The pre-summer VIP networking event for innovative industrial automation
 INE XL: 27 May 2021 in Kortrijk Xpo

One swallow does not make a spring – and that goes for all the positive rumours about the upcoming arrival of vaccines...  The Industrialfairs Team therefore decided to change the timing of INE XL (Indumation Network Event) in Kortrijk Xpo, so that both visitors and exhibitors can benefit from improved market conditions and a better mindset after a period of tightened measures due to the Coronavirus.  We would therefore like to inform you that INE XL 2021 will take place on Thursday 27 May 2021 in Kortrijk Xpo, to make sure that people can network live again in a safe, pleasant and efficient manner.
We already knew it: the 4th edition of INE (Indumation Network Event) will be an XL edition, in the run-up to the larger automation fair 2022.  More than 100 technology partners have already registered for this XL edition for the original date (4 March). 

This week, however, in consultation with our partners Agoria and Indumotion, and the core committee of technology players, the decision was made to set a new date.  Thursday 27 May will be the date on which 140 technology partners will meet some 1,200 C-levels and heads of departments from the industry.  The management of technology partners and the visitors will then be able to network and discuss new trends and solutions for automating, digitalising and optimising industrial flows and processes.  Components, solutions, hardware and software for factory, process and infrastructure automation will be covered along 7 technology routes.  Networking will be possible indoors and outdoors, in an informal, effective and high-end setting, and without any commercial pressure.  A pre-summer touch will brighten up the 5 mood boxes, the lounges and catering.

Following multiple lockdowns, the sector is eager to meet people in person, as the first rays of the sun lighten the sky, and to come up with refreshing insights into tomorrow's automation.  INE XL can be visited as a VIP at the invitation of one of the 140 technology partners.  The invitation campaign will start at the beginning of April 2021.  Candidates who wish to register as a technology partner can do so here.

The event will be hybrid, meaning that the 'on-site' fair will be enhanced by an interactive online platform.  Just like our most recent trade shows (cf. ABISS), all Industrialfairs events will have digital twins.  The Industrialfairs app has been further developed to allow everyone to enjoy chats, meet and matches on site and online – before, during and after our events.
