Integrated Systems Events introduces RISE Spotlights

Integrated Systems Events, the organizer of the Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) show, announces a monthly series of free-to-attend digital events and engaging content.

Launching this month, RISE Spotlights are a unique forum for thought leadership and opinion, aiming to spark conversation in the industry, as well as drive engagement between ISE attendees, exhibitors and partners in advance of ISE 2021.  

The monthly two-hour RISE Spotlight events will be produced in partnership with The Next Web (TNW), a world-leading technology media brand with extensive reach among global and technology businesses. TNW will support the digital events with unique content from global subject experts, technology entrepreneurs and start-ups.

The monthly Spotlights will focus on key solutions areas at ISE 2021. The first RISE Spotlight, at 14:00 CET (13:00 GMT) on Tuesday 24 November, will center around unified communications and collaboration technologies and take the theme of ‘Workspace Evolution’.
