From a modest summit to a true Mecca of the digital transformation of industry

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.

In 2023, ABISS welcomed no less than 1,248 physical and digital visitors. ABISS has therefore clearly become the place to be for OT and IT teams in the Benelux who are looking for solutions for the digital processes implemented within their organisation. The concept of a one-day event where you can immediately test the combined knowledge of 14 experts in IoT and factories of the future under one roof remains unchanged. The spectrum of knowledge of the experts, as well as the range of technologies and partners, are organised around three main themes, namely Industry of Things, Intelligence of Things and Security of Things. The tone for the next and 9th edition of ABISS has already been set!

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!
