Walking around the exhibition there was clear evidence of deep and engaged conversations. Some countries and large exhibitors had brought some truly impressive stands and were seeing correspondingly large numbers of visitors, especially those who were offering innovative digital content. It also reinforced for me the sheer scale of change in Indian education – rather than refurbishing individual schools as in the UK, I heard stories of people looking to make changes in thousands at the same time.
And finally, the evening Awards ceremony was certainly one of my personal highlights of the event. This was truly well organised and impressive, from the graphics to the drone that shocked me by swooping low and filming the event. Of course, winning an award was the icing on the cake!
