ISE 2006 - now also providing the gateway for US businesses to access the pan European market

Integrated Systems Europe, the leading European Conference and Exhibition showcase for AV Systems Integrators, offers endless opportunities for European companies to create new business and rewarding partnerships. For example In the UK, financial support is available to eligible companies through the Tradefair group, which facilitates the negotiations on behalf of prospective exhibitors and UK Trade and Investment body.

To also demonstrate it's commitment for US companies, the organisers of Integrated Systems Europe 2006 have announced that the show has been granted Trade Fair Certification from the U.S. Department of Commerce (UDC). Certification means that ISE can now offer a level of assurance to its US exhibitors for full endorsement of their products and solutions at the show which will help facilitate export sales and leverage new business opportunities.

The UDC's Belgium headquarters, believes that with the 2006 show being held in Brussels - the recognised commercial centre of Europe - this event will offer US companies many excellent opportunities. "The support that comes with US DOC certification allows buyers and sellers from the US to focus on closing deals and form new relationships with buyers and suppliers," said Ira Bel, Senior Commercial Specialist from the US Department of Commerce in Brussels

Demand for exhibition space exceeds all expectations
ISE 2006 has nearly doubled in size from the previous show with still over 4 months to go until the event itself in February 2006. At the Brussels Expo, more than 2000 m2 extra space has been allocated to meet the increasing demand from new and existing companies, keen to participate in this increasingly high profile show. Key exhibitors who signed up over the summer were Eiki and Dataton. These were astonishing figures for Mike Blackman, ISE 2006 Managing Director:
"We are delighted to see that the level of new business continues to grow each month. Even over the traditionally quiet summer months, we managed to sell over 200m2 of exhibition space. The interest levels and awareness of ISE 2006 is increasing all the time and, now that the website has gone live, we will be channeling our energies towards the Visitor and Press with a series of exciting roadshows, editorial and advertising campaigns."
