ISE 2013 Attendance
ISE 2013 in Amsterdam drew 44,161 attendees, setting the all-time record professional A/V and electronic systems industry trade shows.
February 05, 2013 By D. Craig MacCormack

The 2013 edition of Integrated Systems Europe ended less than a week ago, and already there’s a buzz about next year’s event setting another attendance record.

More than 500 companies of the almost 900 who exhibited at ISE 2013 have reserved space for ISE 2014, meaning more than three-quarters of the expanded area the show will encompass next February is already booked. Many of the companies to reserve their space for the 2014 show are small- and medium-sized exhibitors that are among the event’s newcomers.

Much of the credit for the early reservations may go to the on-site rebooking process that was unveiled at the show this year, when 44,161 people attended, setting the all-time record for professional A/V and electronic systems industry trade shows and reflecting an 8 percent increase from 2012.

“What we clearly see emerging now at ISE is a fresh wave of exhibitors that are building their businesses on the back of their ability to inspire new connections, greater collaboration and, perhaps above all, wonderful content,” says Mike Blackman, managing director of Integrated Systems Events.

“All the signs point to a wonderful show in 2014, and a rosy future for an industry that continues to grow into business sectors that would have seemed out-of-bounds to us only a few short years ago,” he said.

ISE recently extended its deal with the Amsterdam RAI through 2019.
