Nicole Verardi

Senior Director of Marketing, AVIXA

When I first started in AV, I remember hearing how AV professionals really care about the human experience, not just the tech. And it's true! I love connecting the dots to help people find the AV resources they need, building communities where people come together and being a part of such a vibrant (and welcoming) industry.

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.

Sean Wargo

Sr. Director, Market Intelligence, AVIXA

Helping lead the charge of AVIXA's research efforts into the trends and opportunities in the pro AV industry. When not digging into data, speaking and writing about the trends, or discussing where to focus our research efforts next, I enjoy spending time outdoors on walks, hikes or fishing adventures. Though I also have a soft spot for consuming AV content in my DIY home theater, thanks to a love for good audio I get honest from my Dad!

David Labuskes

CEO, Audiovisual and Integrated Experience Association

I’m a has-been geek turned manager, turned executive, turned (hopefully) into leader.  I love technology and even more I love people.  So what I find really interesting is the intersection of people and technology…and in so many ways, that’s my definition of AV.
