Your opportunity to join in with the innovative Surpass Community

The Surpass Conference, presented by BTL, is an annual gathering for members of the innovative Surpass Community. The Conference brings assessment experts together to attend presentations and workshops from industry thought-leaders, share experiences and ideas on testing technology, and network with others in the sector.

Delegates attend to learn about the latest features in the market-leading Surpass Platform, share their knowledge and experience, and help each other make the most of this highly respected assessment authoring and delivery platform.

Why should I attend?

In addition to working with BTL to shape the roadmap of Surpass, delegates look at the future of assessment on a global scale, and how our community can promote best practice in assessment.

Networking is a fundamental activity at the Surpass Conference, with a range of delegates from directors to candidates engaging in intelligent discussion. Everyone who attends shares something in common, and by working together, the community can significantly improve the assessment experience for everyone.

The 2020 Conference was award-winning, taking gold in the ‘Best Online Event’ category at the 2021 UK Business Awards.
