Special Interest Group Programmes

ISE’s Special Interest Group programmes are designed to bring attendees from specific key vertical market sectors to ISE. Each of them involves helping end-user technology buyers to meet technology vendors and solution partners.

Special Interest Group visits are the result of formal agreements between ISE and a variety of associations, media partners, companies and consultants. These partners invite senior executives to visit the show and to participate in an organised ‘ISE experience’. These programmes are tailored to meet the information needs of the visiting executives with planned stand visits, presentations, networking events and dinners.

The Special Interest Groups at ISE 2020 were organised by:

  • ACCIÓ, part of government body Catalonia Trade & Investment
  • AV-Solution Partner, a German-speaking media technology network
  • AV User Group, end-users of AV systems and services from multiple UK markets
  • The British Institute of Interior Design
  • Grupo eventoplus, a Spanish media brand for event agencies
  • PFM, Premises and Facilities Management magazine
  • SCHOMS, UK and Ireland university technology specialists
  • SIEC, Italian systems integrators

The Special Interest Group initiative broadens the show’s attendee base, helps important groups of technology buyers to make more informed purchasing decisions, and drives sales for ISE exhibitors. It’s one more example of how ISE is about Making Deeper Connections.

ISE continues to work with some of these partners in 2021; the Special Interest Group programme will resume in earnest at ISE 2022.
