IOT Solutions World Congress to co-locate with ISE team
IOTSWC

IOT Solutions World Congress (IOTSWC), which will showcase how disruptive technologies are driving industry transformation, is to join forces with Integrated Systems Europe (ISE), the international professional audiovisual (AV) and systems integration show, in 2022.

Together, the events will provide professionals from multiple industries with an ecosystem for digital transformation. IOTSWC and ISE will be held at Fira de Barcelona’s Gran Via venue on 10-12 and 10-13 May 2022, respectively.

The joint events will provide attendees with a unique opportunity to explore the crossroads between two different sets of disruptive technologies. IOTSWC will be spearheaded by top experts and companies working on artificial intelligence (AI), digital twins, internet of things (IoT) and quantum computing, whilst ISE will deliver leading companies from the professional AV industry and international experts in the field of systems integration in numerous industries. The goal of this cooperation is to highlight the two events’ common ground to offer new ideas and means of collaboration for attendees and exhibitors.

Visitors will be able to access both exhibition areas at no extra cost, whilst delegates registered to the IOTSWC congress programme will benefit from a 50 per cent discount if they wish to register for any ISE conferences – and vice versa.

“We are very excited about this agreement,” said Roger Bou, director of IOTSWC. “At IOTSWC we believe that some of the key technologies we have been showcasing such as AI and the IoT have an incredible transformational potential for the professional AV industry, and likewise, the AV and systems integration industry can help to develop disruptive new solutions for the digital transformation ecosystem.”

ISE is a joint venture between Avixa and Cedia that will have over 700 exhibitors, including innovators such as Barco, Creston, KNX, Kramer, LG, Panasonic, Samsung and Sony. The event will have six technology zones set out over five halls, grouping together exhibitors in the major technology areas, making it simpler for delegates to plan their visit, find and compare the wide variety of solutions they need for their integration projects. The six zones include unified communication and education technology, residential and smart building, multi-technology, digital signage and digital out-of-home, audio, and lighting and staging.

“AV and IT convergence has been the single most important industry trend at ISE over the past decade and the inspiring innovations happening in IoT take this to another level,” said Mike Blackman, director of ISE. “With our two events now happening at the same time and place this May, it is very exciting to be able to work together and explore even more areas of collaboration. The exciting world of pro AV and the inspiring innovations in IoT make all sorts of possibilities a reality.”

Organised by Fira de Barcelona in partnership with the Industry IOT Consortium, IOTSWC will hold its sixth edition under the theme ‘Game-changing technologies’ for industry transformation. The event will gather the leading suppliers of industrial solutions and information technology providers to showcase the latest trends that are providing an edge to companies across many industries and promote collaboration in the tech solutions ecosystem. There will be more than 200 exhibitors, including ABB, Altair, EMnify, Fiware, Hornet Security, Huawei, Kaspersky, RFPD, Relayr and Siemens. IOTSWC will structure its congress programme around five themes including business optimisation, AI, connectivity, security and customer experience.

Featured speakers at IOTSWC will include delegates from companies such as Airbus, Bühler, Dow, Johnson & Johnson, LEGO, Nestlé, PCL Construction and Volkswagen.
