By the time ISE 2017 closed its doors last Friday 10 February, Integrated Systems Europe had proven unequivocally why it is the international destination of choice for AV and systems integration professionals.
Commenting shortly after ISE 2016 finished, Integrated Systems Events Managing Director, Mike Blackman, said: “We listen to the industry and we listen to our exhibitors. We invest in the show and, importantly, we have the people in place to produce the type of exhibition that they tell us they need. It’s a real collaborative effort and I’d like to thank everyone that’s been involved.”
CEDIA CEO Vin Bruno said: “ISE 2017 has been the biggest and best year yet for CEDIA. We expanded our education offering and doubled bookings to more than 800. ISE 2017 also gave us a great opportunity to connect with so many of our members from around the globe. Our booth was continuously busy especially during the CEDIA Talks. The show was a huge success and we can’t wait for next year.”
While David Labuskes, CTS, CAE, RCDD, Executive Director and CEO of AVIXA, said: “It was a fantastic ISE 2017 for AVIXA, but more importantly, it was an industry-affirming show for the AV industry as a whole. As ISE and all our AVIXA shows worldwide demonstrate, this is a vibrant, growing, global community. We’re committed to being a catalyst for market growth, and this week has shown we’re on the right track.”
Beyond ISE 2018
“We constantly look at ways of improving the show structure, the format and its content. We will never be complacent and will always examine what we do in order to make it even better in the future. This has helped us to achieve year-on-year growth since we began in 2004 and why we are now the largest AV systems integration show in the world. Size is a good indication of success but listening to our exhibitors and visitors is at the heart of our past, present and future strategies.”
