The ISE Team would like thank everyone who helped make this year’s tradeshow such a success. When the doors closed on Friday 12 February ISE 2016 had received 65,686 registered attendees. This ensures that it was not only the biggest and best ISE exhibition in its history but that ISE is now officially recognised as the world’s largest AV and systems integration exhibition. Over the course of the show’s duration ISE cemented its reputation as the destination of choice for international AV and systems integration professionals. This was made possible through the contributions of many companies, organisations and individuals, including:- 1,103 exhibitors; ISE 2016 Sponsors; Media Partners; Event Partners; Technology Partners; the RAI; CEDIA; InfoComm International; ISE Staff and ISE Suppliers. Over four days ISE 2016 provided visitors with the definitive technology showcase for AV products and techniques.

ISE gears up for FOUR DAYS of ISE 2016
Integrated Systems Events has announced that its 2016 event will take place over four consecutive days at the RAI exhibition centre in Amsterdam - an increase of one day on previous exhibitions held at the venue.
This decision, stated ISE Managing Director Mike Blackman, was largely due to the event’s “rapid rise in size and prominence.”
“This move has largely been driven by the demands of our exhibitors and attendees,” Blackman commented. “Quite simply, the extremely high attendance at the show, particularly on the first two days, saw increasing requests from exhibitors to have more time to spend with attendees.
Exhibiting at Integrated Systems Europe 2016 will place your company at the centre of the world’s commercial and residential AV and systems integration community.
