The Academies Show 2018 is set to be one of the education sector’s biggest ever events – so it’s important to plan your trip properly to ensure you get the most out of the experience.
Taking place on Wednesday 25th April at London’s Excel, the show will give you the opportunity to hear from inspirational heads, thinkers and leaders across the whole education sector. You will also have the opportunity to find new partners, network with over 200 leading education suppliers exhibiting on the day and mingle with around 3,000 of your colleagues in the same place. Everyone will be there for the same reason – to collaborate and work together for better outcomes for pupils.
As such, it's important for attendees to make sure they take the time to properly plan their trip, as this will ensure they don't end up missing out on anything the show has to offer.
You'll have a clear idea in your head of which exhibitors and seminars you can't afford to miss during the Academies Show 2018, so it's a good idea to create a list of priorities and set aside time to attend these must-see events.
Some events at the Academies show 2018 take place at set times or require you to book an appointment in advance, so make sure you put together a schedule that will get you to where you want to be.
