Making Deeper Connections at ISE 2020
Visitor registration opens; exciting new features; most conferences ever; opening address confirmed
Visitor registration opens today for ISE 2020, which is set to be the most compelling Integrated Systems Europe show ever. Taking place at the RAI Amsterdam on 11-14 February 2020, ISE is the world’s leading event for the professional systems integration channel and end-users of AV technologies and solutions.
Attendees with an invitation code can register for the exhibition free of charge; these are available from exhibitors and also distributed on official ISE media. Registration is at the ISE website, which has been fully updated with the latest ISE 2020 information.
Mike Blackman, Managing Director of Integrated Systems Events, commented: “As the meeting-place for this global industry, ISE 2020 promises innovative new solutions, exciting show features, enriching learning opportunities and unbeatable networking opportunities. ISE is all about Making Deeper Connections – with people, with technologies and with the industry as a whole.”
Renowned for its world-class speakers, the Opening Address will take place in the RAI Forum on Monday 10 February, the evening before the exhibition opens. The Address will be given by Duncan Wardle, formerly Head of Innovation and Creativity at Disney, who specialises in helping companies release the creativity within their workforces. Among his blue-chip clients are brands such as Apple, Coca-Cola, Ford and McKinsey.
Attendees are invited to ‘Learn. Discover. Be Inspired’ with ISE 2020’s unsurpassed programme of conferences and professional development sessions, spearheaded by AVIXA and CEDIA, ISE’s co-owning trade associations. The programme encompasses the widest range of technologies and vertical market sectors ever offered at ISE.
AVIXA is hosting two highly regarded half-day conferences: the AVIXA Higher Ed AV Conference, produced in association with SCHOMS and EUNIS; and the AVIXA Enterprise AV Conference, produced in association with AV User Group.
“At ISE 2020, AVIXA’s education programme will explore where the AV industry is heading by revealing growth opportunities, technology trends, and emerging markets,” said AVIXA Chief Executive Officer Dave Labuskes, CTS, CAE, RCDD. “For one week in one city, ISE brings together thousands of AV professionals – from individuals beginning their careers to industry experts – to learn from each other to continue to push the industry forward.”
CEDIA will be offering a four-day professional development programme featuring numerous subject experts. Commencing with its new Cybersecurity Workshop at the Hotel Okura, the association will host a full set of paid-for education sessions in the Elicium building; attendees can once again take advantage of an All Access Pass.
In addition, ISE 2020 sees the launch of the CEDIA Design & Build Conference, aimed at architects, interior designers and other design & build professionals in the residential space.
Tabatha O’Connor, CEDIA Global President and CEO, commented: “At ISE 2020, we’re bringing a whole host of new initiatives to make CEDIA education and training more accessible than ever before. Not only is ISE the perfect destination to enhance industry knowledge, but it is the perfect meeting point to connect with new and existing CEDIA Members, and to discover the global trends likely to impact upon our residential industry. We’re looking forward to returning to Amsterdam in February for another inspiring show.”
Reflecting the show’s increasing relevance to end-users of AV technology, the ISE 2020 conference programme is more extensive than ever, with no fewer than 13 events taking place across the week of the show. All the conferences held at ISE 2019 will return, while new for 2020 is the Control Rooms Summit ISE, produced in association with the International Critical Control Rooms Association.
