ISE News Conferences to explore AV solutions for higher education and enterprise

AVIXA, co-owners of ISE, will host two half-day conferences at the show. The events will take a deep dive into the topics of AV solutions

for higher education

and enterprises, respectively, with content to help attendees implement innovative technolo- gy experiences.

"Our conference program for ISE 2019 features a wide range of experts who will offer their unique perspectives on AV's role in enhancing higher education and enterprise spaces," said Da- vid Labuskes, CTS, CAE, RCDD, Chief Executive Officer of AVIXA. "In forums like this, when bril- liant minds are gathered, the dia- logue and ideas shared are never predictable and always fascinat- ing. We're excited for attendees to participate in these interactive sessions that will push the AV conversation forward."

The conference "What's Next... Higher Education Integrated Ex- perience Design" will focus on the transformation in the design of learning and collaboration spaces across college campus- es. Held in partnership with the European University Information Systems (EUNIS) and Standing Conference for Heads of Media Services (SCHOMS), the confer- ence takes place on Tues., Feb. 5, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Moder- ator Dr. Gill Ferrell, Lead Consul- tant for Aspire, will guide attend- ees through the discussion, with expert speakers lending insights and real-world examples. Ferrell will be joined by James Rutherford, Learning Spaces Specialist, and Dom Pates, Ed- ucational Technologist, both of City University of London, who will highlight different perspec- tives of approaching learning spaces for face-to-face teaching. Also joining the conference, from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, are Scott Menter, CTS, Manager of Classroom Technol- ogy Services, and Frank Alaimo, Audio Visual Systems Specialist.
