So, a new year is upon us, and BETT 2011 begins tomorrow. Watching the Twitter stream from the LWF2011 conference held just before BETT it looks to have been an interesting and thought provoking event. I am looking forward to BETT, but am also interested to see whether there is much at the show which is new and innovative, and whether teachers and school leaders from the UK make the effort to attend in the financially challenging times that our schools face. For our company it is an opportunity to meet up with old colleagues and potential new partners. We are running a seminar on day one and look forward to meeting many people there.
