Education Estates

Education Estates brings together everyone involved in delivering education facilities now, and for the future

 The only event of its kind in the UK, covering the primary, secondary and higher education sectors, its success is built on three key elements:

 âž¡ï€ The Exhibition features the entire supply chain serving the education sector. It’s a unique marketplace where manufacturers and providers can meet decision-makers and specifiers, make new contacts, generate leads and new product ideas, and identify current and emerging opportunities in the education sector.

➡The Conference features over 60 speakers, with specialist content streams for Schools and Colleges & Universities. Lively and authoritative, it’s THE professional gathering for everyone concerned with education’s built environment.

➡The annual Education Estates Awards & Dinner is a fantastic networking opportunity for exhibitors, speakers, visitors and delegates – and a great night out, too! This year, it will be held in Manchester’s prestigious Midland Hotel.
