SAMI hits the road and will be at the IPPN Conference in Citywest this week! See you there?

So, Christmas is long forgotten, January has rolled around once more, which must mean it’s IPPN Conference time again!

If you’re a primary school principal, we’d love to see you at this year’s Conference, so please come over and say hello to Henry, Ken & Sarah at stand number F5.

We always look forward to meeting our customers in person, and this year we have a very special software licensing offer, available only for Conference week.

We’ll be busy at our stand throughout the event, but we’ve had a look at the schedule for delegates at and it seems the organisers have really outdone themselves this year with the line-up of speakers and events.

For example;

  • Lord David Puttnam will speak on Day 1, and no doubt he will ruffle a few feathers given that the former film director turned education activist (and Irish resident) has strong opinions on Education in the UK and Ireland
  • Former President of Ireland, Mary Robinson also addresses the Conference and the sheer breadth of her career and achievements should lead to an illuminating talk
  • And there are many other interesting speakers, such as Ben Walden, Ruari Quinn, Michael Fullen and of course new IPPN President Gerry Murphy
  • Plus there are personal development and wellness sessions

The theme of the Conference this year is ‘Forging a Future’, and given that Education and the country in general, has rarely been in such a state of uncertainty, the theme is very apt. SAMI (and our fellow exhibitors) hope to continue contributing to ‘forging a (better) future’ for our schoolchildren through our products, as well as contributing to the country through our economic activity.

And our favourite way to do this is by meeting our customers face-to-face!

So, we look forward to seeing you at the Expo, and we hope you all have a productive Conference
