Learning Places Scotland is a unique platform bringing together representatives of every level of education from senior representatives of the Scottish Government and their associated agencies and bodies including Scottish Futures Trust, Architecture and Design Scotland, the 5 Hubs, councils, heads of schools, colleges and universities.  All share the common goal to drive the development of education in Scotland.

Learning Places Scotland 2024 will feature a section dedicated to the latest technologies, designed specifically to enrich the educational environment. For more information about EdTech Scotland, click here.

For further information, to see the latest floor plan or to enquire about exhibiting or sponsorship opportunities, please contact Jacqui on 01892 351626 or jacqui@stepconnect2.com.

Everyone involved in educational buildings and learning environments in Scotland will be present at Learning Places Scotland and EdTech Scotland. The event attracts architects, consultants, construction companies and suppliers. Furthermore, through the conference audience, you will have unprecedented access to policy makers and influencers from the Scottish Government, relevant organisations/associations and representatives of the councils, as well as educators and estates managers from early years through to higher/further education.  

Exhibitors can maximise return from their participation by making the most of high traffic opportunities (such as coffee breaks) and highlighting their presence both before and during the event, with initiatives such as:

  • Emails, social media posts, etc to your partners and clients, inviting them to come and see you.  Attendees often plan who they want to see at an exhibition to ensure they make the most of the time they have at the event so make sure your customers know that you will be at the show and where to find you. 
  • Speak to key contacts in Scotland before the event to arrange a meeting at the exhibition and consider more informal social gatherings with colleagues or key stakeholders outside the event to make the most of your time in Glasgow.
  • Prepare your onsite team - ensure they have the information they need to hand, they know to be approachable, engaging and proactive, agree how success will be measured (access to certain personages, networking with existing/new business contacts, collecting business cards, etc).  Also, check out the conference programme to ensure all staff are on the stand during high-traffic times, eg. coffee breaks.  See the 2023 conference programme here: https://www.learningplaces.scot/conference-programme
  • Product launches, competitions, refreshments on your stand - it's amazing the lure of a free coffee or the chance to win a luxury prize!  Generate additional traffic on your stands, particularly during the conference breaks by offering an incentive.  If you are planning any of these, please do let us know. We can promote your events through our own channels - our LinkedIn page, our pre-show press release, the website and the exhibition guide. Please send your information to nadine@stepconnect2.com.

More about Scotland’s Learning Estate Investment Programme

Phase 3 of Scotland's Learning Estate Investment Programme has been announced. More school building projects across Scotland will now benefit from a share of the £2 billion Learning Estate Investment Programme (LEIP) to build new, modern, state of the art facilities.

Ten local authorities are to be awarded funding in the third phase worth  £450-500 million, which includes three Additional Support Needs (ASN) schools and a total of six projects which include ASN capacity.

The £2 billion Learning Estate Investment Programme is a joint programme with COSLA and follows on from the successful £1.8 billion Scotland’s Schools for the Future Programme, which delivered 117 new or refurbished learning facilities across Scotland from 2009 to 2021.

If your company has the expertise, knowledge, products & services to help deliver this ambitious programme you will find exhibiting at Learning Places Scotland is your best opportunity to build new connections and relationships, generate leads, share best practice and get specified.
