Event Summary:
Integrated Systems Europe (ISE), incorporating InfoComm Europe, serves the entire European region, including the United Kingdom, Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Africa. ISE is jointly sponsored by the two leading electronic systems industry associations: InfoComm International® and CEDIA®. The initial Integrated Systems Europe was launched in 2004 as leading AV industry vendors urged InfoComm International to develop a pan-European platform for them to meet and present their products to potential and existing customers. Over time both the exhibitor and the attendee numbers have continued to grow, with year upon year increases. Today ISE is the largest and most influential tradeshow in Europe for the AV Systems and Electronic Integration market. ISE 2012 broke all records. A total of 825 exhibitors occupied 11 halls of the Amsterdam RAI, with total registered attendance of 40,869. Both numbers are the highest ever achieved by ISE, with the exhibitor total representing a 15% jump on 2011, while the attendee increase was just over 17%. The show also broke new ground in other areas, with net floor space exceeding 30,000 square meters, and the number of people registering for ISE's conference, education and pre-show event program passing the 2,000 mark for the first time. ISE primarily attracts electronics and AV systems professionals from the commercial and residential markets including architects, builders, consultants, dealers, designers, distributors, engineers, installers, IT professionals, producers, rental & staging contractors, specifiers, systems integrators, technicians and value added resellers, as well as and qualified institutional buyers from corporate, government and educational markets.
