ISE 2022 arrives in Barcelona with new conferences and exhibitors from all over the audiovisual landscape – rAVe [PUBS]


The world’s largest audiovisual and systems integration trade show arrives in Barcelona from May 10 to 13, 2022.

Speaking at a press briefing today, Integrated Systems Events Managing Director Mike Blackman said, “I am delighted and honored to be here today five years after Integrated Systems Events , and its co-owners AVIXA and CEDIA, have decided to move the Integrated Systems Europe show to Barcelona. After 16 years in Amsterdam, it was time for us to find a new home for our show, and in just two weeks, ISE 2022 will open its doors at Gran Vía, Fira de Barcelona.

ISE is a showcase for cutting-edge visual and audio products and solutions where manufacturers and service providers will showcase the latest professional audio visual innovations developed for the commercial and residential market sectors.

More than 800 exhibitors, spread over six technological zones distributed in five halls of the Gran Vía, will present the latest in versatile audiovisual. From the commercial AV sector, attendees will be able to explore the latest innovative AV technologies produced for numerous market sectors operating in learning, live events, performance, retail, conferencing and collaboration, security and health, to name a few. Some of the top brands exhibiting at ISE 2022 include Alfalite, Barco, Christie, Google, KNX, LANG, Microsoft, Panasonic, Samsung, Shure, Sony, and Zoom.

On the residential side, visitors will be able to see the latest flat screen TVs, ceiling speakers, projectors, projection screens, movie theaters, lighting and security systems. Some of the major residential brands exhibiting at ISE 2022 include Artcoustic, Crestron, L-Acoustics, KNX, Rako Controls, Sony, Storm Audio and many more.

ISE brings together the global audiovisual community. In addition to invaluable networking opportunities, it has a lot to offer exhibitors and attendees. A five-day conference program runs throughout the week and covers topics ranging from retail technology to control rooms, live events, education and even superyachts. More than 150 thought leaders and experts are confirmed to participate in the daily programme.

Professional development opportunities are offered through certification and apprenticeship programs, organized by AVIXA and CEDIA, both locally and in the city.

“AVIXA is proud to co-own ISE with CEDIA and we couldn’t be more excited about our new home in Barcelona,” said David Labuskes, CEO of AVIXA. “We look forward to continuing our strong partnership with the City of Barcelona, ​​as well as strengthening our relationship with Fira de Barcelona. These relationships were formed before the pandemic and strengthened during it. I’m sure they will only go from strength to strength as we look to an incredible future for the AV industry and the ISE show.

Daryl Friedman, President and Global CEO of CEDIA comments, “In-person trade shows are truly the lifeblood of our industry and have been sorely missed over the past two years. Yet at the same time, people around the world have discovered that their homes, through beautifully integrated technology, can be a central hub for all aspects of their lives – so the timing of ISE’s return might not be better. What we have prepared for the CEDIA conference at ISE will satisfy the live education and connection we have all needed since the start of 2020. So many people have told me that ISE will be their first in-person broadcast for more than two years. Their excitement is palpable just like mine. I look forward to seeing you all in Barcelona.

Keynote Day One is from Refik Anadol: “Exploring Tomorrow’s Heritage” at 6:00 p.m. on May 10. Anadol is a world-renowned media artist and pioneer in data aesthetics and artificial intelligence.
