Integrated Systems Europe is launching a monthly series of free digital events based around key AV technology areas called the RISE Spotlight, kicking it off with a closer look at unified communications and collaboration on Nov. 24 dubbed Workspace Evolution, starting at 8 a.m. ET.

Produced in association with TNW, each RISE Spotlight session will feature global subject experts, technology entrepreneurs and startups.

“With the increased shift to remote working and the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, this timely subject provides attendees with valuable learning opportunities and insights into the future development of work and workspaces,” the announcement says.

ISE officials announced recently that the 2021 edition slated for Barcelona, Spain, was being postponed from February to June as the coronavirus pandemic continues its spread around the world and shows a resurgence in parts of Europe.

ISE managing director Mike Blackman had said ISE 2021 planning included a digital component thanks to the association’s work with TNW and the RISE Spotlight series represents that partnership.

Inside the RISE Spotlight Series

Here’s a look at some of the sessions that will be part of the first RISE Spotlight:

Reporter Roundtable

On the Sofa
