Integrated Systems Europe has announced that visitor registration for ISE 2019 is now open. The show, which takes place at the RAI Amsterdam on 5-8 February 2019, features more exhibition space and a bigger conference program than ever before. It is expected to draw numbers in excess of 2018’s totals of 80,923 registered attendees and 1,296 exhibitors.
In response to the growing demand for exhibition space at the RAI Amsterdam, ISE 2019 will feature an extended Hall 5, approximately one-third larger than previously. In addition, ISE is spreading beyond the RAI by hosting a range of new and established conferences at the nearby five-star Hotel Okura.
ISE attendees will also be able to utilize the newly opened Metro line 52, which carries passengers from Amsterdam Centraal to a new Europaplein station, just in front of the RAI, in only eight minutes.
Mike Blackman, Integrated Systems Events Managing Director, commented: “The extension of Hall 5 and the opening of the new Metro station adjacent to the RAI Amsterdam will all contribute to the delivery of a great ISE experience to increased numbers of attendees and exhibitors.”
Leading trade associations and ISE co-owners AVIXA and CEDIA are building on the success of previous ISE shows by offering informative and thought-provoking content aimed at members and non-members alike.
AVIXA will host half-day ‘What’s Next’ conferences on the Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons. These will explore AV integrated experiences in higher education and enterprise environments respectively. AVIXA will also be hosting free 20-minute FlashTrack education sessions at its stand.
“AVIXA’s education program for ISE will explore the trends at the forefront of contemporary AV design,” said AVIXA CEO David Labuskes. “We’ve partnered with esteemed organizations SCHOMS, EUNIS and the AV User Group to arm AV professionals with the insight needed to elevate their performance in the marketplace.”
CEDIA will present a full program of professional development sessions. An All Access Pass will allow attendees to visit as many sessions as they would like. In addition, the association will host a series of CEDIA Talks at its stand, covering key issues in the residential installation market.
Tabatha O’Connor, CEDIA Global President and CEO, commented: “With a substantial education program from CEDIA, complete with a brand-new Home Cinema Design Workshop, core training sessions and our popular CEDIA Talks, there will be something for everyone at the show.”
There will also be some new conference programs focused on end users in specific vertical markets. Five of these conferences will be held at the Okura. New for ISE 2019 will be the Digital Cinema Summit ISE and AttractionsTECH by blooloop. Plus, there will be the debut of HTNG Insight Summit ISE which will focus on hotel and hospitality technology. Making their return will be XR Summit ISE and Digital Signage Summit ISE.
Conferences will also take place at the RAI. Monday 4 February will see the Smart Building Conference, which for 2019 takes as its theme ‘Making Smart Buildings, Making Buildings Smart.’ Also on this day will be Audio Forum, organized by Italian media brand Connessioni. New for 2019 will be AGORA, presented by MONDO | STADIA — a conference focusing on stadium and sporting venue technology, with expert panels, case studies and keynote speakers from the industry.
A further innovation for ISE 2019 will be the Main Stage. Located in Hall 8 and designed and managed by ISE partner improve, this will feature content presented by ISE, AVIXA, CEDIA and AV Magazine, as well as hosting networking events.
