iotswc joins forces
IOT Solutions World Congress (IOTSWC), the largest international event devoted to industry transformation through disruptive technologies, and Integrated Systems Europe (ISE), the world’s leading professional audiovisual (AV) and systems integration show, have agreed to join forces this year and provide an unparalleled ecosystem for digital transformation to professionals from many industries.
IOTSWC and ISE will be held at Fira de Barcelona’s Gran Via venue on May 10-12 and 10-13 2022, respectively.
The joint celebration of the two events will provide a unique opportunity to explore the crossroads between two different sets of disruptive technologies. IOTSWC will bring to the table top experts and companies working on Artificial Intelligence, Digital Twins, Internet of Things and Quantum Computing and ISE will deliver leading companies from the professional AV industry as well as international experts in the field of systems integration in numerous industries. The goal of this co-operation is to highlight the two events’ common ground that offers new ideas and means of collaboration for attendees and exhibitors.
The agreement will allow visitors of the events to access both exhibition areas at no extra cost, whilst delegates registered to the IOTSWC congress program will benefit from a 50% discount if they wish to register for any ISE conferences – and vice versa
ABOUT INTEGRATED SYSTEMS EUROPE
Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) is a joint venture between AVIXA and CEDIA, the two leading industry associations for the global audiovisual industry. The show is recognised as the largest audiovisual and systems integration event in the world. It has helped to formulate the systems integration industry and has increased collaborative approaches across a wide range of complementary technologies.
ISE classifies its visitors into two broad groups:
- The AV channel: people involved in the buying and selling of AV products
- End-users: people who work in vertical sectors – the most significant ones include enterprise, education, live events, hospitality and retail – who work with and/or purchase integrated AV solutions
The show floor is divided into six Technology Zones: Audio, Digital Signage & DooH (Digital out of Home); Lighting & Staging; Residential & Smart Building; Unified Communications & Education Technology; and Multi-Technology.
The conference programme serves key vertical markets: smart building, digital signage, smart workplaces, education, control rooms, superyachts, and live events. There is also a professional development programme produced by AVIXA and CEDIA
Mike Blackman, Managing Director of Integrated Systems Events, says:
“AV and IT convergence has been the single most important industry trend at ISE over the past decade and the inspiring innovations happening in IoT take this to another level. With our two events now happening at the same time and place this May, it is very exciting to be able to work together and explore even more areas of collaboration. The exciting world of pro AV and the inspiring innovations in IoT make all sorts of possibilities a reality.”
The Director of IOTSWC, Roger Bou, adds:
“We are very excited about this agreement. At IOTSWC we believe that some of the key technologies we have been showcasing such as Artificial Intelligence and the Internet of Things have an incredible transformational potential for the professional AV industry and likewise the AV and systems integration industry can help to develop disruptive new solutions for the digital transformation ecosystem.”
.Program director VIEWPOINT
Conference director, Industry IOT Consortium and Digital Twin Consortium, says:
“Both IOTSWC and ISE are working together to offer our delegates the best content onsite from 10-12 May, in Barcelona. For the AV industry, technologies like Internet of Things, Digital Twins, and Artificial Intelligence are at the forefront of their digital innovation initiatives and strategies. And at IOTSWC, our sessions are led by many of the game-changing business and technology executives who are disrupting and transforming industry and creating a powerful competitive advantage. Attendees will be able to see real-world implementations of these emerging technologies.
From the IOTSWC delegate point of view, ISE has a great offer on the Smart Building Conference, Smart Cities, and Smart Workplaces. We are sure that both visitors will find an amazing learning opportunity on our show floor and in congress sessions”.
