The Education Forum presents a unique opportunity to engage, face-to-face with a select audience of decision-makers who are open to new ideas and options and are looking to source service providers who can help with both their ongoing and future projects.
The event is aimed at business managers, bursars, facilities managers, finance directors, head teachers and estates directors who have specifically asked to meet with you, wish to discuss your products and services and are prequalified and proactively looking for venue solutions.
Attendees can look forward to selected and matched meetings, but while they are assured of no time-wasters or hidden costs, they can expect cost-effective and measurable ROI.
‘If I can only attend one Education Facilities event a year, it will be a Forum Event’
November’s event promises to be better than ever – every year new schools, colleges and universities are invited, bringing new and exciting projects so you will always be meeting new, potential clients.
Time is precious, so the Forum ensures an efficient approach to event attendance because delegates can increase their knowledge of how, why and where to invest without hanging around waiting for the wrong supplier. This means that both delegate and supplier get the most out of the 36-hour event.
Delegates will attend scheduled 25-minute face-to-face meetings with suppliers, as well as be invited to attend 45-minute inspirational and educational seminars conducted by a range of speakers. Rob Coulthard, MD of Judgment Index UK Ltd, Louise Hosking, director, chartered safety & health practitioner, Hoskings Associates Ltd and Matthew Gill, sales manager at TG Escapes are already confirmed at time of going to press, with several other business leaders expected to speak.
A range of eminent service providers across diverse business sectors will also be present, with Alexandra, the UK’s leading suppliers of uniforms to the healthcare, hospitality, catering and other industries representative of over a dozen companies already confirmed. DIY essentials and tool hire sector leader Screwfix, artificial turf experts S & C Slatter, software providers TES Foundation, playground equipment innovators Playtime by Fawn and water solutions European market leader Delabie evince the calibre of suppliers exhibiting.
Suffice to say, previous visitors to the Education Forum, both service providers and education establishments, have provided much positive feedback to the event’s organisers. Integrated facilities management services provider Ocean Integrated Services said: “Fantastic event, with good delegates and the right atmosphere to conduct conversations,” while Ink4Business reported: “A very well-organised event and an excellent way to meet new potential customers.”
Wall and floor manufacturer Altro Ltd said: “Some excellent meetings, great venue, people and definitely gained business,” while even companies on their first visit to the Education Forum find it of great benefit, Wila Lighting commenting, “This was new to Wila Lighting but overall, very useful.”
Delegates’ testimonials are equally as glowing, confirming Forum Events as the foremost event organiser of their kind, whether for the primary, secondary or higher education sectors. Chipping Norton School said: “If I can only attend one Education Facilities event a year, it will be a Forum Event. I have been to two events and have made useful contacts with suppliers and other schools. I have ended up purchasing equipment I would not have otherwise known about or been confident in procuring. The face-to-face appointments are invaluable both in saving time and targeting the right solution.”
Other establishments were impressed by the Education Forum’s management and its conducive-to-conversation mood. The City of Liverpool College said: “Professionally managed event which was a pleasure to attend,” with the London Borough of Hillingdon commenting: “Very informative, good to have time to talk to suppliers with no interruptions.”
