It was announced this week that Keith Watson has joined the Integrated Systems Events Board of Directors. Keith is Marketing Director – Mixing for Harman’s mixer business and this appointment is a clear demonstration of the growing importance of pro-audio to Integrated Systems Events itself.
Mike Blackman, Managing Director, Integrated Systems Events, told us “When ISE first started, professional audio played a relatively small role not just in our events but in the AV industry generally. Since then we have seen audio start to assume much more significance in the planning and implementation of AV projects across all sectors, and the number of pro-audio exhibitors at ISE has increased substantially year on year”.
He continued “We felt it was important to reflect this trend by appointing someone with a strong pro-audio background to our Board when Tim’s three-year term came to an end, and Keith’s position and experience made him the perfect candidate.”
The (ISE) Board maintains three positions for representatives of ISE’s exhibitors, each of whom serves a three-year period of office. Watson replaces Tim Penn of AMX, whose three-year term expired last month.
Integrated Systems Europe 2011 will take place at the Amsterdam RAI, Netherlands, from 1–3 February 2011.
