The Education Forum is back for 2017, organised specifically for senior professionals who are directly responsible for the purchasing of education technology, facilities, services and solutions for their institution.
Taking place on November 20th and 21st at the Whittlebury Hall Hotel, the format is a little different from last year – it’s no longer a purely facilities-based event, reflecting that buyers are often looking to purchase across a range of areas.
And this change of emphasis is reflected in the seminar programme too, which will gather thought leaders from across the education sector to offer insight into 2017’s key trends.
Confirmed sessions across the two days include:
Schools Facilities Management – Improving Services and Reducing Costs
Mobile and Cloud – Expanding the Limits of Learning and Collaboration
Fast Construction Programmes for Educational Buildings
Developments in E-Safety and Campus Security
Managing School Finance and Funding Under Budgetary Pressure
Effective Management of Teacher Shortages
The 2016 Education Forum was the most successful to date, with delegates and education suppliers in deep conversation throughout face-to-face meetings.
For the uninitiated, the Education Forum is a unique, tailor-made event for education buyers across multiple segments.
Delegates are given a carefully planned itinerary that ensures their time spent at the event is worthwhile – they meet, share and connect with businesses relevant to their projects in matchmade meetings.
In addition to the learning opportunities available via the seminar programme, there’s also an evening gala dinner, during which the themes from the day can be debated and new partnerships sealed.
In short, if you’re a headteacher, head of ICT, head of digital learning, head of curriculum, head of IT or a bursar within primary, secondary, independent, higher or university education, then the companies, contacts and technology you need to take your facilities to the next level can be found at the Education Forum.
