ISE firstsLooking back on some of the innovations and milestones in ISE's history

The first edition of Integrated Systems Europe took place in Geneva in 2004. After several years in Amsterdam, the 2021 show will take place in Barcelona for the first time.

ISE is a show of firsts. As the leading show in the industry, it has for many years been the preferred location for our exhibitors to launch new products and solutions. That’s why ISE has seen many industry firsts over the years – important major new solutions and even whole new areas of technology.

On this page, we’re bringing together some of the most significant ISE firsts. We’re also sharing memories of the first appearances of well-known show features.
