ISE 2016 - More than an exhibition

AV and IT: Two Worlds collide at ISE2016

Integrated Systems Europe (ISE), the largest AV trade show in Europe, will deliver an unprecedented experience for exhibitors and attendees in 2016 through a wide selection of events, conferences and innovative new features around the show. These are scheduled to take place before and during the exhibition that will take place from 9-12 February 2016 at the RAI, Amsterdam.

Taking place on 8 February is the Audio Forum conference. Visitors will have an opportunity to attend the pre-show event presented by one of ISE’s media partners Connessioni on the theme ‘Theories, Technologies, Legends and Myths about Audio’. Donato Masci, an acoustic designer and consultant from Studio Sound Service in Italy, will be one of the first to take the stage alongside qualified audio professionals offering seminars and panels at the full day event.

The Opening Panel Discussion and Opening Reception will take place on the evening of the 8 February at 6pm. It will provide the ideal opportunity for networking over food and drinks and a chance to look ahead to the upcoming show days.

The Sports Venue Integration Summit will be held on the morning of 11 February. Sports Video Group Europe, in conjunction with RH Consulting, will explore a day in the life of the contemporary connected stadium. Topics to be covered include new approaches to fan engagement, AV/IT integration, event preparation and temporary overlay.


A highlight the additional extra show day in 2016 will be the presentation of the Closing Keynote speaker Dr. Michio Kaku, one of the world’s leading business futurists and scientific figures. Dr Kaku’s presentation will take place at 9am, half an hour before the final day of the show opens on 12 February. Recognised as a leading figure in his field, Dr. Kaku will focus on future trends in technology and commerce.

An exciting first for ISE 2016 is the launch of the Drone Arena. Hosted by Stampede Global, the new area will welcome leading drone manufacturers, and will deliver a programme of education and practical demonstrations on a daily basis.

Another first will be the launch of the Dolby Atmos Immersive Theatre, a collaboration between Arcam; Dolby and Genelec. The theatre will demonstrate the breath-taking audio that can be delivered via the system for music; music videos and movies.


ISE 2016 will also see the addition of a fourth Show Floor Theatre. The Audio Solutions Theatre (sponsored by Tannoy), joins the already established Residential Solutions, (sponsored by KNX); Commercial Solutions, (sponsored by KNX) and Unified Communications (sponsored by Crestron) Theatres.

The four ISE Show Floor Theatres will provide a unique opportunity for attendees to hear industry experts, consultants and manufacturers present the latest in workflow solutions, case studies, technology innovation and business analysis in an innovative and intimate setting situated in the halls of the RAI.
