The grand finale: Friday at ISE 2019

Some tradeshows schedule their most exciting content at the start – but ISE has gone to great lengths to ensure that Friday 8 February is packed with compelling features right up until the show closes.

The undoubted highlight of the day is the ISE 2019 Closing Keynote, given by leading live events mastermind Tupac Martir of Satore Studio. This takes place in the RAI Forum at 12:00. The keynote will explore the intersection of technology and creativity, and how each can be used to get the most out of the other.

Alternatively, attendees can spend their morning at the attractionsTECH conference at the Hotel Okura. Produced by attractions industry specialists blooloop, its theme is how theme parks, museums and heritage attractions can be transformed by technology. It will feature expert insights about future technology directions, as well as case studies from leading industry operators.

AVIXA has a full day of free 20-minute FlashTrack sessions taking place on Stand 13-N110. Subjects address both personnel matters, with sessions on training paths and on mentoring; and technical topics such as AV/IT network integration and artificial intelligence.

For those interested in home cinema, CEDIA is hosting a free CEDIA Designer Workshop at 11:00. The CEDIA Designer software package can create a technically perfect home cinema or media room with full documentation, rendered to-scale visuals and a 3D CAD model.

The Drone Arena in Hall 14 (Stands 14-A100 and 14-A130) will be offering drone demonstrations, training sessions and the final chance for attendees to win a drone. It is presented by Stampede and sister division Exertis Pro AV Solutions.

On the Main Stage (Stand 8-E400) there is a full day of presentations and debates. Among the topics of ISE-hosted presentations will be blockchain and digital signage; simplifying complex IT integrations; and ‘Everything-as-a-Service’. AVIXA will be discussing AV market trends, while CEDIA will be offering tips on how to win a CEDIA Award. Among AV Magazine’s programme are two informative panel debates: one will address the implications of the latest RF spectrum sell-off for the audio industry; the other, running from 15:00-16:00, will bring ISE 2019 to a conclusion by grappling with the thorny topic of AV network security.

And, of course, it’s likely that there will be fewer attendees on the Friday than on the other days, so you will be able to navigate the six Technology Zones and the 15 halls of ISE 2019 more easily. What more reason do you need?
