Four-day conference programme at ISE 2023

New at ISE 2023, the line-up of events sees CEDIA producing the Smart Home Technology conference and AVIXA programming the other conferences and inaugural Tech Talks, to bring deep industry insight backed by global organizations that track trends daily. In addition, the conferences will take place in a new home - the modern, purpose-built conference rooms on the upper level of the Fira Gran Via - for an even better attendee experience.

The four-day programme of events starts with:

It will also look at the role of IT and OT as Big Data, AI and digital twin technology change the building network landscape.

Smart Home Technology Conference
The Smart Home Technology Conference, formerly called CEDIA’s Professional Development Programme, runs Tuesday through to Friday in CC1 and will see CEDIA deliver more than 65 hours of content. This conference covers a wide range of industry trends like wellness, hospitality, and assisted living, as well as hot topics like gaming, AI, and slow technology. Designed for delegates to choose sessions throughout the week, attendees can book sessions ‘a la carte’ or purchase a CEDIA Pass which provides access to the entire programme.

Content Production & Distribution Summit
Another new summit for 2023 is the Content Production & Distribution Summit taking place on Tuesday 31 January in CC5.3.
