Eight corporations are looking for new technologies and solutions partners to help solve a range of challenges. That’s the premise of the ISE Open Innovation Challenge 2022, hosted at the show by ACCIÓ (the Catalonian Agency for Business Competitiveness) and Enterprise Europe Network.
The hybrid matchmaking event features challenges across seven categories: live events; broadcast and content creation; residential and smart building; hotels and hospitality; digital signage & digital out-of-home media; unified communications & education technology; and audio.
Among the participating companies, Arthur Holm is looking for partners to add software capabilities to its current product range of solutions for meeting rooms and conference spaces.
Roca Sanitarios is seeking tech innovators to help enhance online events, reinvent the physical showroom and connect water-related installations and products with building management systems.
Cellnex is looking for solutions to improve the user experience at stadiums as well as for solutions and equipment to wirelessly produce UHD TV content.
Mediapro is looking for partners to help it develop its NFT offering.
Vidneo wants to develop an in-room voice-activated interactive screen to involve the guest from the point of arrival to departure.
Sabadell City Council is looking to procure smart and sustainable technology for the city’s new projection and tourism office.
Also taking part in the Challenge are Corporació Catalana de Mitjans Audiovisuals and FilmIn.
Technology providers that have the potential to help solve these challenges can register to participate in the event and arrange physical or online meetings with the companies involved. On-site corporate challenges will take place at the Catalonia Pavilion (Stand 4A150) between 10:00 and 12:30 and between 13:00 and 15:00 each day of the show. Online meetings will take place on 8 and 9 February.
