Bett Seminar Programme 2018

Through our research everyone told us they struggle to see everything at the show and most agreed they wanted less, but better produced content. So, we’ve been listening and this year we will be presenting talks on 4 larger stages and theatres. Each will have improved A/V and theatre production.
