VIP Programme for Multi-Academy Trusts

VIP lounge

As a senior education leader from a MAT you will have access to the exclusive VIP lounge where you can take a break from the bustling show floor, enjoy the exclusive content and have a chance to create great connections with other attendees.

You will also have access to exclusive VIP seminars which will be held within the VIP lounge.



We know how busy your day can be at Bett, from visiting the different stands to listening to enriching seminars. There’s a lot to cover in 4 days, which is why we will work with you to pre-arrange any 1-2-1 meetings with suppliers, industry experts and influential figures at the show. This will help better manage your time at Bett.
