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 2022 are 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 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.



ACCIÓ is the Catalonian Government Agency for Business Competitiveness. Through its innovation and internationalisation programmes, it provides services to 24,000 companies a year.
