NetSupport Radio

NetSupport Radio (from NetSupport, the global expert in school IT solutions), has teamed up with Bett to become the official broadcaster of Bett 2020. Powered by Anderton Tiger, it provides an interactive forum for visitors to explore, debate and reflect on the show’s six new themes.
