Bett Show

Bett 2023 was bigger and BETTer than ever!

Last week we packed up our van and headed to London for Bett 2023. It was the fourth time we’ve exhibited there, but this year it was bigger and BETTer than ever!

Over 30k people attended the three day event at the ExCeL arena. We had a blast meeting so many new people, as well as lots of familiar faces too! It was a really great chance for us to show what we do in more detail through demos of our products and services by some of our super friendly team.

Build day for Bett 2023.

After packing the last few bits into the van, we left Portsmouth bright and early. When we arrived at the ExCeL arena in London, our stand build was well underway so we could crack on setting up everything else! We had lots to do, such as building our counters, setting up furniture and getting our demo equipment ready so we could show our Netsweeper, Smoothwall, Fortinet, SDWAN and 3CX services.

It’s showtime!

After a good nights’ sleep and delicious breakfast at our hotel, we were raring to go for the first day of Bett 2023!

This was the first year that Bett introduced Connect @ Bett, which let people pre-book meetings with us. We had some really productive conversations with school staff, fellow tech companies, and IT solution teams. And it was great chatting to so many students too (though we think the freebies and sweets might have had something to do with tempting them come and see us!). Plus it was amazing getting to see so many familiar faces again, such as our strategic partners Concero and Joskos.

The demos of our products and services proved to be popular too, and our team were kept busy showing everything we do. We really loved seeing the other exhibitors around us too (especially the robot dog that Stemi was entertaining us with – we just need to convince someone to let us have one now).

Until next year…

There’s a huge amount of effort that goes into exhibiting at shows (we’re already busy planning for next year!). We wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone who made Bett 2023 such a huge success for us. From our team who’d planned and travelled to attend the show (apparently the van karaoke was the highlight of the journey to London), to the event organisers, suppliers and contractors we worked with, we couldn’t have done it without you! We wanted to give a special shout out to Tecna UK who provided our graphics and built our stands – they did an amazing job and we look forward to working with them again in the future.

We’ve booked our space for Bett 2024 already. Hopefully we’ll see you there!
