Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) is an annual event that combines leading technology, professional development and networking opportunities for over 80,000 visitors. The 2020 edition takes place at the RAI Convention Centre in Amsterdam from 11–14 February 2020. Welcoming over 1,300 exhibitors across 15 halls, the show is the largest audiovisual and systems integration event in the world.
By attending ISE 2020, visitors can gain a competitive advantage by learning the benefits of new technologies and how these solutions can work together to create a leading technology-focused system within an educational facility.
Leading manufacturers of hardware and software products use ISE as a launchpad for the newest, smartest technology. Attendees can therefore expect to find product launches and updates on innovations that can directly impact the education market, with inspiration to be taken from corporate-focused solutions also.
Why should independent school representatives attend the show?
Increasingly, schools and universities are embracing the products and technologies widely implemented across a broad range of industries beyond education – which means that taking a broader view of advances in audiovisual solutions has become essential.
Education-focused exhibitions such as BETT, FETC and Learning Technologies unquestionably have a valuable place, but ISE offers something more; the opportunity to see, touch and discuss the latest developments not only specifically around teaching and learning, but serving educational facilities more widely.
Recognising the importance of the education market to audiovisual suppliers, it includes an Education Technology Zone (located in hall 13) specifically for those responsible for specifying, implementing – and even using – school and university technology.
Located in the hall, visitors can expect to find the latest screens, projectors and interactive whiteboards exhibited, alongside sophisticated collaborative learning solutions, VR/AR gamification and cybersecurity updates.
The advantages of attending ISE extend beyond products however, with the show providing leading professional development opportunities for attendees from the education sector.
Organised by the show’s co-owner AVIXA, the Higher Education AV Conference will take place on 11 February from 13.00 at the RAI. Supported by the European University Information Systems and SCHOMS, a leading UK and Ireland community of professionals working in higher education, the conference will highlight a range of perspectives on how to best enhance learning and teaching experience through the effective use of AV technologies.
ISE promises innovative new solutions for education and learning, exciting show features, enriching learning opportunities and unbeatable networking prospects.
ISE is all about making deeper connections – with people, with technologies and with the industry as a whole.
Today, young people are encouraged to work together and to arrive at solutions for themselves, with the teacher or lecturer no longer confined to the front of the room
How important is AV and systems integration in the current educational landscape?
We’re now in an era of student-centric learning. Today, young people are encouraged to work together and to arrive at solutions for themselves, with the teacher or lecturer no longer confined to the front of the room. This transformation has been made possible, in large part, thanks to educational technology – in schools and education facilities of all sizes. Screens, projectors and interactive whiteboards are no longer luxuries, but essentials – essentials that reflect the world in which students and pupils live.
Appropriate AV systems increase the opportunities for interactive learning, which is something students are coming to expect from their learning environment.
Many pupils have access to connected devices and expect a similar level of sophistication when they enter the classroom.
The inclusion of this technology sets educational establishments apart from competition and future-proofs the classroom to ensure it’s the best environment for students.
Technology and connected systems also enable teachers to deliver crucial information to students in new and engaging ways.
ISE takes place from 11–14 February 2020 at the RAI Convention Centre in Amsterdam.
