    BETT 2013 - Leavers and Joiners

    I've been doing what I do every year ... looking the the show guide for this year and comparing it to last year. Usually I do it to see if there are any folk who have moved to a new location or who have had mergers / name changes / etc ... and this tends to be fairly easy when you are comparing the 2 maps ... except this year they show plans are completely different. Someone would think it is a new venue! ;-)

    Instead, this year I am going through the show guide for last year and making a note of exhibitors that aren't appearing this year, or who are new and weren't there previously.

    It is taking some time to manually go through but I will stick up those folk who are missing first to see if anyone knows if they are still there but partnered with someone else, or if there is another reason why they are not attending (eg attending a different show instead or concentrating on using the money for other things ... like making things work or reducing the cost of the kit for the customer ... or they have simply gone under!)

    I've just finished A-C and found a few interesting things ...
    I can't find the following this time round:
    Guroo (14-19 functional skills resources)
    2Touch Interactive Whiteboards
    3D Systems Corporation (3D printers)
    Ablenet (SEN bespoke specialists)
    Academia (software reseller)
    The Adventure Learning Company
    Allied Technical Services
    Allpay Dosh
    AMX UK (tech integration specialists)
    Archimedes (MIS?)
    Artech Academy (Online Learning)
    ASCL (Not sure if they are involved with the School Leaders event instead)
    Asus (they must be there somewhere ... )
    Attano Media and Education (Online Learning)
    Autology (though they are doing stuff with Microsoft for Windows 8 so look on the Microsoft Windows 8 stand)
    Automation Studio (system and control simulation software)
    AV2 Education (audio Cabinets)
    Avantis
    Awabot (robotics)
    B Active Brain Solutions (games based learning?)
    B Squared (online assessment / testing)
    Bare Conductive (Conductive paint!)
    BCS (Will double check as there is a fair bit of C@S activity going on)
    BEE-IT (online network / news for teachers)
    Beeteg (several companies represented the British Education Engineering and Technology Export Group)
    Bentham Ltd (I don't think they even turned up last year ... pretty sure H15 got used for seating)
    BIBIS IT Solutions (BADGY ID Card printers)
    Big Green Book (a membership group of environmentally friendly companies)
    Biostore (ID management)
    Blue Duck Education (Manga High games distributor)
    Boxford (seriously ... a major CAD/CAM player is missing?)
    British Dyslexia Association
    BromCom
    Brother
    BTEC
    Canford Audio
    Cartridge Stockroom
    CMS Media
    Coexist Foundation / Microbooks Limited
    Collabco (SharePoint specialists)
    Concept4
    Condor Office Solutions
    ConnectED
    Conquermaths
    Corel UK
    CTouch Interactive Touch Displays
    Curriculum Visions (online learning resources)

    A few big names in there ... and I have left a few smaller ones out as they are firms from overseas who tried their hand for a year at BETT.

    Another big name not there this year is AndertonTiger Radio ...
    Russell Prue has been speaking at BETT since 1985 in various guises, but this year he has a well-earned break. The BETT Radio will be run by learners themselves this year as part of the Heppell.net Learn Together zone.


    If you have any news on any of the above please let me know ... and if I have erroneously said someone is not exhibiting then let me know.

    I'll crack on with the others over the weekend (unless anyone else wants to take over checking a few).

    According to the Android app, Boxford and Avantis are both there, though helpfully it doesn't say what stand. Brother are there too on F130. Haven't checked all of them so there may be more, or the app may be wrong.

    It helps to think of it as a migration

    It just means we need to find the squeezy whatever from a stand and use those with whatever polar bears John brings.

    This sounds like a plan. I'm sure some stand will have an appropriate toy we can use
