80,923 visitors welcomed to ISE 2018
Integrated Systems Event 2018 (ISE 2018) was the most successful Integrated Systems Europe yet, and with the stellar list of exhibitors and new visitors it's no surprise. 80,923 different visitors were welcomed to an event full of great theatres hosting insightful talks, the latest AV and systems integration technologies and over 1,200 exhibitors including companies like Interspace Industries, LG Electronics and Nexus 21. The opening address was delivered by Carlo Ratti, an architect who was listed as one of the ‘50 people who will change the world', according to Wired magazine, and rightly so.
The emphasis on design and AV was displayed during co-owner AVIXA's TIDE conference, and the rise of smart cities discussed during the Smart Building Conference. Together exhibitors and visitors went on a journey to understand and further learn the ways in which design affects every single aspect of our business and how we can be innovative and effective when approaching design. ISE had a slew of discussions and trend observations people were anticipating for the year: a growth in IP and the crossover between broadcast and AV, the increase of smart home devices and ubiquitousness of 4K and IoT.
The quick evolution and automation of the tech industry begs the question of what we can do to tackle our exponential growth in inventions and innovations and how this will affect the world. With a significant increase in the percentage of visitors from all around the world (particularly Netherlands, Germany and the UK), it has been an exciting event that offers people a chance to speak to integrators, specifiers and end users to understand firsthand how people meet the challenges of the modern workplace with the latest technologies.
“It's been a great show that has delivered on all fronts”, said Integrated Systems Events Managing Director Mike Blackman, thanking the attendees, exhibitors, partners and co-owners AVIXA and CEDIA, “This combination has made ISE what it is today and ensures that we are able to build on our success year on year.”
