InfoComm and ISE celebrate growth

AUTHOR: Inavate

InfoComm International has claimed it attracted 32,002 attendees to the 2010 InfoComm show held last week in Las Vegas, USA.

The show, June 9 to 11, boasted 925 exhibitors which booked more than 140,000 square feet of exhibition and special events space.

Randal Lemke, executive director and CEO of InfoComm International, described the educational programme, which attracted 6,587 registrations, as “robust”. Furthermore, 116 candidates took the Certified Technology Specialist (CTS) exam at a local testing centre.

Integrated Systems Europe also announced that it will add an extra hall to accommodate its own expansion. Mike Blackman, managing director of Integrated Systems Events, said the 2011 show would take over Hall 9 of the Amsterdam RAI.

“Four months after ISE 2010 closed its doors, we continue to be approached by exhibitors who would like to take larger stands than they had this year,” continued Blackman. “Some of these requests were impossible for us to accommodate within our existing floorplan and this, combined with continuing high levels of bookings from new exhibitors, has prompted us to open up Hall 9 for ISE 2011.”
