ISCEx boosts visitors in 2018, reveals 2019 dates
The Institute of Sound and Communications Engineers is celebrating the completion of a successful UK event, revealing increased attendance at its annual exhibition and seminar day.

ISCEx, a one-day event open to members and non-members, was held at Coombe Abbey Hotel and Country Park the day after the Institute’s general meeting and evening networking event.

The ISCEx 2018 seminar programme was kicked off by Dr Chris Cocking, senior lecturer at the School of Health Sciences, University of Brighton. Dr Cocking delivered the Hopkins-Baldwin Lecture with a presentation titled ‘Busting the Myths of Mass Evacuation’. He outlined his extensive research into crowd behaviour during emergencies and the implications for crowd safety management during mass evacuations.

Hanieh Motamedian, business development manager for Sound Directions and Sam Wise, design director at Venue Strategies followed with the Warren-Barnett Memorial Lecture, discussing the benefits of sound masking in the corporate workplace and the positive effects on patient recovery in healthcare environments and the effects of sound on the human brain.

Matthew Archer, technical product specialist at Audio-Technica, presented the third seminar of the day, titled ‘Don’t drop the Ball’, highlighting some of the steps involved in using large numbers of wireless microphones in high-profile, large capacity and live global sports broadcasts.

Neil Voce, head of business development at ASL, said: “I’ve attended most of the ISCEx events to date, it always provides an opportunity to think about something you might not otherwise have considered in your working life every day, its good to hear things from others’ perspectives and the ISCEx seminar programme provides that.”

Ros Wigmore, event organiser for ISCE, said: “With thirty-five exhibitors at ISCEx this year, again we saw an increased number of visitors attending as a consequence.

“ISCEx is a very personal event and lends itself to creating a very intimate and informal environment for business conversations and networking to take place. Feedback has been positive and we’re already confirmed the dates for ISCEx 2019, which will take place on 5-6th March 2019,” she added.
