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 programmes are tailored to meet the information needs of the visiting executives with planned stand visits, presentations, networking events and dinners.
