Reflecting the continued growth of the AV business and the significance of the ISE exhibition, ISE 2017 will see more than 3,000 additional square metres of floor space added to accommodate the ever-increasing number of companies opting to exhibit at the show. There will be 135 first-time exhibitors at next month’s show.
ISE 2017 will see the addition of two new halls and two new technology focus areas. A new pavilion, to be known as Hall 14, will be a temporary structure built on the Congress Square. It will connect with the Europa Foyer, Diamond Lounge and Auditorium and provide valuable additional floor space.
Hall 9 is also new, and will be home to exhibitors addressing the burgeoning market for Smart Buildings. This space will also feature the CEDIA Smart Building Solutions Theatre sponsored by KNX. Meanwhile, Hall 12 becomes Hall 13 and, in another first, will be dedicated to the products and services associated with Education Technology, a fast developing area of the market.
For 2017 there will be some changes to the RAI Amsterdam hall layout. There will be 14 halls in total, including two new ones. The Halls have also been renamed to accommodate the expansion.
