My Top 5 for ISE 2022

ISE is finally happening in Barcelona. As someone born and raised in the city I want to share my top 5 picks for the show this year.
My Top 5 for ISE 2022

I am Christian Orcin, born and raised in Barcelona and AV professional for more than 20 years. Based on these facts you can guess how excited I am to welcome ISE and the AV industry to my "home". 

As a local I have selected my personal Top 5 events/activities happening around the show and that I think are specially worthy to attend. Let's go!

1) Living Architecture at Casa Batlló

Casa Batlló is probably the most beautiful building in the city and the maximum expression of modernist art. The façade of Gaudi's master piece will be the canvas were Rafik Anadol will project his latest creation. A video mapping show to enjoy the only (first) NFT digital artwork to be auctioned at Christie's will be projected on May the 7th.

2) I RISE Projection Mapping at Plaza España.

I Rise is the projection mapping officially opening ISE. It will happen at Plaza España, a very beautiful part of the city, vertex of the main exhibition area built in 1929 for the second Universal Expo in Barcelona. ISE in collaboration with Flaix Studio have prepared this show on the evening of May the 9th to welcome all visitors to the greatest AV show in the greatest city ;)

3) d&b audiotechnik demo room. 

There is no immersive experience without immersive sound. d&b audiotechnik as one of the leaders in the pro-audio industry has prepared a very special demo journey for ISE. In order to secure a proper environment and to enhance the visitor experience we have decided to locate this demo at the Auditori Cornellà. (Free shuttle available). There you will find the latest innovations in Soundscape and the new XSL Series.

4) Women in Live Music Panel.

ISE has always been a catalyst for many AV industry initiatives in all fronts. This year one of the most interesting panels comes from Women in Live Music that has organized a panel to discuss the presence (absence) of women in the Sales and R&D environment. WILM CEO's Malle Kaas will moderate the panel at the Live Events Arena at 16:00 on Tuesday 10 May.

5) IOT Solutions World Congress

Integrated Systems Europe again under the role of industry catalyst creating synergies with other industries has teamed up with IOT Solutions World Congress (IOTSWC), the largest international event devoted to industry transformation through disruptive technologies. The two events are joining forces in May to present an unparalleled ecosystem for digital transformation to professionals from many industries.

With Integrated Systems Europe, Mobile World Congress and IOT Solutions World Congress, Barcelona becomes a reference on high level and high tech events. We should be proud and honored of hosting you all.

For all visitors coming to Barcelona I wish you a very nice journey! For the ones will not be able to join this year I hope to see you in 2023!

And as if I wasn't sad enough to be missing ISE this year ;)

Jokes aside, thanks for putting together and sharing this list. It's going to be an amazing week and I'm looking forward to seeing all the posts and pics so I can well and truly embrace my FOMO!

I'll be in San Jose for SID's DisplayWeek (our first time in person since May 2019) so I will sharing some posts of my own.

See you at Infocomm in Vegas!
