Wednesday (17th May 2023) saw the Schools & Academies Show at London’s Excel.
Steve & Stuart attended, arriving mid-morning and joined a longish queue to gain entry. Once inside the place was fairly buzzing and the aisles were busy.
There were lots of exciting and interesting stands to look at and, as governors / trustees, we came away with some interesting ideas – as well as far too much literature – to take back to our respective schools and Trusts.
Amongst the 150 + exhibitors, only three MIS providers we’re there, being Arbor, Bromcom & Compass. They all had good looking stands, which were fairly close to each other, and were demonstrating their software to schools & MATs alike.
All three appeared to be pretty busy throughout the day, confirming the levels of interest there are from school and MATs currently exploring their MIS options.
