In our series of #RoadtoISE blogs, we’re talking with exhibitors about the hottest technologies and trends they’re looking to see at ISE 2019.
Q&A with Rob Meiner, Kiosk Business Unit Manager, Peerless-AV.
Q: Why ISE?
ROB MEINER: ISE is the world’s largest exhibition for AV and systems integration professionals. What’s great about ISE is that it’s a joint venture between AVIXA and CEDIA. It is in a prime location within Europe allowing people from numerous markets to come together to collaborate and learn from each other, expand their network, and see firsthand what manufacturers are introducing as new products for 2019. In 2018, there were over 1,200 exhibitors and over 80,000 audiovisual professionals who visited the show. Twenty-five percent of attendees are either a systems integrators or installers and another 25 percent is a dealer or distributor of AV products. The timing of the show is a great opportunity for Peerless-AV to start the year on the right foot and begin talking about residential opportunities with integrators and how our products can make installations both easier and more successful.
Q: What is the most exciting trend you expect to see at the show?
RM: I am excited to see the trends in home automation and smart home technology.
