Integrated Systems Events has announced that its 2016 event at the RAI exhibition centre in Amsterdam has been extended from three days to four thanks to the show’s “rapid rise in size and prominence,” according to ISE managing director Mike Blackman.
“This move has largely been driven by the demands of our exhibitors and attendees,” Blackman says. “Quite simply, the extremely high attendance at the show, particularly on the first two days, saw increasing requests from exhibitors to have more time to spend with attendees.
“For attendees, we need to ensure that the show remains comfortable to attend. This announcement allows us to meet both objectives. The extra day will allow ISE to become an even more rewarding experience for everyone at the show.”
ISE is widely recognised as the world’s most popular event for professional AV and electronic systems integration. With more than 950 exhibitors already booked into ISE 2015 in February, attendance is expected to rise above the 51,000 people that came to the 2014 edition.
