As many of you will know, BETT, the Europe’s largest annual EdTech exhibition, is taking place at the ExCel centre from 22nd-25th January 2020! Taking place over four days, BETT is a great chance to get up to date with all the current trends and offerings in the EdTech sector, as well as to meet and chat with like-minded education leaders. If you’ve never been to BETT, you can read more about it here.

The team at Arbor HQ always look forward to BETT, as we get to catch up with schools and MATs using Arbor, meet new and existing partners, and talk to schools and MATs thinking of switching MIS about how Arbor could help take the hassle out of daily school admin for their staff. We’ve got a lot going on this year at the show, so we’ve written this quick round-up of where you can meet us – hope to see you at one of our events!

Come and have lunch on us
We’re taking over Tapa Tapa Restaurant (just outside the main BETT entrance), where we’ll be serving tea and coffee from 11am, and lunch and a glass of wine from 11:30 each day. It’s all on us, so whether you already use Arbor, or are looking to switch to a more modern, user-friendly system, it’s a great chance to meet us and learn more about our cloud-based MIS for schools and trusts. Our team of experts will be on hand to answer any of your questions, and they’ll be joined by a few trusts and primary, secondary and special schools using Arbor, so you can ask them about why they decided to make the switch. Just click here to book your free spot – hope you can make it!


Come to one of our User Groups
From 10am-11am each morning, we’re running a series of Arbor User Groups. During these sessions, we’ll be sharing all the latest developments in Arbor, so come along to find out what we’ve got coming up in 2020 and catch up with some of our team. The programme is below:

Wednesday 22nd January: How to use Arbor to strengthen parental engagement at your school (including getting the most out of the Arbor App!)
Thursday 23rd January: Best practice on managing assessments in Arbor Friday 24th January: What’s coming up on Arbor’s 2020 Roadmap

You can click here to book your free spot at any of our User Groups. If you don’t use Arbor but you’d like to learn more about how our system could transform the way you work at school, please feel free to come along!

See Arbor’s cloud-based MIS in action
As well as Tapa Tapa, you can also find us at stand NM30 inside the main BETT arena. The Arbor team will be giving demos of our cloud-based MIS throughout the show, so feel free to come along and see our product in action and watch how it could take the stress out of daily school management for your staff. If there’s a particular part of the system that you’d like to see, just let us know and we can show you!

Come to our Tech in Action talk
 Join former school leaders Tim (Senior Partnership Manager at Arbor) and Stephen (Product Lead at Arbor) on Thursday 23rd January in the Tech in Action Theatre at 13:45 talking about how Arbor MIS could transform the way you run your school. They’ll be explaining how our cloud-based MIS makes your essential daily admin more powerful and less stressful – so everyone from your back office to your SLT can get on and focus their time where it matters most. In particular, Tim and Stephen will show you how the core functions of Arbor work – including how to manage attendance, behaviour, assessments, interventions and communications all in one place – helping you to reduce staff workload and understand your school better.

Find out more about becoming an Arbor partner
From 2:30pm-4pm each day at Tapa Tapa, we’re inviting all of our partners to drop in and have a glass of wine on us. Beth and David from our Partner Team will be at the restaurant each afternoon to meet both existing and new partners, so if you’re looking to find out more about how you could work with Arbor, come and say hello – we’d love to meet you. Just click here to book your free spot at our BETT Partner Lounge.

Finally, we’re incredibly excited to announce that we’ve been nominated for a BETT Award in the Company of the Year category! We’re really proud to have helped more than 800 schools and 80 MATs make the switch to our smarter cloud-based MIS, and we’re delighted to have been recognised by the BETT Awards panel. Winners are announced on Wednesday 23rd January, so keep your fingers crossed for us!
