InfoComm International, co-owner of the Integrated Systems Europe tradeshow, has issued its call for presenters for its education programme at this year’s Integrated Systems Europe tradeshow (ISE 2013). Contracted ISE 2013 exhibitors and associated individuals are being encouraged to submit proposals for seminars to be hosted at either InfoComm’s Future Trends Summit or as part of the InfoComm University programme at ISE’s Education Zone.
Proposals should be submitted on the Call For Presenters Form (www.infocomm.org/globalcall) by 31 July 2012. Selections will then be made by November 2012. The Future Trends Summit will take place on Monday 28 January, while the InfoComm University sessions will be held on the ISE show days of 29-31 January. Both events are at the Amsterdam RAI, Amsterdam, Netherlands. For the Future Trends Summit, seminars should be on topics related to future technology trends, trends in the use and application of AV, or other items that will affect the industry in the coming months and years. These seminar slots are typically covered in a 45 to 50 minute session or dynamic according to content. InfoComm University seminars are set to take place during the three show days and may be on any topic pertinent to the AV industry. Seminar slots are 50 minutes in length, but provision can be made for longer seminars with in-depth content. “InfoComm’s educational offerings at ISE 2012 were attended by almost 600 delegates – a record at ISE,” comments Scott Wills, CTS-D, CTS-I, InfoComm’s director of international education and member services. “Because InfoComm has a reputation for providing unbiased, vendor-neutral educational content, hosting a seminar at either the Future Trends Summit or InfoComm University gives companies a great opportunity to build trust in their brands, or for individuals to enhance their status in the industry.” Companies or individuals are encouraged to submit several proposals, as this presents a broader range for selection and a higher likelihood that one of their topics will fit the InfoComm programme. Presentations must be educational in nature and not biased toward any company or product, nor should they contain a sales pitch. There is no charge to present on behalf of InfoComm. Presenters typically cover their own travel or other expenses. InfoComm arranges for room setup, equipment, and manages marketing and promotion for the session.
