Step-by-step guide

The Bett Arena

  • Audience capacity up to 1,000 plus overflow in the streaming zone
  • All content must be original and fresh and created specifically for the Arena
  • If your idea is successful, you as the session host will be responsible for all logistical costs (travel, accommodation, speaker fees)
  • All speakers need to attend a technical rehearsal the day before they are due to speak

The Arena should kindle the spark of passion in education so great ideas can catch fire and travel the world. We choose keynote-style solo presentations, professionally conducted interviews with high-profile guests, panel discussions, live performances and complex demonstrations, so we recommend confident and experienced speakers. We have a skilled technical and stage crew to assist with onsite delivery – so we’re open to all ideas.

Note: Once all submissions are received, the Bett Content Team enter into a review process. Due to limited number of sessions, unfortunately we can only select those ideas we feel are the most innovative and most relevant to our core audience.

Take a moment to think about the story you want to tell at Bett. The best talks tend to focus on a single clear message or idea. This is your opportunity to speak to a room full of leading educators and those passionate about the universe of education from around the world.

  • Who should tell your story

Your chosen speaker plays a huge part in the success of a proposal. There are unlimited types of speakers you could bring to the stage, but relevancy is key – not just to the idea, but also the Bett audience.
