Integrated Systems Europe, an event for AV and systems integration, has released a statement affirming its commitment to going ahead from 1-4 June 2021 in Barcelona.
The event is organised by AVIXA, which recently postponed its InfoComm 2021 show to October 2021, taking place in Florida.
ISE managing director Mike Blackman clarified that ISE is still planned for its June dates, saying: “Whilst we recognise there continue to be challenges ahead, we are in touch with government and the relevant health authorities to constantly monitor the situation.
“None of us can predict how the situation will look in June, but we are hopeful that by the second quarter of 2021 we will see the world return to a new ‘normal’ with vaccines being rapidly delivered in many countries around the world.
“We understand our exhibitors and partners need to make commitments that will incur cost and we do not wish to burden them unnecessarily. For this reason, if circumstances impact our ability to host an in-person event and we are forced to cancel this element of ISE, we will make this decision by 1 March.
“With the backdrop of the global pandemic, our priority in recent months has been devising the means to deliver a safe and secure event for all exhibitors and visitors and we have been working closely with the City of Barcelona, the venue and relevant authorities.”
