What is ‘NetZero Events’, the international commitment of the MICE industry? What do ChatGPT and artificial intelligence for events mean? Companies still far from defining sustainability targets in MICE
Finally, like other international fairs (IMEX Frankfurt announced a few days ago that the event was also delayed to spring) ISE is postponed three months, and goes from being held from February 1 to 4, to May 10 to 13, 2022 at the Fira de Barcelona Gran Vía. A reasonable decision that, rather than being concerned, indicates that we will progressively return to normalcy, since major events are postponed but none of them are proposing their cancellation. Let us remember that the CES has just been held face to face, without the overwhelming figures for 2020 (more than 100,000 attendees), but with the presence of more than 40,000 people and 2,300 companies in this edition. Mobile is also maintained, and FITUR announced yesterday at a press conference that it expects almost 7,000 attendees from 107 countries from January 19 to 23 at IFEMA (Madrid).

Mike Blackman, Managing Director of Integrated Systems Events, said today: “We’ve been closely monitoring the conditions in Europe and have been working hard on your behalf to balance health and safety concerns with the need for commerce and in-person interaction.  It’s been a challenging time for so many over the past two years, and whilst we cannot wait to meet up with everyone at ISE 2022, listening to our exhibitors, owners and stakeholders, we have agreed the best course of action is to postpone the show edition for three months.

“By moving the event to the spring, it provides time for our community to rebalance and for confidence in international travel and meetings to resume. We will be working closely with all our exhibitors and stakeholders to ensure a smooth transition to the new dates. We look forward to hosting the global AV community at ISE 2022 in May in our new home in Barcelona.”

David Labuskes, CEO, AVIXA commented: “While balancing the commitment to both commerce and gathering has been difficult in these uncertain times, we believe the postponement of the ISE show until May does just that.  Our community hungers for the opportunity to reconvene in 2022. This schedule makes that all the more possible for all of us.  Beginning with ISE, we are looking forward to the summer of AV where we will have the opportunity to come together at InfoComm in June and InfoComm Beijing in July – it could not be a better way to gather and reinforce the opportunities and success for our industry.”

Integrated Systems Europe, ISE 2022, will take place at the Fira de Barcelona Gran Vía on 10-13 May 2022. The ISE Conference programme runs from Monday 9 May through to Friday 13 May 2022.  For more information, please visit
