Integrated Systems Events has released further details of ISE Digital, part of ISE Live and Online – which includes the Barcelona and London in person events – taking place online June 1-2 and running concurrently with the Fira de Barcelona regional physical attendance segment. Powered by Cisco technology, and curated by The Next Web (TNW), AVIXA, CEDIA and ISE partners, the two-day “festival of content” is said to allow attendees to create their own “playlist” from the available sessions.
The latest news and innovations from the world of AV are set to be revealed from industry names including Presenting Show Partner KNX, Headline Partners Bosch, LANG, Panasonic and Shure – plus other leading brands including Canon, Datapath, Genelec, Lenovo, MA Lighting, Savant, Sennheiser and WolfVision. In addition, courtesy of Headline Partner ACCIÓ, attendees can meet some of the most exciting start-ups.
Gerri Elliott, EVP and chief customer and partner officer at Cisco, explained: “Our new Virtual Experiences platform, powered by Cisco, gives great partners like ISE all of the tools they need to create engaging, secure and productive virtual and hybrid event experiences. We are inspired by ISE’s mission to ‘help the world get back to business’ and look forward to supporting them at this event and moving forward.”
The lead host at ISE Digital is Anouk Vleugels, publisher at The Next Web and a self-proclaimed ‘Digital Centaur Evangelist’. As a creative tech enthusiast and seasoned journalist, Anouk has her finger on the pulse of innovation and will be joined by co-hosts Már Másson Maack, editor of Growth Quarters at TNW and Callum Booth, editor of Plugged at TNW. They will present sessions from the main stage at the Fira and from a specially created virtual studio.
Mike Blackman, Managing Director of Integrated Systems Events, added: “The unexpected has challenged us all but there is hope and now is the time to focus on the future. ISE Live and Online is an opportunity to raise the curtain on our industry and to feel part of it again. Whether you join digitally or in person, expect to be inspired as we look forward together and get back to what we love.”
The ISE Digital platform will be available to view from 25 May and the ISE Digital event will be live on 1-2 June. Registration for ISE Digital is free.

CEDIA on the Main Stage:
Day 1: Recovery – Navigating the Post-Pandemic Landscape. This panel discussion will focus on how the pandemic has affected supply chains and how to mitigate these impacts; the explosion of media offerings for the home and what the integrator needs to know to be able to deliver the best experience to the client; and how an integrator can take advantage of wellness, sustainability and assisted living – all of which have been bubbling up over the past few years.
Day 2: The Integrator of 2025 – What’s Next? Based on a new CEDIA white paper, this discussion will cover the four segments that are of critical importance to the occupants of a residence – presence, comfort, safety, sustainability. The panellists will discuss why these four are most impactful; holistic design and why it’s so critical for integrators to learn how these segments will change in the next few years; and what specific skills are going to be most helpful to integrators.
