Learning Technologies 2023 Exhibition: A Wrap-Up
On 3-4 May this year, Europe’s leading workplace learning event brought the L&D community together at ExCeL London for an enriching and inspiring experience. Following a successful edition in 2022, the Learning Technologies Exhibition returned with 10,000 L&D professionals, more than 200 international exhibitors, and over 200 free seminars worth of content.
Learning Technologies gives a warm thanks to all the learners, speakers and exhibitors that made this an unforgettable L&D showcase. If you want to re-live the event – or want to know what you missed out on – read our official wrap-up of Learning Technologies 2023 Exhibition!
PROGRAMME: Over 200 free seminars presented every 45 minutes
The free seminars and Bitesize Learning Zones offered an expansive range of topics, and emphasised hands-on learning experiences through live demonstrations. These seminars allowed participants to delve deeper into specific technologies and gain practical skills that could be applied directly in their work, and a deeper understanding of the concepts discussed.
Measuring learning was a key theme across the exhibition, with many of the exhibitors focusing on it. While the importance of learning and development and the demands placed on it are high, the financial squeeze on learning budgets was evident. Artificial intelligence in learning was the number one tech theme – vendors were keen to showcase their own AI in their platforms and development programmes.
There were an array of case studies presented across the two days. Santander shared how their sustainable culture works with 25,000 employees, Stanford University’s enterprise-wide version of Slack was showcased, and a conversation with Starbucks UK on how to captivate your leaders to learn.
EXHIBITION FLOOR: More than 200 international exhibitors featured the latest L&D products
Spread across several halls of the ExCeL, the exhibition had over 200 vibrant stands displaying a variety of innovative learning products and services. From AI applications to gamification platforms and learning management systems (LMS), there was no shortage of tools and technologies designed to enhance the workplace learning experience. The exhibitors were highly approachable and demonstrated their learning solutions in an engaging way – making a bustling exhibition floor for thousands of L&D professionals to explore.
