BETT was ok this year. I Enjoyed seeing the new parent app from groupcall mainly
Sorry didn't make it over to the edugeek stand, I walked by quickly and saw pizza but had to catch a mate for a beer and it was getting late by that time.
Also took a look at the Acer stand with all their weird and wacky windows 8 devices, TASC software and the Discover on the capita stand.
Overall not as much innovation this year as last but still worth a visit.
I enjoyed BETT this year but was a bit disappointed with the layout, with several of the big zones in the middle it made some of the aisles round the outsides a bit like Hogwards staircases and they went to dead ends meaning lots of the smaller stands were a bit lost as people backtracked etc. While I don't advocate the roman road straight lines format, it was very hard to cover the show in a sweeping motion like you could do at Olympia. However, first year and all that, very impressive venue but was surprised how quiet Saturday was this year (maybe put-off by the DLR being closed) where-as Friday was heaving and at times slightly too overcrowded round the top end. If I'd wanted to buy a smartboard this year then I would have been in geek heaven, as for the rest of the show, a bit lacking in technology from previous shows but then maybe this year I wasn't really looking for anything specific.
As for the traditional see what I could pick-up for the children, well I think I did OK. Good job I don't fly to BETT ;-)
Enjoyed the show all in all though there wasn't much that made me go wow. Still just about worth going to. Excel is a way better venue than Olympia, so much more space, though it was quite confusing to find my way around. Nice to have more space to take a break in the central area, and loads of choice of food, though some more benches would have been nice
First time at BETT on Friday, really enjoyed it! eyed up some nice stuff. Thank you to those at the edugeek stand who gave me my lanyard and bottle opener even though I was to shy to actually say anything :/

Enjoyed BETT again this year. Shame I couldn't be there on the Friday, but at least it gave my feet a rest :D. Didn't really find/see anything truly amazing, but always good to catch up with people and see the latest hardware!
