BESA - the British Educational Suppliers Association

BESA 75 Years Anniversary LogoWho We Are

BESA is a trade association. Trade associations are organisations which represent a particular industry, but do not supply products themselves. They promote and provide information about their member companies and are a good source of information and advice about their respective industries.

BESA has over 300 members which include manufacturers and distributors of equipment, materials, books, consumables, furniture, technology, ICT hardware and digital content – all to the education market.

BESA members supply to UK and international markets, across the curriculum and at all levels from early years to FE and vocational training. The total turnover of BESA members is in excess of £1.8 billion.

BESA members offer buyers peace of mind by subscribing to a Code of Practice.

BESA promotes and supports major education events such as the annual BETT Show, the Education Show, and other events such as the BETT Awards and the Education Resources Awards.
