All hands are on deck at Penstripe HQ as we’re busy preparing for a jam-packed autumn and winter. We’re very excited to be exhibiting at a number of great events over the next few months.
We’re taking Penstripe on tour, where we’ll be on hand to answer questions about our product range, introduce delegates to our brand as well as to some exciting new developments. As a company, we like to attend as many events as we can. We love to talk to people face-to-face and show them our products in real life.
Here’s where you’ll be able to meet us over the next few months:
- DRB Ignite (16th – 17th Sept)
The DRB Ignite event is a conference especially for head teachers and education leaders. Held at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham, this year the theme is ‘Building Futures: Leading Today for Tomorrow’s World’. This event focuses on understanding change in the education industry, and putting this into the context of leadership. Speakers from The Head Teacher Standards Review, Harlem Children’s Zone, National Association of Head Teachers and the University of Cumbria will explore this topic in relation to education over two days of influential speaker slots and networking.
- ICT for Education (25th Sept – Newcastle/16th Oct – Manchester/6th Nov – London/20th Nov – Midlands/4th Dec – Newbury)
The ICT for Education conferences run across five locations on different dates. The aim of these events is to address, and put forward solutions, to ICT challenges faced by teachers and schools. We’ll be giving the delegates and speakers a teaser of what we’ve got planned for January at this year’s ICT for Education events – so if you’re attending, make sure to stop by our exhibition stand.
- Bett (20th – 23rd Jan)
Bett – the world’s leading education technology event, held at ExCel London has been bringing people from all aspects of education together for over thirty years. This convention plays host to influential seminars and high-profile speakers, showcasing the very best that the education industry has to offer. Over 600 exhibitors and 36,000 visitors fill the venue over the weekend with the show being spilt into higher education, primary and early years, secondary and FE, SEN and workplace learning and development sectors.
We can finally reveal that we’ll be launching a brand new product at Bett so if you’re attending, you’ll be one of the very first people to witness our exciting new venture in action!
Plus, we also have something extra-special ready and waiting for our stand at Bett that you really don’t want to miss…!
We’re aware that we’ve told you about lots of secret developments that are currently in the pipeline, but haven’t given much away. All will be revealed in due course…
