Creating a Buzz at Dutch Education Show NOT2019

We are currently in snowy Utrecht in the Netherlands at the National Education Exhibition - NOT 2019 - taking place in the Jaarbeurs from 22 to 26 January 2019.

With over forty thousand visitors expected and 400 exhibitors, NOT is the largest event for Dutch teachers and education specialists which focuses on Childcare, Primary Education, Secondary Education and Secondary Vocational Education. Visitors can meet, network and be inspired at the NOT: gain new knowledge at the many workshops, lectures and demonstrations in the Education Academy as well as be inspired by the many new products and services on display.

Percussion Play Netherlands is exhibiting in the main hall on the 'Best Innovation Route' as well as in the 'Innovation Tunnel'. The Cavatina and Music Book on display has been shortlisted to win the prestigious NOT Innovation Award with the winner being announced at the end of the exhibition. Visitors have been invited to have a go and win the Cavatina and Music Book by answering a few simple questions and posting their entry on the Percussion Play stand. I've been told that the both Robin and Gerton have been rushed off their feet with lots of visitors coming to the stand and many entries have been posted!
