    Have to agree. Many of the stands seem to be untenanted on the interactive floor map - well in the SEN area anyway.

    I did however mange to find a list of SEN exhibitors with greater ease in the app than I did on the website. All I wanted was a list of companies in the SN area... and I couldn't get one easily on the website!

    Given that BETT is an IT showcase, the website is dreadful!

    You would have thought the app would pop up with the name and stand number when you click on a stand... or a search feature... but no.

    Also, I think there are some exhibitors missing from the app database...

    I remember asking one of the BETT organisers who does the website, they said its done in house to save on costs and the guy that does it, does it all based on dreamweaver and flash, with some fireworks thrown in.

    If you ask me it looks like a 1st year college student did it (no offence to them, but they lack the knowledge to appease the target audience)

    You just cant find the info you want on it at all. It's Chaotic..

    I've gone on there for various reasons and have just given up in frustration!

    I think edugeek needs to take over the BETT website. It'd be awesome!
