Attendees with an invitation code can register for the exhibition free of charge; these are available from exhibitors and also distributed on official ISE media. Registration is at the ISE website

Mike Blackman, managing director of Integrated Systems Events, commented: “As the
meeting place for this global industry, ISE 2020 promises innovative new solutions,
exciting show features, enriching learning opportunities and unbeatable networking
opportunities. ISE is all about Making Deeper Connections – with people, with
technologies and with the industry as a whole.”

The Opening Address will take place in the RAI Forum on Monday 10th February, the evening before the exhibition opens. The Address will be given by Duncan Wardle, formerly head of innovation and creativity at Disney, who specialises in helping companies release the creativity within their workforces. Among his clients are brands such as Apple, Coca-Cola, Ford and McKinsey.

Attendees are invited to ‘Learn. Discover. Be Inspired’ with ISE 2020’s programme of conferences and professional development sessions, spearheaded by AVIXA and CEDIA, ISE’s co-owning trade associations. The programme encompasses the widest range of technologies and vertical market sectors ever offered at ISE.

AVIXA is hosting two highly regarded half-day conferences: the AVIXA Higher Ed AV
Conference, produced in association with SCHOMS and EUNIS; and the AVIXA
Enterprise AV Conference, produced in association with AV User Group.

“At ISE 2020, AVIXA’s education programme will explore where the AV industry is
heading by revealing growth opportunities, technology trends, and emerging markets,”
said AVIXA chief executive officer Dave Labuskes, CTS, CAE, RCDD. “For one week
in one city, ISE brings together thousands of AV professionals – from individuals
beginning their careers to industry experts – to learn from each other to continue to push
the industry forward.”

CEDIA will be offering a four-day professional development programme featuring
numerous subject experts. Commencing with its new Cybersecurity Workshop at the
Hotel Okura, the association will host a full set of paid-for education sessions in the
Elicium building; attendees can once again take advantage of an All Access Pass.
In addition, ISE 2020 sees the launch of the CEDIA Design & Build Conference, aimed
at architects, interior designers and other design & build professionals in the residential space.

Tabatha O’Connor, CEDIA global president and CEO, commented: “At ISE 2020, we’re
bringing a whole host of new initiatives to make CEDIA education and training more
accessible than ever before. Not only is ISE the perfect destination to enhance industry
knowledge, but it is the perfect meeting point to connect with new and existing CEDIA
Members, and to discover the global trends likely to impact upon our residential industry.
We’re looking forward to returning to Amsterdam in February for another inspiring
