Dubai, May 17, 2023: Integrate Middle East draws praise from global Pro AV and media technology communities on day two of its debut edition at the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) from May 16–18, 2023.
As well as showcasing the latest trends and technologies from the Pro AV industry, the first day of the exhibition featured a number of sessions and panel discussions at the Integrate ME 2023 Summit. Led by international thought leaders and experts from the sector, topics under analysis ranged from Immersive Digital Experiences for the Hospitality and Healthcare Sector to AI and the Digital Signage Industry, Redefining Visual Experiences and the Evolution of Display Technologies, as well as covering many significant trends and challenges facing the Pro AV eco-system.
Day two of the conference saw the debates continue to include talks on The Critical Role of Audio in the Workplace, which focussed on developing and sustaining positive work culture through audio solutions, and eSports as a Serious Business for AV, which explored potential market opportunities from the titular sector.
Moreover, during the second day of the Integrate Summit stage, Takashi Kudo, Communications Director of international arts collective TeamLab, reaffirmed that TeamLab Phenomena Abu Dhabi will be completed in 2024 and is set to be an immersive, inspirational space at the intersection of art and technology, which will be the first large scale TeamLab project in the MENA region.
He further discussed how digital technology has transformed artistic expression and liberated it from physical constraints, as well as ways that digital technology can make interactive art possible and allow visitors to experience the world around them from a new perspective.
Kudo expressed that, after growing up here, he feels the UAE is like a second home and, once open, the country’s new 17,000 sqm Phenomena will house an environment that generates diverse phenomena shapes and forms the featured artworks, within a distinctive curved architecture that is crucial in giving the artworks a space to develop naturally as if they were life forms.
The summit’s agenda will continue to focus on key subjects, with the closing stage exploring business-critical digital signage, phygital stores with XR, content-driven 3D advertising, remote delivery of events, new revenue streams opened by Pro AV technologies, and more.
