#2: Create wonderfully enjoyable experiences

iPad counter display only £329

Create a constant interactive presence in your schools with our new iPad display. The display allows you to raise brand awareness in schools regarding your programmes, while increasing your booking revenues. How? You can display your landing page in the school reception area where parents have full visibility and can book online instantly. The iPad stand can be your new customer’s point of purchase in schools, offering you a constant brand visibility.

The iPad stand will be noticed not only because technology attracts people, but because the iPad stand allows you to add graphic panels for tailored branding, creating a visible brand identity. We’ll offer you a selection of interchangeable panels based on the activity being delivered in the school.

This enhances the fully-interactive multimedia capabilities of the iPad making it the perfect solution for raising awareness of& your programmes while saving money on printed materials. The iPad displays are designed to be versatile, stylish and secure, with your tablet safely locked into the stand where it is not only easily accessible to your customers but also protected.
