We’re Bett Award 2015 Finalists!

We are very happy to learn that we have been chosen as one of the six finalists for ICT Company of the Year (under £1m turnover) at the Bett Awards 2015! We won’t know until January if we will win – but it is so great to be recognised by one of the biggest education shows in the world.

Formerly known as the British Educational Training and Technology Show, the Bett Show is an annual event that showcases the use of information technology in education. It has been running since 1985 and now takes place at the ExCeL Centre in London. Bett celebrated its 30th anniversary at the 2014 show, which attracted over 35,000 visitors from 113 countries. We are looking forward to attending the Awards ceremony in January hosted by Josh Widdicombe. We’ll also have a stand at Bett 2015 – so please come along to see us on Stand G74!

Nathan Beardmore, co-founder said:
