Events, exhibitions and conferences

In 2019, we will be attending the following events:

ICT for Education

  • 10th May - Madejski Stadium, Reading
  • 28th Jun - St Helens R.F.C, Merseyside
  • 22nd Nov - Venue T.B.C

Why we attend

We work with a range of schools, colleges and universities to offer them high quality, low priced refurbished IT hardware.

At the ICT for Education and Schools & Academies show, we would love to meet people looking to save money on tech and make money from recycling old hardware.

What we exhibit

We will be taking some of our most popular hardware to the show, including our Dell Optiplex 7010 SFF PC, Inc. 22” Monitor, Latitude Laptop, and iMac 21” or 27”.

Pop along to our stands and pick up a bamboo cup, bag and information about how we can save you 80% off the value of your hardware.

Our aim and services

Our aim is to engage with delegates, and discuss your school or college site’s current or potential requirements. We will highlight that by purchasing refurbished IT hardware you will be able to get more for your budget, without compromising on the quality or specification of your desired model and device.

You are invited to use the displayed refurbished IT hardware. We also offer a recycling scheme, which potentially could see us offering an amount for redundant IT equipment which we would arrange to collect from schools/colleges.

We then test, clean and data wipe following WEEE protocols. Following this we issue the site a certificate to confirm the data has been destroyed for each of the PCs and or laptops. We will then send the school/college a cheque for an amount agreed.
