ABISS Digital is Live !

From this year onwards, besides the familiar ABISS in its physical summit / trade fair combination, a digital component will be added. It will be an online meeting place where both visitors and exhibitors will be able to find solutions to their specific problems, make new connections and take expert classes. Registrations for ABISS digital are managed in the same way as for regular registrations. ABISS digital will be live from 1 week before up to 1 week after ABISS. A digital reservation can always be converted into a physical visit as long as there are still free places left.

Green light for trade shows! ABISS is ready for its 6th edition on Thursday 7 October 2021 

The trade fair sector has been inactive for a long time, but the latest consultation committee confirmed what everyone has been waiting for: the official permission to organise physical events such as trade fairs again from 30 July with almost no restrictions. That's more than good news for ABISS 2021, which has grown into a must-visit Benelux event that combines a summit, a networking platform and a trade fair for C-levels and department managers (OT), supported by their colleagues from IT, who are looking for smart and secure solutions for tomorrow's connected and integrated factories! Continue reading...

From a modest summit to a Mecca for industrial digitalisation

In 2016, the Industrialfairs team, which organises several trade fairs in the field of industrial technology, launched a project called ABISS. Back then, it was a small summit, featuring 32 technology partners, 260 participants and 14 highly regarded speakers covering topics such as industrial digitalisation, industry 4.0 and IoT. This very successful experience resulted in an annual growth in the number of visitors and technology partners present at the event. All this with a close monitoring of the content: apps, software and solutions for smart and connected factories. After a first-class edition in 2019 – with a staggering 76 technology partners and 1048 visitors – and despite the contingencies resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, a limited edition was organised in 2020, bringing together around 70 technology partners and a maximum of 800 physical visitors. For the first time – given the ever-growing range of technologies and players – ABISS has been divided into 3 main themes, namely: Industry of Things, Intelligence of Things and Security of Things. This is already setting the tone for the 6th edition of ABISS, which will be bigger than ever!

Today, ABISS has grown into a must-visit Benelux event that combines a summit, a networking platform and a trade fair for C-levels and department managers (OT), supported by their colleagues from IT, who are looking for smart and secure solutions for tomorrow's connected and integrated factories!
