Rise Up. Reimagine. Ignite the Future of AV at ISE 2022.

ISE is the world’s largest AV and systems integration show, making deeper connections with the newest technologies, latest ideas – and the global AV industry.

In June 2021, ISE moved to the Fira de Barcelona. This modern, highly appointed venue provides ample space for the show floor to expand to meet exhibitor demand. But more than this, it gives us new opportunities to make ISE an even fuller, more engaging experience.

Always owned by not-for-profit trade associations, ISE has been a joint venture between AVIXA and the Custom Electronic Design & Installation Association (CEDIA) since 2007. As well as ensuring that all proceeds from ISE are re-invested into the industry, these associations also act as the cornerstone of the event’s extensive education programme, which continues to grow year-on-year.

The show attracts professionals from every link in the AV and systems integration value chain, including manufacturers, distributors, dealers, contractors and consultants. Beyond this, the event also acts as a magnet for thousands of technology managers and other end-users from fields such as education, financial services, transportation, visitor attractions, sports arenas, auditoria, retail, and hotels. And, as AV systems become a more integral part of modern buildings, our audience is expanding to include more and more architects, interior designers, property developers and project managers.

Take a peek at what we do: 


What Is the AV Industry?

AV is the intersection of content, technology, and space. The AV industry is the community of manufacturers and myriad professionals that provide the tools and expertise necessary to convey ideas and enhance communication in virtually every human arena. Audiovisual systems and technologies are the building blocks that create memorable experiences and connect us to our world in every way imaginable. It’s the tremendous sound you hear at a concert, the amazing digital displays you see at a museum, the video conferencing system you use at your office, the projected images you see at your corporate gatherings, the cool stuff in the huddle space that connects your devices to the big display, the technical wizardry that’s used in theme parks to amaze and delight you. That is all part of the AV industry. Are you getting the picture?

We’re Part Association, Part Society

We’re part association, part society; a mix of professionals from all over the globe who create those cool experiences you have in meetings, classes, and events in offices, airports, museums, sports arenas, theatres, concerts…

AVNation™ started in 2011 as a small community of friends having fun and wanting to share their knowledge and experiences working with audio visual technology and the av industry in general. Since our first show AVWeek™ we’ve grown considerably over the years, we’re still a community where everyone is welcome to share ideas, make new friends, and celebrate the AV industry. Most importantly, we’re still having fun.

Tim Albright created AVNation for the purpose of bringing high-quality broadcasts (or netcasts) to the AV community. Tim has envisioned building a network of industry professionals who are passionately engaged in furthering the AV industry through education and knowledge. One of the premiere functions of AVNation is to see industry professional provide first-hand knowledge to other professionals across North America and the World. Many of the hosts and people involved with AVNation are industry leaders in various ways.

The first AVNation podcast was the initial episode of AVWeek – “The Pilot,” recorded July 29th, 2011. Ever since that first recording, AVNation has continued to grow its show offerings encompassing all aspects of the AV industry through weekly AVWeek episodes, as well as many additional periodic shows. We continue to have a wide variety of guests including industry professionals who work in or own integration firms and corporate industry leaders.
