In rAVe Europe’s 4th Annual ISE Stand Report, we find the landscape of stands at ISE 2015 changes but Samsung remains in first place, increasing its stand size once again. (Not that they needed to increase in size: their stand is more than 400 sq. meters larger than the Number 2 ranking.)
Our first chart is based on “combined” size as a number of manufacturers take smaller spaces to supplement their large stands. The combined space best represents their total investment in ISE.
Panasonic and LG (2nd and 3rd largest respectively) both improved their rankings from last year, as did Epson (7th). Mitsubishi kept their main stand but dropped their ancillary space and so fell from 4th to 11th in the rankings.
Microsoft entered the ranks of top exhibitors, earning much better reviews with their ISE 2015 participation than with their start at InfoComm in USA last year (where they were criticized for not having any significant product showings on the stand).
While the “300 square meter and above” crowd fights it out for top rankings, more exhibitors joined in the “100 sq m and above” as the ISE competition for attention grows.
