The Bett Awards are organised and managed by i2i Events Group and The British Educational Suppliers Association (BESA). 

Debbie French, exhibition director at i2i Events Group, said: “The judges look for companies offering the highest quality products and services that provide the best fit for purpose, value for money, innovation, support and customer care.  Hundreds of entries are narrowed down to the finalists; all of whom deserve applause. With the increasing number of award entries year on year, winning a Bett Award has truly become a mark of excellence in ICT. Educators can be assured that each of the winners offers engaging resources that respond to the needs of the education system to improve learning outcomes.”

Caroline Wright, director general designate of BESA, added: “The UK leads the world in terms of our technology based learning resources. Ten of thousands of educators visit Bett each year to see what the UK can offer the world in educational ICT. The Bett Awards are a robust, criteria-led way, to promote the best technological solutions that really work in classrooms. The Bett Awards are now the standard by which the UK and international education industry can recognise and reward valuable and innovative resources.”
