17-18 October 2023 | Manchester Central | 11th Edition

130 exhibitors | 120 speakers | 2700+ attendees


The annual Education Estates® Exhibition, Conference and Awards will take place in just one month! Held in partnership with the Department for Education, Education Estates® is the leading event for learning environments in the UK, focusing on educational buildings, giving a peek into the future and discussing the key challenges.  It is now in its 11th year and promises to be bigger and better than ever, with over 130 exhibitors. The organisers expect 2700+ attendees over two days, looking to discover solutions to their own specific challenges, whether that is a brand new building or new initiatives that enhance an existing facility. 

The event is targeted at those who influence, design and build educational facilities, bringing together policy makers, architects, suppliers, directors of estates and head teachers. All share the common goal of maximising the potential of our young people through innovative design and imaginative solutions.  This year’s conference programme promises to be truly inspiring, with a Department for Education briefing on policy and design, and sessions that address unlocking efficiency, zero carbon, sustainability, safety, inclusion, digital future and enhancing the learner’s experience.  In total, over 120 experts will be speaking, sharing their insights and lessons learned.

All the leading names will be represented at the exhibition, with a wide range of products and services on display, all designed to elevate learning environments and create inspiring spaces for students and educators. Big names include:

Arcadis, Galliford Try, Dulux Trade, TG Escapes modular eco-buildings, Cundall, ISG, Apteriors, Reds10 (UK), Kier Construction, Morgan Sindall Construction, Lawray Architects, Algeco, LocatED, AtkinsRéalis, Energys Group, Portakabin, Salix Finance, iAM Compliant, Bouygues, Fusion21, Rider Levett Bucknall, Gleeds and McAvoy.


The exhibition is always evolving and, this year, many will be taking part in the EduFringe programme, a series of events that will boost the attendees’ experience and give exhibitors the chance to place their latest brands in the spotlight.  Highlights include the TG Escapes Modular eco-buildings relax and reboot lounge, the EduFest drinks reception sponsored by Chartered Institute of Building and the Opening Party, where exhibitors will host intimate sessions focussing on a specific challenge.

The Awards Dinner is always a sell-out event, where the education sector celebrates excellence and achievement, and attendees can network in a more informal setting.  Education Estates® is supported by the Royal Institute of British Architects, The Trust Network, The Chartered Institute of Building, Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, LocatED, University Design Forum and the Modular and Portable Buildings Association.
