[Tradefair] ABISS

October 5, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

in 2016, the team of Industrialfairs, organizer of several technical-industrial fairs, launched the ABISS project. A small summit with 32 technology partners, 260 participants and 14 high-profile keynotes on industrial digitalization, Industry 4.0 and IoT. A bull’s eye that led to annually growing circulations among visitors and technology partners. And that’s with strict monitoring of the content: Apps, software and solutions for the smart and connected factory(ies) of tomorrow.

In 2022, ABISS welcomed no fewer than 1089 physical and digital visitors. ABISS has become “the “place to be” for management and OT-IT teams from the Benelux industry looking for solutions for digital processes in their company. The structure of a 1-day event where you can immediately test the combined knowledge of 14 IoT experts and future factories on an exhibition floor remains unchanged. The range of knowledge from the experts and the range of technologies and partners is divided into 3 main themes, namely: industry of things, intelligence of things and security of things. The tone for the upcoming and 8th edition of ABISS is already set!

Since then, ABISS has evolved into the Benelux summit, network, and exhibition combo for in-house C-levels and department heads (OT), supported by IT, who are seeking smart and safe solutions for the connected and integrated factory of the future.
