On 29 October 2013 a new ETP founded by the former Net!Works and ISI ETPs has been launched in Brussels in a event that was attended by 160 participants. The name and brand of the new ETP is yet to be defined. In the morning of the day, directly before the launch event, the last GAs of Net!Works and ISI took place, after which both ETPs were closed down.
