Why should I attend the local ISE Events?

Reconnect with the AV community in Europe’s leading AV hubs

Our exhibitors have made it clear that there is a desire to get the industry together, but on a local level.  We are targeting Europe’s key markets across the AV sector and aim to deliver a quality audience who want to meet potential suppliers, existing customers and network with their peers.”

Mike Blackman, Managing Director, Integrated Systems Events

The ISE live events will allow you to reconnect with the AV community and with international exhibitors in Europe’s leading AV hubs.

Each local event will provide two days of networking in a safe, relaxed, and intimate environment – perfect for meetings.

Each event gives you opportunity to build a new set of ‘high worth’ connections including leading installers, integrators, and end users.

At the ISE Fira Barcelona event there will be the live production of exclusive Keynotes and RISE Spotlight content curated by The Next Web (TNW) and showcased on the venue’s Main Stage.

Each event will bring you together with some of the world’s leading technology and solutions providers, all keen to demonstrate their latest innovations.

“I believe this approach reflects what we’ve heard, a strong desire for prudent and safe face-to-face gatherings that can reinforce business connections and initiate growth.  We are honoured to be in a position to offer these to our community.”

David Labuskes, CEO, AVIXA

“The success of ISE has been built on broad industry support and that is the reason why we have taken these decisions.  We look forward to a debut show where our community can all be together again.”

Giles Sutton, joint CEO, CEDIA
