Go behind the scenes at key Barcelona installations with ISE

Tech Tours are a great way to see technologies from the ISE show floor deployed in practice. 

For ISE 2024, we are organising an expanded programme of tours taking visitors behind the scenes of major AV installations in Barcelona. Tour numbers are limited, but many of these venues are open to the public and so can be visited independently while you are staying in the city.

Tours will be added to this page as they are confirmed. Tech Tour registration will open in January, but you can register your interest in advance. Scroll to the bottom of this page for more information.

Here's a review of the ISE 2023 Tech Tours programme.
