Towards Maturity’s Guide to making the most of World of Learning 2014

The comprehensive event for all aspects of Learning and Development (L&D) takes place 30th September and 1st October at Birmingham’s NEC and offers a dedicated area for technology trialling.

Technology Test Drive Zone

Getting to grips with the latest technology for learning and development isn’t always easy, particularly when there are so many options. Visitors to the World of Learning Conference & Exhibition have the chance to explore the latest innovations at the Technology Test Drive zone.
