Learning Technologies 2019 #LT19UK

The dust has settled on Europe’s biggest organisational Learning Expo, Learning Technologies 2019, and the Instinct team are once again proud to have played their part.  Certainly, on the first day of the event, as we can't remember a time when our Stand was so busy as this; a suspicion confirmed when the organisers announced a record-breaking attendance for any day in the event’s history. 

Whether the crowd that congregated at our stand were there to seek career advice or merely to get their complimentary, personal caricature is one lingering in doubt! Louisa, our resident caricaturist is now in her fourth Instinct Learning Tech’s and news of her talents has obviously travelled far and wide!  (Digital copies will be sent to all who took part.)

More generally, we spoke to delegates from as far away as South Africa and Exhibitors all the way from Oz – this has truly become a global event. Our Head of Higher Education also noted a marked increase in visitors from that sector; perhaps the content at the show is appealing to an ever-increasing audience?

A word on ExCel as a new venue; we all thought that the facilities were excellent but this is offset by the fact that it’s at an ‘out of town’ location and is less accessible to many. This didn’t stop us having a couple of decent nights in ‘The Fox’ – especially with complimentary drinks on the Wednesday night and a performance from the organisers' son’s band to mark the ten year anniversary of the Learning Technologies event. 

A successful Learning Technologies event has ensured a hive of activity for Instinct that has kept us busy in subsequent days, following up on all of the positive conversations we had with candidates, contractors and clients alike. Indeed, in the aftermath of the Learning Technologies Exhibition, and, in the weeks preceding the release of New Tax Year budgets; February and March are always amongst our busiest months. 

All in all, a fantastic couple of days – thanks to everyone who came by to say ‘hello’ and rest assured – we’ll be there again next year! #LT19uUK #LT20UK
