Integrated Systems Europe 2020’s professional development program will feature over 200 leading experts from a wide variety of disciplines and subject areas across five days of keynotes, conferences, masterclasses, workshops, and presentations.
Presented under the umbrella title “Learn. Discover. Be Inspired,” the program has been produced by Integrated Systems Events working in close co-operation with AV industry bodies – in particular, its co-owning associations AVIXA and CEDIA – media partners, and other independent organizations.
The program includes an Opening Address plus 13 conferences across five days in the Hotel Okura and RAI Amsterdam, organized by ISE, AVIXA, CEDIA, and media partners – a record number for ISE; a four-day training program from CEDIA; AVIXA FlashTracks (on Stand 13-N110) and CEDIA Talks (on Stand 1-E20); and a full program of free thought leadership sessions on the Main Stage in Hall 14 (sponsored by Shure).
The Opening Address on Monday, February 10 will be given by Duncan Wardle, a consultant to Disney who was previously head of Innovation and Creativity at the entertainment giant. His presentation, “Think Different,” will look at how companies can re-awaken traits in their employees such as imagination, intuition and curiosity to create an environment that fosters creativity and innovation.
Also on Monday, CEDIA’s Cybersecurity Workshop will be led by Jeff Sonnleitner, a professional network and security instructor with over 35 years’ experience. He is a Network Specialist and Information Security Instructor at Moraine Park Technical College, Wisconsin. The workshop will cover all aspects of network security and privacy for professionals working in either the residential or the commercial space.
Business advisor, president of North of 10 Advisors, and chairman of the AVIXA Board of Directors, Jeff Day will be speaking on Tuesday, February 11 at an AVIXA FlashTrack session (on Stand 13-N110) entitled “AV Wellness Trends – Must Know Applications and their Impacts Create Real-World Opportunity for Integrators and End Users.” The next day he will chair an AVIXA panel discussion, “The Experience Revolution – How Content and Experience Change Everything in a Brand Activated World!,” on the Main Stage.
Two more show features have recently been added to the ISE 2020 content program. In Hall 14, the VR at ISE feature will contain two very different interactive virtual reality exhibits. Two Digital Projection Multiview VR systems will be demonstrated, each of which allows up to three people to view and interact with a stereoscopic 3D virtual model. Each person sees the object from their own viewpoint.
The other part of the VR at ISE feature will be an immersive VR theme park ride. Designed and run by Lightspeed Design, this DepthQ VR attraction will take attendees on an interactive fantasy ride through aquatic environments.
“With the technology market continually evolving, it’s important for professional development to reflect this and stay ahead of change,” says Tabatha O’Connor, CEDIA global president and CEO. “We’re thrilled to be able to contribute to ISE’s comprehensive professional development program at ISE 2020, which provides attendees with full, varied and high-quality training across a range of industry topics taught by experts. Whatever the level or role of attendees within the industry, there’s something for everyone at ISE.”
