This conference covers a wide range of industry trends like wellness, hospitality, and assisted living, as well as hot topics like gaming, AI, and slow technology. Designed for delegates to choose sessions throughout the week, attendees can book sessions ‘a la carte’ or purchase a CEDIA Pass which provides access to the entire programme.

The conference will challenge integrators to creatively incorporate tomorrow’s needs into today’s businesses to achieve sustainable profits. Technical sessions feature a four-part deep dive into designing, implementing, and managing bass in private entertainment spaces, as well as a half-day RP22 Audio and Room Design Recommended Practice Workshop focusing on objective levels of performance that will define the immersive experience.

Co-produced by invidis and Integrated Systems Events, Digital Signage Summit ISE begins on the morning of Wednesday 1 February in CC5.1. Exploring the theme of the Power of Pixels, this always insightful C-Level conference will feature digital signage experts, thought leaders and leading technology and service suppliers as they take a deep dive into hot topics such as the role of digital signage in omnichannel retail, green signage and what’s next for the sector. 

Control Rooms Summit

Also taking place on the morning of 1 February, Control Rooms Summit, sponsored by Guntermann and Drunck in CC5.3, will delve into the huge topic of data. Case studies and presentations from expert speakers from across the academia, supplier and user communities will focus on how to make optimum use of growing data streams in order to make critical decisions in a timely manner.

Attendees of both the Control Rooms Summit and the Digital Signage Summit can also enjoy a combined networking lunch after sessions have finished.

Education Technology Summit

The afternoon of 1 February sees the Education Technology Summit take place in room CC5.3. This year’s theme is ‘Connected, Compassionate and Creative: Edtech for a Changing World’. The summit will encourage attendees to look both forward and inward, bringing state-of-the-art technologies and reflective discussions on the relationship between humans and digital technology.

One highlight is set to be Jo-An Kamp from Fontys University, who will deliver a keynote presentation provoking the audience to think about the assumptions and influences that feed into the design of the digital tools we use for learning and the uses we make of data to personalise experiences. These insights will give attendees an exploration of what the metaverse might mean for learning.

Sustainability, mental health and wellbeing, the need for compassionate pedagogy and more will also be up for discussion.

Another new summit for 2023 is the Content Production & Distribution Summit taking place on Tuesday 31 January in CC5.3. Content production and distribution technologies are growing in relevance for the professional AV market with end-users and vendors increasingly seeking to create and disseminate high-quality video content for commercial and informational use. This summit will explore the strategies and technologies behind the creation, management and distribution of video content and explain how the power of a story can be unleashed to the world through the use of easy to access technology.

The summit will be chaired by Ciarán Doran, a consultant and senior executive with extensive experience of the worlds of broadcast, content production and AV technology.

Tech Talks

Aside from the main conference programme, a new series of Tech Talks, curated and produced by AVIXA, will also run throughout all four days of the shows in room CC4.1. These free-to-attend sessions are designed to give visitors the opportunity to learn about technology innovations and business developments, with both English and Spanish language sessions on offer. 

Tech Talks will be given by experts on the cutting edge, bringing new ideas, sharing best-practice case studies and offering a glimpse of the state of the art at ISE 2023.

English-language sessions will cover topics including the Metaverse and how companies are factoring it into their business strategies; using video games to treat and rehabilitate patients; and the latest in innovative physical presence displays and immersive experiences. A series of sessions will also dissect the challenges arising from the ever-changing business climate – sharing solutions that look at new revenue streams from how companies can manage, service and commercialise their connected devices to how AV is changing to meet the IT needs of today and support the needs of digitally transformed enterprises into the future.
