Sure, you’re attending Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) 2020 to learn and be inspired, but you’re also excited to network with your peers and drop in at some top-notch events.

Make the most of ISE 2020 with my top three tips:

  • Plan your networking situation
    I know, sometimes spontaneous event hopping is best, but, because there are so many gatherings at ISE, you’ll want to narrow your options, especially if there’s something you’re keen to attend.
  • Get your RSVPs in now
    Most events have an RSVP/registration option. If there is one, it’s wise to register sooner rather than later. You’ll save yourself the time and effort of registering at the door, or worse, getting turned away due to the space reaching capacity.
  • Getting to a party early is not a faux pas
    Last year, there were 81,268 registered attendees. That means events are going to get crowded. AVIXA™ veterans trekking to ISE recommend arriving early to your highest-priority event. You’ll be able to beat the crowds — and it will get packed — in grabbing drinks, snagging seats, and nabbing the best nibbles.

While all gatherings will be worthwhile, I’ve picked a few not to be missed:

Diversity Council Forum

Join the AVIXA Diversity Council for an enriching opportunity to learn about tools and strategies to become effective change agents for diversity and inclusion in the AV industry.

Women’s Council Forum

The forum will be led by the Hon.
