BETT 2015 - the UK's biggest education and technology event, has closed its doors for another year, but what a fantastic event it was. From the guest speakers in the BETT Arena on Day 1, to the most innovative and exciting technology being displayed across the event, the show was always going to be a huge success for attendees and exhibitors alike.
On the first day, the BETT Arena played host to the likes of Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales, Ofsted Chairman David Hoare, MP Nicky Morgan, and of course Sir Bob Geldof. This set the tempo for the must attend show of 2015. A walk around the event showed that the agenda for this year was interactive touchscreens, integrated solutions, and several furry characters (chief of which was a monkey that was highly entertained by the automated Access Control entry system on our stand).
What did CRB Cunninghams bring to BETT 2015?
The BETT Show for CRB Cunninghams was a huge success, not only for the volume of people who attended the show, but also the chance to speak with clients, partners and attendees, and what they think 2015 will bring to the education market.
One of the key benefits we were able to provide attendees to the BETT Show, was that ability to showcase our entire catalogue of education solutions, from Cashless Catering, Identity Management and Online Payment, all the way through to Locker Management, Access Control and Electronic Registration.
Alan Vigers, Sales Manager of CRB Cunninghams, stated "It is hugely important for us to be involved at the BETT show, it's a great opportunity to inform our customers and partners about any company news, product releases, and to listen to what systems they need in their day to day business".
Alan continues "With the recent take over from Jonas Software, we used the BETT Show as a fantastic platform to share this acquisition news, and the exciting opportunities it brings with it in the future. We wanted to reassure our customers and the education market that the acquisition will allow us to expand our support base enhancing our national service and support, whilst also having the backing to be able to develop new solutions, and continue to improve our current product range."
Although the BETT Show has finished for another year, the impact of attending and exhibiting at the show will continue throughout 2015.
Only another 351 days until BETT 2016!
From everyone at CRB Cunninghams, thank you for visiting us on the stand!
