Registration to visit ISE 2022 is open

ISE 2022, due to take place 1-4 February in its new home at the Fira de Barcelona Gran Via, has opened its visitor registration to the international AV and systems integration community.

The show aims to reunite the AV industry and provide attendees with the chance to interact and experience new technologies and solutions in person.

Ensuring the event will be as safe as possible, ISE has welcomed a new development for 2022 with a paperless approach to visitor registration in the form of digital badges issues via the new ISE app. The app will also contain additional information and content around the show.

“As an in-person event, we are uniquely placed to bring all elements of the industry together under one roof,” said Mike Blackman, managing director of Integrated Systems Events. “In the build-up to our return to Barcelona, along with our co-owners AVIXA and CEDIA, we have worked hard to ensure that ISE 2022 offers the industry a truly worthwhile experience – showcasing innovation, becoming inspired by some of the brightest in the business, and most importantly, meeting up after so many difficult months apart.”

The show floor has been spread across five halls and organised into five technology zones to give a more improved visitor experience. The five technology zones are Audio (Hall 7), Digital Signage & DooH (Hall 6), new Lighting & Staging (Hall 7) featuring special Lighting Demo Zone, new Residential & Smart Building (Hall 2) newly combined zones, and new Unified Communication & Education Technology (Hall 2) newly combined zones.

So far, 700 companies have committed to exhibiting at ISE 2022.

ISE’s Sound Xperience is a new innovation for 2022. Taking place in a dedicated cinema complex just metres away from the exhibition centre, Sound Xperience offers 12 uniquely configured rooms to showcase audio with depth, accuracy and pin-point clarity.

There will also be plenty of opportunities for professional development throughout the five-day show. With a mix of paid-for and free sessions, the 2022 thought-leadership content programme covers a wide variety of industry topics.

Starting on Monday with two, full-day conferences, the programme will take place on three dedicated stages within Hall 1. The Forum, a free-to-access feature commencing with daily keynote sessions, will be hosted by futurist Amelia Kallman. There will also be Spanish content in the AV Experience Zone, produced with AVIXA, while the Catalan Pavilion, in association with ACCIO, promises a great experience for visitors from the local region.

The ISE Conference programme is as follows:

Smart Building Conference – Monday 31 January

Digital Signage Summit – Monday 31 January

Control Rooms Summit – Tuesday 1 February

New: Smart Workplace Summit – Tuesday 1 February

Digital Learning Summit – Wednesday 2 February

New: Live Events Summit – Thursday 3 February

New: Superyacht Technology Conference – Friday 4 February

“Along with the whole professional home integration community, CEDIA is very much looking forward to ISE 2022 in Barcelona,” said Giles Sutton, interim co-CEO at CEDIA. “The event next year marks the beginning of a new and exciting era for our industry as we look beyond the challenges of the past 18 months to a brighter future for us all.

“CEDIA will be running an extensive professional development programme at the show, providing a wide range of opportunities for attendees to learn new skills, grow their knowledge and build a vibrant fulfilling career path in the industry. We can’t wait to re-connect with visitors from across the world at the Fira Gran Via in February 2022.”

On Thursday 2 February, a select group of technology students from universities and technical colleges across Europe are invited for a hosted visit as part of AV Career Day, an initiative designed to showcase career opportunities throughout the AV industry and ensure the next generation of AV professionals has the skills to meet the challenges of the future.

ISE organisers are also working closely with the city of Barcelona, the Catalan government, and Spanish authorities to bring some social event and features designed to showcase ISE’s new home. More details will be revealed soon.

The Inavation Awards, produced by our sister title, Inavate, will also make it Barcelona debut. Long associated with ISE, these awards celebrate the projects and technologies deployed by systems integrators, consultants and technology managers. The Inavation Awards will take place on Tuesday 1 February.

Covid safety measures will remain under constant review and appropriate plans will be put in place for the show. Potential measure could include the wearing of face masks, social distancing, and provision of enhanced sanitisation measures throughout the venue. A negative test, proof of vaccination or proof of recovery will be required to access the venue.

Registration to attend ISE 2022 in Barcelona is now open.
