ISE 2023 has been declared a roaring success by organisers, who have reported that this year’s show concluded with 58,107 attendees from 155 countries.

Notable for the largest ever ISE show floor, 56,870sqm across six halls, exhibitors reported ‘unparalleled footfall’ on booths.

On the first day, King Felipe VI of Spain took a tour of the show floor stopping by a few booths to take in a small sample of the technology on display.

New this year was the Content Production and Distribution zone, in Hall 6.

The opening day keynote by BK Johannessen of Epic Games highlighted how technology trends in the gaming industry is driving audiovisual innovation to new heights of creativity. He drew on experience of cutting-edge projects in gaming, film and broadcast to engage and entertain.

French electronic music pioneer Jean-Michel Jarre even unveiled his latest album on the first day of the show, using the Audio Demo Rooms.

Mike Blackman, Managing Director of Integrated Systems Events, asid: “It’s been an extraordinary week and it’s hugely gratifying for us to look back and realise we’ve delivered an exceptional show for our industry and the wonderful city of Barcelona. We’ve had unprecedented visitor levels to the show, so much inspiring content and features on display, and ground-breaking visits from the King of Spain on Tuesday and the President of Catalonia on Thursday to add both a royal and a political seal of approval to the show. This week at ISE 2023 confirms that we can safely say the global AV and systems integration industry is back with an impressive bang!”

ISE returns to Barcelona on January 30 – February 2 2024.
