Once again, technology meets education at BETT 2019, the ideal event to showcase the latest, cutting-edge solutions for education. Brimming with ideas and solutions that benefit educators and institutions alike, Vivitek’s offerings will stand out for the impressive way they drive collaboration and learning, while embracing concepts like BYOD (bring your own device) and the connected classroom.
