ISE 2023 sets new records in Barcelona   

The 2023 edition of the world’s leading audiovisual and systems integration exhibition ISE (31 January-3 February 2023) surpassed all expectations as it delivered record visitor numbers, stimulating new content and appearances from visiting royalty and political dignitaries at the Fira Gran Via Barcelona.

Returning to its normal Jan/Feb timeslot in the AV calendar, ISE 2023 had 58,107 unique attendees from 155 countries, alongside record-breaking occupation in the city’s hotels, bars and entertainment venues, and with exhibitors reporting unparalleled footfall on booths across the largest ever ISE show floor.

Mike Blackman, Managing Director of Integrated Systems Events, commented: “It’s been an extraordinary week and it’s hugely gratifying for us to look back and realise we’ve delivered an exceptional show for our industry and the wonderful city of Barcelona. We’ve had unprecedented visitor levels to the show, so much inspiring content and features on display, and ground-breaking visits from the King of Spain on Tuesday and the President of Catalonia on Thursday to add both a royal and a political seal of approval to the show. This week at ISE 2023 confirms that we can safely say the global AV and systems integration industry is back with an impressive bang!”

The first day of the show set the tone for the week with the highest number of opening day visitors ever for an ISE show, visiting the record 56,870sqm of floorspace over the show’s 6 halls and the Audio Demo Rooms, where iconic French pioneer of electronic music Jean-Michel Jarre unveiled his latest album. The trend continued for the rest of the week with a final total of 58,107 attendees to ISE, making 133,606 visits to the show floor. On the first day, King Felipe VI of Spain took a tour of the show floor stopping by a few booths to take in a small sample of the technology on display. The Royal Party was accompanied by Ada Colau, Mayor of Barcelona, Núria Marín, Mayor of L’Hospitalet de Llobregat, Laia Bonet, 3rd Deputy Mayor of Barcelona. Pere Aragones, President of the Government of Catalonia also visited ISE and took time to visit some of the 70 Catalan-based companies exhibiting at the Gran Via, Fira Barcelona this week. 

Exhibitors were united in their praise for ISE 2023. Of particular note was the brand-new Content Production and Distribution zone making its debut in Hall 6. Offering a blend of creativity and technical solutions the new zone provided inspiration for integrators and end-users in this fast-growing and exciting area. Following this auspicious beginning the zone will be back, in an even more impressive version for 2024. ISE returns to Barcelona on Tuesday 30 January – Friday 2 February 2024.
