BESA is delighted to inform you that DIT will again be supporting a limited number of companies to exhibit in the UK Pavilion at this year’s ISTE, one of the most important EdTech exhibitions in the United States. For more than three decades, the ISTE Conference & Expo has attracted 16,000 key decision-makers and influencers from across the globe looking to explore the latest innovations in EdTech. Annual surveys show that the attendees spend an average of six hours exploring the Expo, making it an unequalled global EdTech marketplace.
