IOT Solutions World Congress and ISE Team up to Reimagine Cross-Industry Digital Transformation

Fira Barcelona

IOT Solutions World Congress (IOTSWC), the largest international event devoted to industry
transformation through disruptive technologies, and Integrated Systems Europe (ISE), the world’s
leading professional audiovisual (AV) and systems integration show, have agreed to join forces this
year and provide an unparalleled ecosystem for digital transformation to professionals from many
industries. IOTSWC and ISE will be held at Fira de Barcelona’s Gran Via venue on May 10-12 and 10-
13 2022, respectively.

The joint celebration of the two events will provide a unique opportunity to explore the crossroads between
two different sets of disruptive technologies. IOTSWC will bring to the table top experts and companies
working on Artificial Intelligence, Digital Twins, Internet of Things and Quantum Computing and ISE will
deliver leading companies from the professional AV industry as well as international experts in the field of
systems integration in numerous industries. The goal of this co-operation is to highlight the two events’
common ground that offers new ideas and means of collaboration for attendees and exhibitors.
The agreement will allow visitors of the events to access both exhibition areas at no extra cost, whilst
delegates registered to the IOTSWC congress program will benefit from a 50% discount if they wish to
register for any ISE conferences – and vice versa.

The director of IOTSWC, Roger Bou, says: “We are very excited about this agreement. At IOTSWC we
believe that some of the key technologies we have been showcasing such as Artificial Intelligence, and the
Internet of Things have an incredible transformational potential for the professional AV industry and likewise
the AV and systems integration industry can help to develop disruptive new solutions for the digital
transformation ecosystem.”

In addition, the director of Integrated Systems Events, Mike Blackman, says that “AV and IT convergence
has been the single most important industry trend at ISE over the past decade and the inspiring innovations
happening in IOT take this to another level. With our two events now happening at the same time and place
this May, it is very exciting to be able to work together and explore even more areas of collaboration. The
exciting world of pro AV and the inspiring innovations in IOT make all sorts of possibilities a reality.”

The meeting point for the AV industry
ISE is a joint venture between AVIXA® and CEDIA™ – the two leading industry associations for the global
audiovisual industry. This year, ISE returns in May 2022 with a vibrant and inspiring edition, a redesigned
show floor and new demonstration areas guaranteed to enable exhibitors to ‘Rise Up. Reimagine. Ignite the
Future’. With over 700 exhibitors, including innovators such as Barco, Crestron, KNX, Kramer, LG,
Panasonic, Samsung, and Sony to name just a few – the show floor has been redesigned and will also
feature a brand-new Discovery Zone, highlighting 40 new companies exhibiting for the first time.

Taking advantage of the large, modern Gran Via venue, ISE will premiere a new approach to the show floor
with six Technology Zones, set out over five halls, grouping together exhibitors in the major technology
areas, making it simpler for delegates to plan their visit and find and compare the wide variety of solutions
they need for their integration projects. The six zones are: Unified Comms & Education Technology,
Residential & Smart Building, Multi-Technology, Digital Signage & Digital Out-of-Home, Audio, and Lighting
& Staging.
