The countdown is on for ISE 2022. The audio visual and systems integration exhibition arrives in Barcelona on May 10-13, with an opening day keynote from Refik Anadol, a media artist and pioneer in the aesthetics of data and machine intelligence. The day two keynote is Alan Greenberg, a specialist in cinematic immersion, interactive content, and theatrical design.

“So many people have told me that ISE will be their first in-person show in more than two years,” said Daryl Friedman, Global President and CEO of CEDIA. “In-person trade shows are truly a cornerstone of our industry and have been sorely missed these past two years. Yet at the same time, people around the world have discovered that their homes, through beautifully integrated technology, can be a central hub for every aspect of their lives, so the timing of ISE’s return couldn’t be better. What we’ve prepared for the CEDIA conference at ISE will satisfy the live education and connection we’ve all been craving since early 2020.”

Speaking at a press briefing yesterday, ISE MD, Mike Blackman, said: “After 16 years in Amsterdam, it was time for us to find a new home for our show, and in just two weeks’ time, ISE 2022 will open its doors at the Gran Vía, Fira de Barcelona.”

Visitors will be able to view the latest display technology, in-ceiling speakers, projectors, projection screens, cinema rooms, lighting, and security systems. There will also be a five-day conference programme covering topics that range from retail technology, to live events, education, and superyachts.

Professional development opportunities are provided through certification and learning programmes, curated by AVIXA and CEDIA, both on site and in the city.

Novel attractions lined up include the ISE Immersive Art Experience. Working with award-winning company Exhibition Hub, ISE has curated a unique 650sqm virtual reality experience art installation at the Fira Gran Via which combines several of its award-winning immersive art experiences.

I RISE at the Plaça d’Espanya is also putting on a spectacular projection mapping show. This is being created and produced by Barcelona-based Flaix Studio and will run May 9-11.

Over 800 exhibitors, set over six Technology Zones across five halls of the Gran Vía, will showcase AV products and solutions for the commercial and residential market sectors.

Brands exhibiting at ISE 2022 include Artcoustic, Alfalite, Barco, Christie, Crestron, Google, KNX, LANG, Microsoft, Panasonic, Samsung, Shure, Sony, L-Acoustics, KNX, and Rako Controls.

Organisers expect exhibitors to grow to 1,775 by 2026. The AV industry is predicted to grow to $329bn by 2026, with average growth rates of 7.2 per cent CAGR.
