Mike Blackman, Managing Director of Integrated Systems Events, comment, “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 speaker sessions, 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 programme of conferences and professional development sessions, spearheaded by AVIXA and CEDIA, ISE’s co-owning trade associations. Organisers say the programme encompasses the widest range of technologies and vertical market sectors ever offered at ISE.
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, says, “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.”
AVIXA is hosting two 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,” says 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.”
