BETT 2015: Microsoft Theatre Schedule


It’s finally the week we’ve all been looking forward to, as BETT 2015 kicks off at the ExCel in London! We’ve got lots happening on the Microsoft stand (D270), and one area that we’re sure will see a lot of activity is the Theatre.

BETT 2015 MS Theatre 
We have secured an array of speakers including Microsoft Innovative Educator Fellows, MIE Experts, Showcase School Leaders, product managers from various areas of the Microsoft business, and other special guests. You’ll have plenty of opportunity to listen to each of them speak, with sessions being repeated in the morning and afternoon over the course of the four days.

We’ve tried to include something for everyone in our BETT 2015 Theatre Schedule, and with each session being repeated several times over the week, you should all have plenty of opportunities to attend the sessions that interest you without missing out on everything else that BETT 2015 has to offer.

All of these sessions will be taking place in the Theatre section of the Microsoft stand at BETT 2015, which is located at D270.
