Capita Symonds sponsors BSEC 2010

17 February 2010

Capita Symonds is a Gold Sponsor of BSEC 10 – the main annual conference and exhibition in the school design sector – at London Excel from 24-25 February.

The sponsorship – alongside Laing O’Rourke, Gardiner & Theobold, The Concrete Centre and Wolseley, and Platinum Sponsors Skanska and BAM – is a key element in maintaining our profile in the education sector.

BSEC is the only event in Britain that caters for all those involved in school building projects such as architects, teachers, builders, ICT specialists, Local Authority heads and sub-contractors. It also happens to be the fastest growing event in the UK, with visitor numbers up 300% in 2009.

As Gold Sponsor Capita Symonds has prominent branding on all event publicity including supporting advertising in the Event Guide and a corresponding supplement in The Independent. Our 30sqm exhibition stand will act as a strong ‘signpost’ for our presence and we are also hosting two tables at the sold-out BSEC Gala Dinner on 24 February.

Susan Witterick from Capita Symonds’ Acoustics team will be speaking on Wednesday 24 February at 1540 regarding 'Co-located services, SENs, and external spaces'.

Other keynote speakers include:

  • Professor Stephen Heppell,
  • Lord Puttnam, film producer and education philanthropist
  • Tim Byles, chief executive, Partnerships for Schools
  • Anna Fazackerley, head of education & arts & culture units, Policy Exchange
  • Sir Bruce Liddington, former Schools Commissioner for England and director general, EACT
  • Barry Sheerman MP, chairman of the children, schools and families select committee
