Integrated Systems Events are in serious danger of losing all credibility in the AV industry with the latest news that two of their four planned events set to (sort-of) replace the already cancelled #ISE2021 proper), namely ISE Digital in both Munich and Amsterdam have now also been cancelled.
In a statement today, Mike Blackman, Managing Director Integrated Systems Events said “We have today made the decision to cancel the ISE events planned for Munich and Amsterdam. Whilst we have had good support from both exhibitors and visitors who wanted to get together at a local event, new government regulations regarding COVID-19 in both Germany and the Netherlands have meant that we are unable to guarantee being able to proceed with these two events.
Mike also said “Preparations for Barcelona and London are well underway as the governments ease restrictions in both Spain and the UK and remain on target for the successful return of events. We are looking forward to bringing the industry together and delivering a platform for those who wish to be there and that will be supported by key exhibiting partners, a programme of content and networking. These events will be supported by our online platform ISE Digital, providing our global audience with the opportunity to join us online.”
- June 1-2, 2021 Barcelona
- June 8-9, 2021 Munich
- June 15-16, 2021 Amsterdam
- June 23-24, 2021 London
I suspect that exhibitor take up was also a contributor. This just leaves ISE Digital events for Barcelona and London (as listed above) but the question on everyone’s lips will be how long are they for this world? Barcelona because, well it is Barcelona and London because we hear that the event, seriously overpriced for vendors to exhibit seems to have little industry interest so far.
