Why you should visit us at BETT 2023

Feb. 27, 2023

What is Bett?

Bett is the biggest Education Technology exhibition in the world and this year it’s taking place at Excel London from 29th – 31st March. It's a place for educators to network, engage in inspiring content and find solution providers.

Check out our Bett 2022 highlight video to see what we got up to last year!

Registration is free until 3rd March and you can find out more or sign up here.

Mash it up

Come along to our stand and find out all about the recent developments in Purple Mash. This year you will also be able to sample our brand-new Purple Chip, a free app that enables schools to program external devices. As well as chips, we will also have robots from our new Lab area that you will be able to program and find out how you can make the most of both developments in your school.

There’ll be Master Mashers on the stand each day - teachers who are experts in using Purple Mash in their schools. Have a chat and find out how they make the most of 2Code (recently updated) or how they use Purple Mash across the school.

You will also be able to view all our books in Serial Mash and see the updated platform in action alongside new content from DK Learning. Experts will also be on hand to answer any questions about how to set books, and activities and use the data in Serial Mash.
