Returning on 25th November…

After the huge success of the 2014 show, we are delighted to announce that The Academies Show Birmingham will be returning to the NEC, Birmingham, on 25th November 2015.

The Academies Show is the largest UK event dedicated to the academies agenda, bringing together thousands of Head Teachers, School Business Managers, Bursars, Governors, and more, with more than 200 leading education suppliers.

This provides the perfect environment for school leaders and buyers, and private providers the chance to meet, engage and discuss the challenges the sector is currently facing and how to overcome them. With over 4,400 academy schools open, and counting, an ever increasing number of schools are gaining financial autonomy and are looking for support as well as cost effective and efficient solutions to help manage day-to-day school functions whilst supporting school improvement.

As the leading event of its kind, the show is well established as the MUST-ATTEND event of the year for senior school leaders and buyers.

The 2014 Show Highlights

2014 Regional Breakdown


We’ve had a fabulous day, I feel for the people not doing food because we have quite an easy time, we’ve shown people the ripency of real food and we’ve shown people the power of what we do. What I always find at The Academies Show is people’s enthusiasm, they want to know what we do and we enjoy that. The amount of people that come to the event shows the importance of the Show, and without a doubt, of all the exhibitions this is probably the most key event for us. We get a lot of business from the Show and more than that, we meet great people, we have a great time and we’re selling, it doesn’t get better than that.
This is our sixth time at The Academies Show and it’s probably the busiest show we’ve had to date. We’ve had a good quality number of people across the stand today including Head Teachers and School Business Managers and it’s an event we’ll be looking to take part in again in the future. We’ve got some good thoughts about how we can use the show to develop our customer base going forward so a really positive day for us.  
Today’s event has been very successful for Ricoh, we’ve opened a number of new opportunities and we’ve seen a lot of our current customers and from the success of this we’re looking forward to the next Academies Show in London.

The Academies Show is a wonderful way to showcase your products, we’ve had an excellent response today, the leadway must be well over 100 leads and that’s all down to the organisation of the Show and I’ll be honest, it’s a fantastic day, the quality of the leads is immense and I would recommend anybody to come to The Academies Show and showcase their products.
