The Academies Show gave us the opportunity to hear interesting speakers on relevant topics pertinent to schools. We were also able to speak to new service providers.
Very enjoyable event. Met and listened to many key speakers and product providers. Good networking opportunities and fantastic source of alternative providers.
The Academies Show was an excellent opportunity to get up to date information in my area of specialism, get a greater understanding of academies and how they work and an opportunity to see some excellent products and services.
All members of the SLT need to experience the Academies show to see what is on offer.
The exhibitions covered a wide range of products which were high quality and covered a wide range of educational requirements. I have, since, purchased products as a result of seeing these exhibitions and presentations at the Academies Show which I was previously unaware of but will drastically improve efficiency whilst reducing teacher workload in my school. What a result!
We are not an academy but still find a day spent here is a day spent well. I have never come away feeling my time has been wasted and always pick up on new initiatives, innovations and good practice.
A useful source of potential suppliers, opportunity to check out other options and to discuss services without intense sales pitch.
