ISE 2009 is 90% sold

AUTHOR: Inavate

Organisers of Europe’s largest systems integration tradeshow say that with three months remaining before the event is due to take place, around 90% of the available exhibition space is gone.

“The continued growth of ISE is a tribute to the robustness of the professional AV and electronic systems industry in Europe,” comments Mike Blackman, managing director, Integrated Systems Events.

Blackman also believes that the growth can also be attributed to interest from a range of industry sectors, rather than one particular market. “We have had another big rise in the number of pro-audio companies exhibiting, which reflects the increasing importance of corporate AV and the rental and staging market to that sector. Similarly, we have had to add a further Residential Solutions area to Hall 9, as a result of the continued appeal of home theatre and automation technologies. And, of course, digital signage has been a huge growth sector this year – a trend we have responded to with our new Digital Signage Zone in Hall 12, along with the DOOH Business Conference which begins the day before the show.”
