Network, discover, learn and do business; ISE 2007 prepares to welcome worldwide visitors

With just a few days to go until the 4th edition of Integrated Systems Europe opens in Amsterdam, the show organisers have announced that visitors to ISE 2007 will see a show that is bigger in size and has twice the number of special features.

Halls 1 - 4 at the state of the art Amsterdam RAI exhibition centre are about to open to welcome the first of over 350 leading exhibitors who are on their way to prepare for what is now officially the biggest event yet staged by ISE. As Mike Blackman, Show Director confirms, 'This is a true testament to not only the AV industry, but also the Exhibition medium, that many exhibitors are using ISE 2007 to show and introduce (new) products to the industry. We have invested heavily on attracting serious buyers and key decision makers to the show and this is reflected by the fact that we have a record number of exhibitors at the show.'


Some of the key highlights at ISE 2007 are:
