Liberty Comms, the specialist technology communications consultancy, today announced that it has been appointed by specialist media investment and advisory firm IBIS Capital and education technology company Edxus Group to promote the launch of EdTech Europe.
An exclusive one day summit to be held at the London Business School on 14th June 2013, EdTech Europe will address the current industry and investment trends in Education Technology and e-Learning for both the academic and professional learning sectors.

As well as promoting EdTech Europe and the EdTech Europe 20, driving ticket sales and ranking entries amongst the entrepreneurial and investor communities, Liberty will also build the profiles of both IBIS Capital and Edxus in the education technology and e-learning industries across Europe and in the US.
