After its European launch at ISE 2011, InfoComm International is bringing its Future Trends Summit back to the Amsterdam show in 2012, with an all-new program of sessions designed to educate, to inspire, and to inform the debate about the future of the professional AV and electronic systems business.
As in 2011, the Summit will be co-located with Integrated Systems Europe and take place the day before the show (January 30) with a starting time of 11:00 allowing delegates to fly into Amsterdam on the morning of the event.
Scott Wills, InfoComm’s Director of International Education and Member Services (pictured) sees the Summit as the perfect way for the association to engage ISE attendees in a range of conversations about what shape the pro-AV industry will take in the years ahead.
“Predicting the future is never easy, but our array of experienced, knowledgeable and thought-provoking speakers will ensure that delegates come away from the Future Trends Summit with valuable new insights for their businesses,” said Wills.
Among the topics to be presented are emerging technologies in high-resolution displays, the future of audio networking, the growing role of standards in the systems integration industry, and the relationship between pro AV and cloud computing.
The Summit will end at 17:30, with all delegates then invited to ISE’s inaugural Keynote Address – to be delivered by Gerhard Schulz of Ingram Micro – followed by an opening reception jointly hosted by InfoComm and CEDIA.
“It all adds up to the best curtain-raiser for ISE we have ever staged,” said Wills. “We expect a day of informed presentations, lively debate, and unrivalled networking opportunities. Once again, our Future Trends Summit provides the perfect business prelude not just to Integrated Systems Europe, but to InfoComm’s program of education sessions that takes place throughout the show’s opening hours.”
