Build up to #LT17uk

In just over a week, the Instinct E-learning team will be leaving their desks in their Manchester office and heading to the Learning Technologies Exhibition 2017, which takes place annually at Kensington’s Olympia, London. This will be our 5th consecutive year at the event, and for our ever-growing team representing the e-learning sector, the exhibition is the largest, most awaited date in the year!


Anyone who has attended the show before however will tell you how each year is not only an extremely worthwhile visit but an insightful one. In the five years that Instinct has been exhibiting at the Learning Technologies Exhibition, we have witnessed an amazing journey, the show itself has doubled in size and popularity, and our stand has expanded and developed in equal proportions.

At the turn of the Millennium, the LT’s exhibition started off as an “IT Training Show” with one hall focused on digital learning and partnered with a separate show; “Learning Skills” in the adjacent hall. Over the past 18 years, the advancements in learning technologies globally has resulted in an exponential grown in both exhibitors and attendance at the event. With the number of technology focused exhibitors rapidly increasing, the exhibition soon filled the Olympia’s West hall, and in recent years has overflowed into its partner show, The Learning Skills Exhibition.  As the interest grew, the LT’s has seen stand size double with an array of fantastic stand builds worthy of any trade fair in the world.

With client stands showcasing new developments, new learning platforms, or the application of distance learning, it’s no wonder this show has become the largest, best attended and most relevant exhibition and conference in the learning and development calendar. #LT17uk promises more than 7,500 visitors, 150 free L&D seminars, 250 exhibitors, and now two exhibition halls jammed packed with the latest learning technologies, innovation and best practices.

Much was gained for Instinct at last year’s event and we’re hoping for more of the same at this year’s exhibition.  We feel it’s highly important as a specialist recruitment supplier to the learning technologies industry, to maintain a presence at what is one of the industry’s most prominent fixtures and to keep up to date with the latest development in our sector.  Over the last 5 years, Instinct has developed strong networks with the industry’s foremost companies and created relationships with the some of the most skilled professionals in this extremely unique market.  This year we see the start of a new era, with our new stand, bigger and better than ever before, incredible giveaways and of course our resident caricaturist, Luisa Calvo.

We, therefore, would like to officially invite anyone attending the event to come over and say hello.  Once again, we’ll be offering attendees the chance to win a magnum of MÓ§et & Chandon Champagne and the opportunity to walk away with a digital portrait!

If anyone would like to request a subtle or more private meeting with one of our expert consultants, then please get in touch in advance and we will gladly arrange a coffee. 

Otherwise, we’ll be at Stand F1 on both 1st and 2nd February – See you there!!! | Twitter | LinkedIn | Facebook | 01617140600
