The first Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) tradeshow was held in Geneva, Switzerland in February 2004.
Since then, the annual event has grown from 120 exhibitors and 3, 500 visitors, to a record-breaking 16th year that saw Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) 2019 welcome more than 1, 300 exhibitors and over 81, 000 visitors through the doors of the Amsterdam RAI. Of these, a remarkable 32% were attending ISE for the first time. Wednesday saw the largest ever one-day attendance figure for any show at the Amsterdam RAI, and the number of attendees on Friday passed 20,000 for the first time.
This confirmed the position of Integrated Systems Europe as the largest AV and systems integration show in the world.
For the first time, the nearby Hotel Okura was used as an ISE venue, hosting five of the show’s ten conferences. New additions for 2019 included Hospitality Tech Summit by HTNG; Digital Cinema Summit, produced in conjunction with Digital Cinema Report; AGORA, for the sports venue market, produced by MONDO | STADIA; and visitor attraction and theme park specialist blooloop returned to ISE for a second year with its new attractionsTECH conference.
An innovation for ISE 2019 was the Main Stage theatre in Hall 8. This was the venue for high-level thought leadership presentations, best practice case studies and expert-led panel discussions, many of which were ‘standing-room only’. Content was provided by AVIXA, CEDIA, AV Magazine and ISE itself, and the presentations were live-streamed to the ISE website.
Maintaining its reputation for connecting new technologies, companies and end-user industries, Integrated Systems Europe will continue to present an exciting show floor, featuring thousands of product launches, as well as a packed education and events programme.
ISE 2021 will be held in Barcelona from 2-5 February.
