During Maintenance NEXT more than 250 national and international exhibitors will showcase their most important innovations in the field of (industrial) maintenance and there will be an extensive knowledge program throughout the entirety of the exhibition. The main focus will lie on the most important themes in the sector: Smart industry, Sustainability, Asset performance management, Human factor, and Safety.

The full program of 2023 will be published later on.

Asset Management

There are many different ideas, concepts, and methods for Asset Management. Think of RCM, FMEC, VDM, and more.

Safety

Safety is, of course, a crucial part of maintenance. Maintenance technicians have to be capable of inspecting, repairing, and maintaining assets safely. Besides that, the maintenance should also ensure the safety of the assets’ end users. But the central focus is not only on physical safety, also digital safety in the shape of cyber security is part of this theme.

Sustainability

It is important to take action to guarantee the survival of our earth. Within maintenance we can do a lot to fight climate change: remanufacturing, circular and expanding of lifecycles, using sustainable materials, working on the energy transition and more.

Human Factor

The shortage of technical staff is one of the bigger problems within maintenance. How are we going to make young professionals excited to be a part of one of our biggest and most important global industries? And how are we going to secure the knowledge of our aging professionals?

Smart Industry

Artificial Intelligence, Digital Twins, Exoskeletons and more; Maintenance 4.0 gets smarter every day. For this theme, we will follow all of the important developments within the Smart Industry.
