Where Leicester Marriot Hotel, Leicester

Our title, ‘Making IT Better’ encapsulated a key theme of the Naace conference 2016. Recent technological advances have afforded us an unparalleled opportunity to create and be creative either as a tool or as a medium. Specially chosen presenters, who are trailblazers in the field, gave conference delegates an insight into the ways that such technology is already being harnessed in the process of making things, whether that be media or artefacts. Themes emerging from ‘Maker Culture’ featured, as did exciting examples from schools and the wider education sector showing how learning is being enhanced through effective use of technology in the creative process.



The Conference was held on the Thursday 24th March at the Leicester Marriott Hotel. All you have come to know and love about the Conference was part of the one day format – including a dedicated Exhibition, networking time and hands on informative breakout sessions.
A NaaceMeet was held the night prior to the Conference which provided an opportunity to share ideas and socialise with other Naace Members and Sponsors.
