications Technology (ICT) for Education. BETT is the launch platform for the latest products and Government announcements concerning this sector.



‘Take hold of the future’ is the theme surrounding BETT 2005 ( 12th-15th January 2005) as 550+ exhibitors, hundreds of world-class speakers and thousands of ICT coordinators, subject teachers and school leaders converge on London’s Olympia Exhibition Centre for Europe’s largest and most prestigious education technology event of the year.

A whole host of attractions will be back by popular demand – including The Special Needs Village, F1 in Schools Challenge, Policy in Practice area and the comprehensive four-day Seminar Programme – alongside a healthy selection of brand new features to catch the eye.

New for 2005!
Launching at BETT 2005 is Teachers’ TV, the first television channel for people who work in schools. Funded by the DfES, but editorially independent, it will feature innovative teaching ideas, classroom resources and education news. Broadcast on cable, satellite and Freeview, Teachers’ TV will also be supported by an extensive website.

The Broadcasting theme will continue through to the Create at BETT feature, where students will unleash the power of digital video, conduct live interviews, edit footage and work to tight deadline to file daily reports on the Show.

Another must-see feature making its debut at BETT 2005 will be Innovations. Brought to you by NESTA Future Lab, this area of the show will offer a tantalising look into the future, showing teachers the type of resources they will be working with in 5-10 years time. 12 exemplar research and development projects will be showcased on a major stand in the National Hall Gallery, with a live demonstration programme running throughout each day.

BETT has become far more than just another exhibition. It is the pivotal event around which the entire educational ICT industry plans its year. The future of education can be discovered at BETT 2005 – just make sure you’re there to see it!
