ISCVEx Coombe Abbey 20th March 2024 220The Institute of Sound, Communications and Visual Engineers (ISCVE) are celebrating the overwhelming success of ISCVEx 2024, an event that has notably marked its presence in the sound, communications, and audio visual industries. The two-day symposium, which took place from 19-20 March at the historic Coombe Abbey near Coventry, brought together more than 250 attendees in a compelling showcase of knowledge, technology and community.

ISCVE hosted an enriching line-up, which commenced with an engaging AGM and featured an illuminating members presentation from Jason Williams MInstSCVE on Species AI Capture – The challenges and rewards of working on environmental and conservation projects.

Participants then revelled in the camaraderie and insights exchanged at the Networking Dinner, complemented by an exhilarating performance by The Pub Choir.
