Come and join this open meeting with Duncan Verry, the new Head of Bett and the Education Show - your chance to make your opinion heard


This year we received a great deal of feedback post Bett from members with comments and suggestions that they wanted passed on to the organisers, which we did. We've now gone one step further and are pleased to announce that Duncan Verry, the new Head of Bett, has agreed to join us for a 2 hour Q&A session exclusively with BESA members. As a former owner of an EdTech startup, Duncan is a longtime fan of Bett and is keen to listen to the needs of the community in order to shape the future direction of the show. This is your opportunity to tell Duncan exactly what you need. 


Areas we will be discussing include:

  • What is working well at Bett, but also, what can Bett improve?
  • What do companies want and need from the show?
  • Connect @Bett plans for 2025
  • How can Bett help SMEs - those companies too big for Bett Futures but not ready for a large stand space?
  • New ideas for Bett Futures


We will be running this session as a meeting rather than a webinar, so members will be on camera and able to pose questions directly to Duncan. 

Attendance is free and open to all BESA members. In fact the more people we can get on the call the better, in order to add weight to our requests. 


We will run Q&A throughout the session but if you know you will be asking a question, please let us know in advance so we have some people to call on to get the conversation started.


If you care about Bett as much as we do, and want to ensure your voice is heard, then do make sure you join us on 11th April 2024.
