During Integrated Systems Europe 2020, we sat down with Program Director for AVIXA Joseph Valerio about his experience taking 200 students from five different countries in Europe and the UK across the show floor of ISE.
“It’s a great opportunity to show the next generation that this is a great career for them,” Valerio explains, “So we introduce them to certain professionals to give them perspective on career paths and leverage this show to see what technologies are out there and how they can align their passions and their studies to what job opportunities exist at these great companies.”
Through projects like this and the AV Career Day, the AVIXA foundation is promoting an awareness of the industry’s offerings for the next generation of the workforce.

Starting in 2004, Integrated Systems Europe has become one of the largest trade shows for the AV industry. Last year they welcomed over 1300 exhibitors and 81,000 attendees to the RAI Amsterdam Convention Centre. This four-day event has become the starting point for many incredible innovations for both the residential and commercial side of AV. Because of that, AVNation brings their team to walk the floor and cover as much exciting and interesting technology as we can allow, so that if you can’t make it to ISE or are swept up in the trade show minutiae, you can find out everything going on at the show.
