For those in attendance at ISE 2023, there was no doubt that this was very much a return to normality for the European tradeshow scene. Welcoming 58,107 unique attendees from 155 countries, the tradeshow was certainly busy to say the least. In among the myriad meetings and stand parties, for the second year running, TPi was asked to bring together some of leading experts from the world of live touring to discuss the future of the events industry.
Hosted by TPi Editor, Stew Hume, the Live Events Summit took place on the Thursday of show, off the main show floor on the upper level of the FIRA Barcelona. The event – which was attended by close to 100 visitors – was all part of the wider conference programming, overseen by AVIXA.
