ISE Attendance Tops 65,600; 2017 Space Almost Gone Already


Last week’s Integrated Systems Europe exhibition in Amsterdam attracted 65,686 registered attendees, making it the world’s largest AV and systems integration tradeshow.

The show had 1,103 vendors and attracted press from 40 countries, including at least one Canadian.

It was the 1st time the show has been extended to four days. “The volume of attendee traffic and its spread over the four days confirms our belief that the extra day was necessary and that it adds value for visitors and exhibitors,” says Integrated Systems Events Managing Director Mike Blackman. “I’m delighted to say that the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive and I would like to thank everyone who attended and contributed.”

The exhibitor and stand re-bookings for next year’s show are already at 47,131 square metres of sold space, which represents 102% of the total space sold for the 2016 edition and 95% of the total space available for 2017. The addition of a new hall in 2017 will coincide with a new hall numbering system, which will be introduced into the RAI.

The next ISE  is Feb. 7-10 in Amsterdam.
