Edtech trade show Bett 2022 has been postponed in response to the rise in the Omicron variant of the Covid-19 virus.
Bett 2022 had been scheduled to take place at ExCeL London from 19-22 January. Organisers have now taken the decision to postpone it until 23-25 March.
“Our commitment to ensuring the wellbeing of our community necessitated the shift and we considered feedback from many of our exhibitors, sponsors, attendees and speakers, as well as the impact of changing travel restrictions globally,” organisers said.
“Our global partners Microsoft, BESA and the UK’s Department for Education are supportive of the change and the new show dates.
“Holding Bett in-person at the end of March presents an important opportunity for the education and technology community to come together to learn, trade and network and to look positively to the future of teaching and learning”.
With an overarching theme of ‘create the future’, Ahead By Bett takes the form of three days of content at the show, across three spaces: The Auditorium, which hosts a range of VIP speakers; The Sandbox, offering hands-on demos of new tech; and The Collaboration Space for networking sessions and roundtable discussions.
