ISE 2019 to showcase the finest in international AV
The 2019 edition of Integrated Systems Europe is set to be the largest in the show’s history, with more exhibitors, floor space, visitors and events than ever before.
ISE 2019 takes place at the RAI Amsterdam from Tuesday 5 to Friday 8 February 2019, preceded by conferences and the Opening Address on Monday 4 February. The five days are expected to attract over 80,000 registered attendees and 1,300 exhibitors. In response to the increasing demand for exhibition space, there will once again be 15 halls on the floor plan; in addition, Hall 5 will be extended, increasing its size by a third.
To help attendees to locate the products, services and companies of greatest interest to them, there will be six Technology Zones on the show floor: Audio and Live Events, Digital Signage & DooH, Education Technology, Residential Solutions, Smart Building, Unified Communications.
The conference and education programme at ISE 2019 is being presented with the tagline ‘Learn, Discover, Be Inspired’. For the first time, ISE will be extending its reach beyond the RAI throughout the show, with the nearby 5-star Hotel Okura playing host to five conferences over four days. Free shuttle buses will operate between the RAI and the Okura throughout each day.
The XR Summit will explore the latest B2B technologies, solutions and business opportunities around Augmented, Virtual and Mixed Reality.
The new half-day Digital Cinema Summit, organised in conjunction with Digital Cinema Report, will explore how digital technology is revolutionising how we produce, distribute and experience films.
Another new addition for 2019, the full-day HTNG Insight Summit ISE will discuss current issues and cutting-edge research findings from the world of hotel and hospitality technology. It is organised by ISE and trade association Hospitality Technology Next Generation.
At the RAI, the Smart Building Conference, returning for its ninth edition, will take the theme ‘Making Buildings Smart, Making Smart Buildings’ – exploring the twin themes of retrofitting smart technology into existing buildings, and creating the most sophisticated and intelligent new buildings. Taking place on the Monday, it will be followed by the ISE Opening Address.
Organised by Italian media brand Connessioni, Audio Forum will once again bring together the pro audio and installation business communities, with a focus on integrated technologies and workflows.
CEDIA to offer full education programme
Co-ISE owner CEDIA will present a full professional development programme across the four days of ISE 2019. Delegates wishing to attend multiple sessions may consider purchasing an All Access Pass, which will enable them to attend as many sessions as they wish.
On its stand, the association will be hosting CEDIA Talks – 20-minute sessions in which some of the custom installation industry’s best minds will offer insights into emerging trends and new technologies.
An innovation for 2019 is the Main Stage, located in Hall 8, which will be a specially designed theatre and presentation space. It will present free sessions produced by ISE, CEDIA and AVIXA, as well as hosting a number of special events.
Returning to ISE for 2019 will be the Closing Keynote. Taking place on the Friday morning, it promises to inform, educate and entertain. The speaker will be revealed in a few weeks’ time.
Getting to the RAI
Visitors to the RAI Amsterdam now have an additional choice of transport to and from the venue. The newly opened metro line 52 can convey passengers between the RAI and Centraal station in just eight minutes. Trains run every six minutes for much of the day (with Europaplein station the nearest station to the RAI).
“We’re delighted to offer such a full programme at ISE 2019. We have a packed schedule, from the Monday before the exhibition opens to when we close our doors on the Friday afternoon,” commented Mike Blackman, managing director of Integrated Systems Events.
“We’re looking forward to opening the doors to the home of systems integration and giving attendees their best ISE experience yet.”
