The Origins Of Integrated Systems Europe



For nearly twenty years, ISE has served as the largest AV systems integration show in the world. In the course of its run, it has succeeded in uniting leading technology and solutions providers from all over the globe. ISE’s humble beginnings emerged in the year 2004 when the company first came to fruition. The first edition of the ISE show had been held in Geneva, Switzerland, where it hosted a total of over 120 exhibitors and with 3,500 attendees. This first showing of ISE laid the foundation for many consecutive years of unprecedented growth for the annual show. Last year, ISE 2019 welcomed more than 1,300 exhibitors and over 81,000 visitors to the RAI Amsterdam.

ISE 2020 will have more attendees and exhibitors than ever before, and it will be the final edition to be held in Amsterdam. It is expected to be the largest show in ISE history, which is no surprise given that ISE has achieved universal recognition as the largest AV and systems integration show in the world. It is the European destination for an industry that is truly global. Anyone with a business in any of the many market segments that make up this dynamic industry will surely want to be part of ISE – either as an exhibitor or an attendee.



The ISE 2020 will be a four-day event, which has taken place at the RAI Amsterdam every February. It is organized and run by Integrated Systems Events, which is a joint venture between AVIXA and CEDIA – the two leading industry associations for the global audiovisual industry. ISE also hosts numerous pre-show and at-show conferences, as well as equally showcasing keynote speeches, arranging off-site tech tours, and facilitating numerous networking opportunities.
