Exhibitors willing to have TM Takeover presentations on their stands

To take part you will need to ensure your stand has, where necessary:

  1. a display (plasma / projector) able for anyone to connect their laptop / device to;
  2. appropriate PA equipment for your location - which might be noisy! This means a headset mic if you expect presenters not to hold one in their hand...
  3. reliable internet access, so that any presenter can arrive, connect (either via wifi or a cable) and get online; 
  4. enough space for a small crowd to gather and not irritate other exhibitors or block something important... toilets, overpriced sandwiches & coffee, fire exits, you get the idea...


Please add your company's name and a contact name and the most appropriate Twitter account for BETT. Don't worry about slots yet - we just need a roster of willing hosts!

Outline Schedule

This is a two stage process - exhibitors with spaces please start putting your available slots in here... once a slot is up, a speaker/speakers can fill in their name (and a proposed title) - feel free to present with a friend or colleague! If you're not sure of a title but know roughly what you'll be covering, then please fill that in - as exhibitors will need to prepare schedules in plenty of time for the show.

There's also a need for a co-ordinator or two for each day - please sign up in the table headers if you could act as a co-ordinator for a particular day - this would be ideally suited to exhibitors as (a) people will know where you'll be and (b) it isn't likely to be your only day at BETT.

If the tables fill up then use the Table > Row > Insert Row commands to add a row for your slot. Please try and keep the slots in time order so we can work out what's going on!

Once you've signed up to either host or present, then please ensure you follow your host / presenter on twitter so you can message each other (assuming you're both on twitter...). You and your host are responsible for ensuring that your presentation goes ahead - if it's not going to happen, please strike the presentation's details through so everyone knows it's not happening!

Some guidelines for your presentation:


  • You should be a teacher or a practitioner to present;
  • Your presentation should be about free ideas using free tools that anyone watching can take away or access and have a go at without needing to subscribe to anything - please don't assume people have the latest (or any!) version of MS Office. A connection to the internet might be the only thing you should assume.
  • You might showcase a free tool, but it'll be even better if you can demonstrate some work you've done with it
  • If we start to run out of slots, then you might be asked to reduce your number of presentations (if you've signed up to present more than once) so that everyone can get in, but we'll try and get more slots as well...
