ISE 2020 – which will be the final edition held in Amsterdam – is confidently expected to be the biggest in the show’s history with more attendees and exhibitors than ever before. One of the factors enabling this will be the construction of a permanent extension to Hall 5.
ISE is now recognised as the largest AV and systems integration show in the world. It is the European destination for an industry that is truly global. If you have business to do in any of the many market segments that make up this dynamic industry, you’ll be part of ISE – either as an exhibitor or an attendee.
As the show has grown, it has naturally changed and evolved. What started out as a temporary shop window for 120 companies is now a multi-faceted, four-day event that features a huge show floor, comprehensive education and professional development programmes, conferences, world class speakers and a multitude of affiliated and partner events.
ISE has helped formulate the systems integration industry and increased collaborative approaches across a wide range of complementary technologies.
The show’s growth has been steady and sustainable. Five years after launching, ISE 2009 welcomed over 560 exhibitors and almost 25,000 visitors. By 2012, the number of exhibitors broke 800 and more than 40,000 people attended the show. ISE 2016 hosted over 1,100 exhibitors and more than 65,000 visitors. The growth continued in subsequent years, when yet more records were broken.
