Manufacturers’ Forum to Make ISE Debut — Gary Kayye to Moderate

rAVe Founder Gary Kayye will help bring a high-profile panel of manufacturer expertise together on the first day of ISE 2008 in Amsterdam in January 2008. The first ISE Manufacturer Forum will follow the successful formula applied at past InfoComm International shows, and will be free for all ISE Attendees and Manufacturers to attend.

Running from 4pm to 5:30pm on Tuesday 29 January at the ISE Presentation Theatre, the ISE Manufacturers Forum will see some of our industry’s most prominent figures sharing a table to discuss the future of the systems integration business.

Panelists for the event will include:

-Andrew Edwards, President of Extron

-Allan Bjørnstad, CTO EMEA of Tandberg

-Randy Klein, Senior VP of Crestron

-Speakercraft President Jeremy Burkhardt

-A.C. Ter Meulen, President of Mitsubishi Europe

-Dirk Hendrickx, General Manager of Barco Presentation

The event will be moderated by Gary Kayye of rAVe Publications, who as he does at InfoComm, will invite comment from panellists AND the audience in attendance — this will be YOUR chance to ask these manufacturers anything you want to know about their vision for the future of the AV markets.

Says Gary: “The Manufacturers Forum is always a highlight at InfoComm. It gives our high-profile panel the chance to demonstrate their vision of the future of AV, and attendees a unique opportunity to fire questions – awkward or otherwise!

There’s always a wide range of opinion and there are always a few surprises in store. I’m really excited about bringing the Forum to ISE for the first time, and to anyone who has not attended one of the InfoComm sessions in the past, I can promise them an hour of healthy debate that they will find as valuable as it is entertaining.”
