BETT celebrates the very best in education technology and innovation, and we are thrilled to receive this prestigious accolade for our contribution to the sector. We remain committed to innovation and improvement, and BETT has also seen us launch our next generation range of interactive whiteboard, the ActivBoard 500 Pro Series which combines advanced pen and touch capability for the first time.”
The BETT Award ceremony marked the first day of the annual international education show.
Promethean’s latest accolade follows a series of prestigious award wins in 2010. The company was named ‘Manufacturer of the Year’ at the AV Awards, and picked up the top prize in three categories at the Worlddidiac Awards.
