Content and Conferences at ISE

The old rules no longer apply; fast-moving times require new thinking. As we build the new normal, the ISE 2021 conference programme will equip you with the latest strategies and best practice – whichever kinds of AV solutions you work with.

With conferences devoted to areas ranging from smart building to digital learning, from smart workspaces to digital signage, we’ll keep you ahead of the curve.

ISE is the leading event for the pro AV industry – it’s where we come together to build our future. Make sure you’re a part of the conversation at ISE 2021.

Why you should get involved

  • Networking: ISE Conferences bring together the people and companies redefining the global AV industry. Experts come together to share ideas, meet future business partners and seek advice from people who’ve done it all before.
  • Knowledge and learning: In our current climate, building knowledge and up-skilling has never been more important. Our informative sessions inspire and equip you with the information and tools to lead your organisation.
  • Lead generation: Open up your organisation to a whole new audience. With thousands of AV leaders and end users tuned into our content, you’re just a message away from valuable new leads that will keep delivering long after the conference ends.
