Join 60 other senior education pros at the Education Forum

Preview: The Education Forum is a unique event designed specifically for education procurement professionals

Taking place on November 12 and 13 at Whittlebury Hall, Northamptonshire, the event is entirely free to attend, with the invitation also including all meals and refreshments, overnight accommodation and a place at the gala dinner with entertainment.

This is unlike any traditional expo or conference. You will be provided with a bespoke itinerary of pre-arranged, face-to-face meetings with suppliers who match your requirements and upcoming projects. That means that there’s no time wasted and no hard sell.

You’ll have the opportunity to meet with suppliers covering a wide range of product and service areas, including building initiatives, catering, environmental, cleaning, classroom IT equipment, multimedia technology, furniture, halls of residence, healthy lifestyle, lighting, maintenance, software, security risk and management, IT services and solutions and much more.

As one of our VIP guests, you’ll be joining representatives from some of the UK’s leading state and independent schools and colleges, plus educational organisations including: ARK Global Academy, BIMM, Bosco Catholic Education Trust, Deeside House Education Trust, Isaac Newton Academy, Sherborne Girls School, Shireland Collegiate Academy Trust, the University of the West of Scotland, Wolverhampton Grammar School and many more.

And there will be ample opportunities to meet with your peers during the networking coffee breaks and lunches to discuss challenges and opportunities.

Elsewhere, you’ll also have the chance to attend a series of seminars throughout the two days – all free of charge, too. One of the keynotes for 2018 will be ‘Managing extreme, difficult and persistent behaviour in the workplace,’ which will be presented by Martin Smith, Specialist Training Consultant at ITC Consulting.

The Forum is built on a proven formula which has been praised by former delegates. Here’s what some of them had to say about the Education Forum:

“Worth every minute and great for any educational establishment wanting to expand their horizons.” – West Heath School 

“Great event, well organised and led to some surprising and interesting alternatives I would not have normally considered.” – Queensbury Academy 

“Great opportunity to meet new suppliers in a comfortable and non-pressured environment.” – Banbury Academy 

“Excellent event. Focused meetings with suppliers is a more productive use of my time.” – The City of Liverpool College 

“Very good, my first event like this and really enjoyed it. Found things I didn’t know existed and solutions to problems I didn’t know how to solve! Look forward to the next one!” – Sheiling Special Education Trust 

“A very useful couple of days away from the office, networking with peers, quality conversations with suppliers and fun entertainment! The seminars were thought-provoking and relevant. The Forum Events team know how to create a relaxed and friendly environment.” – Kingham Hill School 

“These Forums are ideal for the busy manager who doesn’t have time to sit down and talk one-to-one during business hours. The suppliers are all relevant to schools and offer solutions previously unknown or thought of before. It is a good use of time!” – Bassingbourn College
