Action At The Academies Show

27th June 2019

The 2019 Schools and Academies Show, held at London Excel, welcomed speakers, exhibitors and visitors from across the Education industry.

This year was the first time the show had been split over 2 days, welcoming an even larger audience than previous years.

Action Storage was one of over two hundred exhibitors attending the show and was located next to the Hot Seat And Send Theatre on stand 828.

We had both our steel Atlas Lockers and tougher-than-tough eXtreme Plastic Lockers on show and the response we had from visitors was all very positive!

eXtreme Lockers got a lot of attention for their outdoor capability. Previous feedback from schools has highlighted the huge demand for extra space within classrooms and hallways. eXtreme Plastic Lockers can withstand even the harshest weather conditions, making them the ideal outdoor storage solution. They are also great for swimming pools and other wet areas as the chlorine in water won’t cause damage.

The School and Academies show attracts a huge amount of teaching staff and we had the pleasure of speaking with several Head and Deputy Head Teachers across the two days. Several remarked on the modular aspect of our eXtreme range and how the smaller lockers stacked two high were perfect for primary school children alongside the swivel catch locks we offer eliminating the need for younger students to remember keys or combinations.

Crowds gathered at the Hot Seat and Send Theatre to hear from Secretary of State for Education, The Rt Hon. Damian Hinds MP, where he addressed the latest priorities across the education sector, including the financial pressure currently on schools and academies across the country.

Here at Action Storage, we understand that funding can often be an issue for schools. Our steel Atlas Lockers offer state-of-the-art design at very competitive prices, offering one of the most cost-effective storage solutions on the market.

Furthermore, we are also in partnership with Independent Locker Solutions LTD to offer a locker rental scheme. By using our rental scheme school can benefit from our student personal storage solutions without having to cover the cost, this went down very well with many of the show’s attendees.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time and the 2019 Schools and Academies Show and look forward to working with many of you throughout the year to deliver bespoke storage solutions for your students. To celebrate the success of the show we are continuing our special show offer and giving a 10% discount on your next Locker order. Book before June 5th to guarantee an installation during the summer holidays.
