Last week Virtue Technologies attended the Education and Innovation Conference and Exhibition.

EICE

The event was held in the beautiful Manchester central building and enjoyed by more than 2,500 visitors. It went on for two days and consisted of 130 exhibitors and over 60 inspirational speakers.

During our time at the exhibition, we engaged with various representatives from different schools, providing demonstrations and advice surrounding technology in education. Speakers were joined by visitors for talks about issues facing schools in regards to technology and education. There was focus on educational resources quickly becoming more internet-based as the digital revolution gathers pace. Classrooms of the future were fully demonstrated and provided a lot of food for thought.

Phil Lawson, Managing Director of Virtue Technologies, commented;

“As a North West based educational ICT provider, we feel there is a lot of importance in the success of a North West based event. The industry is very London centric with a huge focus on BETT as the “go to” education event.”

“I felt the speakers were exceptional and there was a varied range of discussions across many technological areas which added real value to any attendee. The exhibition, whilst smaller than BETT, was very focused and specific to the needs of the attendees.”

The EICE was a great opportunity for attendees and businesses to come together and discuss the importance of IT in education.
