Interactive virtual visit of the future home of the ISE

Fira de Barcelona – Gran Via – South Entrance

It’s just a couple of days until the first ISE live event is going to take place in Barcelona – of course under the influence and restrictions of the current regulations as a consequence of the ongoing Corona pandemic. For this reason, the local event at the beginning of June will be attended by many, but probably not be visited in person by everybody who would attend an ISE show in normal years. Therefore, we want to briefly introduce and make you acquainted with the new home of the ISE at the Fira de Barcelona Gran Via. You can click on the loudspeaker icon to listen to an audio commentary, the “Info” icon brings you back to the floor plan. There, the green markers can be clicked to teleport you to different location in the venue.

The Fira de Barcelona is just the opposite of a small trade show venue. Every year, the two exhibition centers Montjuïc in the city center and in normal years Gran Via hosts no less than 140 trade fairs with a total of 30,000 exhibitors and over 2.5 million visitors, including the well-known Mobile World Congress. ISE 2018 hosted 1,296 exhibitors in 15 halls at the RAI with a total of 53,000m² of exhibition space. Gran Via alone has to offer 240,000m² of exhibition space in eight halls – enough reserve for future growth of ISE when the Corona pandemic.
