ISE has announced details of its thought leadership programme for the 2022 show in Barcelona that it says will empower attendees to “ignite the future”. The show takes place at the Fira de Barcelona Gran Vía on 1-4 February 2022, with the ISE conference programme running from Monday 31 January through to Friday 4 February.
“A visit to ISE is much more than the exciting show floor,” said ISE managing director, Mike Blackman. “Not only do visitors get to see the latest innovations from world-class brands in pro AV, but there is also a huge choice in inspiring education and conference programmes which uncover hidden gems, showcase a world of opportunities, and address vital issues that today’s organisations face in getting back to business.”
There will be seven conferences throughout ISE week that will target key vertical markets served by the pro AV industry covering topics such as creating safe, sustainable, smart buildings; innovations re-shaping the workplace; the new agenda in digital signage; and exploring the strategies, learning models and trends that are driving the deployment of digital learning technologies in universities, schools, corporate bodies and training facilities.
AVIXA will be producing Spanish language content at the AV Experience Zone that will provide insight on ‘cutting-edge AV solutions and the latest industry trends’ as well as showcasing AV projects and customer testimonials from ‘the most talented and experienced professionals in the sector’. This second edition of the AV Experience Zone is aimed at end-users from major vertical markets, professional technicians, and includes sessions for students across its four-day programme.
“AVIXA is excited for the return of the AV Experience Zone at ISE; a line-up of free sessions presented in Spanish throughout the week that will examine the latest trends in pro AV,” said Sarah Joyce, chief global officer, AVIXA. “We’ll explore topics such as unified communications for the corporate and hospitality sectors, new experiences through creativity and digital signage solutions for retail, digital solutions for education, AV’s role in the evolution of traditional broadcasting to new platforms, and much more.”
CEDIA will host its own professional development programme together with workshops and sessions, as Matt Nimmons, CEDIA EMEA’s managing director, explained: “The long-term success of our industry is reliant upon a well-trained and professional workforce. At ISE 2022, we have put together a terrific slate of sessions that will help our community grow their skills and make sure integrators can be at the top of their game, whatever technical or business challenges are coming down the line. Thanks to our All-Access Training Pass, these training courses are also great value for money.”
Mike Blackman concluded: “Our programme is designed to provide inspiration and support for every level of the business. We cover all areas of the fabulous world of AV, from smart buildings, cities, homes and workplaces to digital signage, learning, live events and super yachts. There’s so much to experience at ISE; I can’t wait to see you there.”
