ISBA 2025 Annual Conference

Why Exhibit? 

The ISBA Conference provides a unique opportunity for organisations to connect with over 500 delegates, the majority holding the bursar or equivalent role.  These are people heading the administrative and financial management of schools and are key decision makers and budget holders in sourcing their school’s products and services.  The ISBA is committed to engaging with delegates through an energising and informative programme of speakers, and facilitating networking and business opportunities through a vibrant exhibition and interactive programme of social events

So if your company offers products or services that can benefit schools of any size then the ISBA conference exhibition offers a unique platform for face to face connection with these influential people.
