New for ISE 2019, the Main Stage will host free-to-attend educational and thought leadership presentations, produced by AVIXA, CEDIA, ISE and AV Magazine. Located in a central position in Hall 8 and featuring a bespoke design from ISE partner improve, the Main Stage will be a key component of the show’s ‘Learn, Discover, Be Inspired’ initiative.
AVIXA’s Main Stage programme will include sessions exploring how today’s integrated experiences are being designed, created and installed. Taking shortlisted entries in the prestigious AV Awards 2018 as inspiration, AVIXA’s sessions will highlight companies leading their respective fields. They will give attendees the opportunity to learn from installations in connected stadia, hospitality, retail and other vertical markets.
Technology integrators who won a 2018 EMEA CEDIA Award will be partnering up with brand representatives to talk through their award-winning projects during CEDIA’s Main Stage. The 20-minute sessions will allow the integrator to explain the challenges they faced and how they overcame these to deliver a solution that allows their clients to have their best moments in life from the comfort of their own home: Life Lived Best at Home.
The editorial team at AV Magazine will be hosting a series of ground-breaking end-user-focused events on the Main Stage. Moderated by AV Magazine editor Clive Couldwell, the sessions will cover issues that are crucial to the success of businesses in the industry. These vendor- and product-neutral sessions will be made up of panel debates, ‘wow’ presentations, case studies and Q&As.
Curated by Smart Building Conference Chair Bob Snyder, the ISE sessions on the Main Stage will feature presentations and discussions with leading technologists, consultants, authors and business leaders. They will provide an opportunity to reflect on some of the key technology issues and trends affecting the AV systems integration industry.
