Time for some handy tips for a good time at Bett…

As my mother always told me, “fail to prepare and prepare to fail”.  Prepping ahead of your arrival to the ExCel Centre will ensure that you maximise your time talking to the people and companies you really want to speak to.

  1. Do your research and check out who’s exhibiting. Sign up to the Bet
    t Visitor Zone
    and save all the people and companies into one handy place and pre book appointments using Bett Connect.
  2. You’ll be stopped by people at every stand so be open to discovering a wild card that will delight you BUT if someone has grabbed your attention and you realise it’s not for you, then let them know politely. Trust me, it will save both of you from wasting your time.
  3. Take a bottle of water, a big one, so you don’t have to line up and pay lots of cash, and while you’re at it perhaps prep a packed lunch.
  4. Know your budget.  There’s no point talking to someone if you can’t afford it, they’ll appreciate the honesty too.
  5. Make sure you leave enough time to check out Bett Futures and the STEAM Village for some grass roots companies that are bringing innovative solutions to learning.

We look forward to seeing you there!
