ISE 2024 - the future of retail

ISE will take place in Barcelona from 30 January to 2 February 2024

Since it began in 2004, Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) - the world's premier exhibition for professional audio visual (pro AV) and systems integration - has grown in size, strength and influence to become an industry-defining event. Every year, ISE brings together professionals, innovators and thought leaders across multiple industry sectors from around the world.

Celebrating 20 Years of Innovation

ISE’s journey from its humble beginnings in Geneva, to becoming the definitive event it is today has been a remarkable success story. Over the past two decades, ISE has served as a catalyst for groundbreaking technological advances, fostered meaningful connections and dialogue and propelled the systems integration industry to new heights.

 “This special 20th anniversary edition of ISE will be our biggest ever event, with an expanded show floor which is already 17% bigger than last year, two new halls, over 80 new exhibitors currently confirmed and several special features and attractions to mark the occasion, including an Anniversary Treasure Hunt. We also are planning a number of special activities throughout Barcelona, including extending our partnership with the Barcelona Llum lighting festival – watch out for more news in the coming weeks,” said Mike Blackman, Managing Director at Integrated Systems Events.

Discover the Future of Retail

The rise of online shopping has had a negative effect on many traditional ‘bricks-and-mortar’ retailers. But the smart retailers are the ones that have responded by embracing technology. Some are doing this to make shopping more of an experience – luring consumers away from their phones and computers with a ‘wow’ factor that the online world can’t replicate. Others are using technology to create a more seamless and/or personalised experience – where the communication starts online and ends up guiding the consumer inside the store.

A major element of this is digital signage. What began as simply a more efficient alternative to printed posters and other point-of-sale material has become a vehicle for improved customer engagement, better customer service – and improved sales, so bringing a rapid return on investment.

Digital Signage Summit returns to ISE as on Wednesday 31 January to explore trends, policies and technologies driving the sector. The leading strategy event for the Digital Signage and DooH (Digital-out-of-Home) marketplace is co-produced by invidis and Integrated Systems Events.

On the show floor, the Digital Signage & DOOH Technology Zone is back in Hall 6.  Here visitors will find all kinds of signage and displays – not just regular flat panels, but transparent, flexible, large-scale and non-rectangular displays. Visitors will also find touchscreens, voice-controlled displays, and displays you control by gesture. There is an extensive selection of display companies here, but visitors will also find giants of the display world elsewhere on the show floor, particularly in Hall 3.

Of course, it’s not just about the displays. Also within the Digital Signage and DooH Zone are suppliers covering the entire digital signage solutions ecosystem, including digital signage software, media players and display controllers.
