Touchable Universe selected for the BETT Futures stand
Touchable Universe has been awarded a place in the prestigious Futures stand at BETT 2017.
BETT is the largest education and technology exhibition in the world and, every year, thousands of companies take the opportunity to showcase their latest innovations.
Recognising that the companies have different profiles – Intel and Cisco vie with startups and micro enterprises – the organisers of BETT decided in 2015 to inaugurate a Futures area for new companies that they think have the most potential to make a difference in education.
Speaking about the decision, a BETT official said:
“Futures made its debut in 2015 as the new, purpose built home (for four days) of the world’s most inspiring ed-tech start-ups, right in with the action on the Bett show floor. The area has been introduced to celebrate and promote brave thinking, new products and education ‘game changers’.”
BETT added that they have never encountered the concept of haptics in education before. It is a totally unique proposition within the EdTech sphere and BETT were delighted to be able to offer Touchable Universe one of the coveted showcase spaces.
The BETT show runs from 25-28 January 2017 and Touchable Universe staff will be on-hand throughout to offer demonstrations of several fully tested learning apps.
