Counting down the 12 days of Examas - January

Exploring the 12 Days of Examas

We’re getting close to the end of the year at Exa Networks, with just a couple of weeks left in 2017. While there’s still a lot happening at Exa, we think now’s a great time to take a look back through the year, going through the major events from the year - and some things you might have missed!

First, a little bit of information - while a lot of people from our office are set to take holidays through the next couple of weeks, so you may not necessarily be able to get in touch with everyone, members from our support team will be staying in the office through winter, except for Christmas Eve, Christmas, Boxing Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day, to make sure that you’re able to get assistance at practically any point.

We’re running our Christmas party on the 22nd of December, heading on over to Shipley’s Halfway House for a great evening.

We’ll be publishing 12 daily posts taking a look back at each month in 2017 in the days leading up to our party - read on to take a look through the first one!

Looking through January 2017

January is almost always the biggest month for Exa, and it’s all because of the Bett Show, the single largest Edtech event in the UK, seeing tens of thousands of attendees head down to the show in search of difference-making classroom technology.

With award-winning stand design (taking home the Bett Award back in 2015) and a prime location right next to Microsoft’s stand at the show, Bett is a major event for our sales team, bringing in hundreds of fantastic leads, and giving us a chance to catch up with some of our education partners.

This year, our comic-themed Bett stand explored DarkLight, our unique dark fibre service, designed to make ultrafast connectivity more accessible than ever for schools and businesses, with a whole lot of superpowered features. We’re heading back to Bett in 2018, with the show running from the 24th to 27th of January - visit our team at stand C322, or come meet us at the Bett Awards, where our GCSE Computer Science MOOC is nominated for the best Secondary Content Award.
