Barcelona & Partners hosts the first ISE Welcome Cocktail

At Barcelona & Partners, we had the honour of hosting the first ISE Welcome Cocktail, organised with the help of Michael Blackman, General Manager of ISE (Integrated Systems Europe) — the world’s leading audiovisual exhibition. 


The event gathered leading ISE exhibitors, such as Sony, Google, Panasonic, Barco, Daktronics, Epic Games, Avixa, among others, as well as key players of the local business ecosystem like Accenture, McCann, Deloitte, CBRE, Caixabank, Dorna, Mediapro, business schools like ESIC and EADA, representatives of Clúster Audiovisual de Catalunya, Acció and the Ajuntament de Barcelona, among others. 



A special welcome speech was given by Michael Blackman and by Montse Puig, CEO of Barcelona & Partners who highlighted the powerful Catalan audiovisual industry. 


The ISE Welcome Cocktail was a great opportunity to connect the audio-visual sector to our city, and this is also thanks to the ISE’s commitment to Barcelona as a city to host this world’s leading audio-visual exhibition. 



Barcelona has a widely respected tradition in the creative industry, and it is an international centre for major events and congresses. The audiovisual sector in the Barcelona region accounts for over 3,600 companies, 6.7 billion euros of turnover and employs 31,000 people. The city also offers Top-level associations, clusters, universities and administrations dedicated to audio-visual innovation.  


From Barcelona & Partners, as a private and selective investment agency, we would like to contribute to growth of the local audiovisual industry, with the attraction of innovative companies and initiatives that will have a major socio-economic impact on our city, Barcelona.
