Transform Products to Services

Build long-lasting, sustainable customer relationships

Now is the time to transform your products to services, transform your business model to Fire-and-Remember model, introduce mass-customization for your products, and thus get to a new level of servitization with today’s technologies.

Why Attend SPIME 2022


Having been established in 2015, the SPIME conference has remained as an annual event organized by BaseN Corporation. The name SPIME corresponds to the concept of spime as the core of BaseN Platform – a logical and digital embodiment of anything. “Spime” term itself was first coined by Bruce Sterling in 2005, and since the spime concept plays a fundamental role in the BaseN solutions offering, the term has also been applied to name one of the most important reoccurring events for BaseN Corporation.  

You’re welcome to check out the highlights of previous SPIME conferences here.


Every year, SPIME conferences have been the platforms where we at BaseN got to gather business delegates, developers, digital enthusiasts, and anyone interested in reinventing or enhancing their businesses with digitalization. It is also the place where we got to meet and interact with driven young talents.
