British Educational Suppliers Association

BESA, the British Educational Suppliers Association, is the only trade association covering the entirety of the UK educational suppliers sector and represents over 300 suppliers, including manufacturers and distributors of equipment, materials, books, consumables, furniture, technology, ICT hardware and digital-content related services to the education market.

BESA is dedicated to showcasing the world-leading educational products and services provided by British educational suppliers, and providing support and advice to its members, the industry and to schools looking for the best resources and services.

BESA works with DIT to support UK companies to showcase their products worldwide. British educational products are in high demand around the world due to their award-winning quality. In particular, the UK is looking towards Asia, and more specifically China, which has the largest education system in the world. With circa £200bn and expected to grow to £340bn by 2020 with the relaxation of the one child policy, China represents an export market of choice for UK educational resources suppliers. Indeed, they can provide world-leading resources in all areas, from early years through to high school, higher education and vocational training.
