Europe, Middle East and Africa
2016 is off to a flying start — we cannot believe it is April already, with record-breaking ISE and InfoComm China shows already under belts. It has certainly been a packed start to the calendar, whether we have been running official InfoComm events, or supporting other organisations' activities with InfoComm education and outreach programmes. ISE yet again proved itself to be an essential destination for the AV, IT and smart buildings markets and we take a look back at its success below.
Of course we are now less than two months away from our June event as InfoComm returns to Las Vegas this year. We are expecting a large international contingent of visitors — many from the EMEA region. We are looking forward to a spectacular week in Vegas. Find us in the Grand Lobby and take advantage of the extensive education programme throughout 4-10 June. We will see you there.
ISE Goes From Strength to Strength
A record-breaking Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) 2016, 9-12 Feb. at the Amsterdam RAI saw a 10.7-percent increase in attendees, with a final count of 65,686 registrants from across the globe. We're delighted to confirm that the much-talked-about fourth day, which was added to the show for the first time this year, proved to be a hit with visitors and exhibitors alike.
At ISE, InfoComm added professional development consulting to its comprehensive education programme. The one-on-one consultations were conducted by InfoComm's Europe-based and other international staff, helping individuals and companies to identify courses of study for advancing their careers and businesses. David Labuskes, CTS®, RCDD, Executive Director and CEO, InfoComm International, said: "Yet again I can say how proud we are to be associated with ISE and the unique position it holds today." He continued: "Our InfoComm Conferences, MasterClasses and FlashTrack education sessions drew excellent delegate numbers and offered ISE attendees an opportunity to experience a little of what InfoComm International can offer."
