[ISE 2012] Integrated Systems Europe continues its phenomenal growth

With a final registered attendance figure of 40,869, ISE 2012 has delivered the event’s strongest performance to date. This has been achieved in spite of the current financial situation in Europe and the recent problems experienced by the eurozone.

At the official press briefing just prior to the opening of the show, Integrated Systems Events managing director Mike Blackman expressed the hope that attendance would exceed 40,000 for the first time. In fact, that figure had been achieved by 15.00 on the second afternoon of the show.

The total registered attendance is 17% higher than in 2011, continuing a growth trend that has been sustained consistently ever since the first event in Geneva in 2004.

“ISE is now clearly established as the best-attended event of its kind anywhere in the world,” comments Blackman. “To be able to post record numbers in every key area against an uncertain economic backdrop is a fantastic achievement, not just for ISE but for the industry it serves.

“Beyond the statistics, the sheer excitement generated by so many professional people converging on a show full of dynamic new technologies created an atmosphere unsurpassed by any previous ISE.”
