PLANET9 Debuts at BETT to Level Up Esports Education

The British Educational Training and Technology Show (abbreviated as Bett) 2022 is set to take place during March 23-25 at the ExCeL London convention center. This marks PLANET9’s first appearance at Bett, and PLANET9 with Acer for Education will offer exclusive student esports tournaments, esports keynote speeches for educators, and esports implementation-to-school packages only at Bett UK 2022.

Bett has been the pioneering hub of “providing world-class content, networking and discovery” in education technologies to both the public and private sectors for over 35 years. In its latest installment, Bett is featuring the esports/gaming community for the first time with the “Esports @ Bett” show floor, offering esports integration content for educators, esports equipment experience for visitors, and esports tournaments for students from across the UK. As core members of the esports education community, PLANET9 and Acer for Education proudly join forces with Bett, looking to bring the best esports actions to all visitors.

PLANET9 is the comprehensive platform that integrates tournaments, communities, statistics, courses, and content in the esports ecosystem in one place. Known for its diversified features and passion to bring esports into education, PLANET9 is trusted by and has been cooperating with agencies like HudL.gg, and student societies such as Central London University Esports (CLUE) to elevate esports’ visibility and perception to the public in the UK.

Educational esports events headlined by PLANET9 have had the success that exceeded expectations since 2020. The CLUE 24-Hour Charity Stream managed to raise over £2,000 with several student esports shows for Guy’s and St Thomas’ Charity to help combat COVID-19; while the PLANET9 University Invitational brought together students from 8 renowned universities in London to showcase the talent of academic esports and compete for prizes totaling more than £2,600.
