ISH, the world’s leading trade fair for HVAC + Water is all set to have an expanded showcase of building-services technology to visitors from the world over.
When one ISH is over, the next ISH begins. The success story of the leading international fair is now due to be continued from 22 to 26 March 2021; and exhibitors can sign up as from today.
‘Water. Energy. Life’ is the DNA of ISH and stands for modern bathroom design, sustainable heating and air-conditioning technology, combined with intelligent homes. The world’s number 1 rendezvous for the sector covers numerous practical solutions for some of the major issues of our time: achieving climate targets, conservation of resources through the use of renewable energies, ever increasing digitalisation and smart technologies.
Specialists in the field from all over the world will meet up in Frankfurt am Main from 22 to 26 March 2021 (Monday to Friday). The registration period for exhibitors has already begun – with attractive early-bird rates and benefits for those registering before 31 January 2020. Exhibitors this year will be able to enjoy the advantages of a completely new portal, which significantly simplifies the registration process and makes it more efficient.
Following the impressive and overwhelming success of the restructured ISH Energy section at ISH 2019, it is now the turn of ISH Water – taking account of various building considerations. In specific terms, the changes to ISH for 2021 are as follows: installation engineering and software which used to be located in Hall 5 at ISH 2019 will, from 2021, again exhibit in Halls 6.0 and 6.1. Tools and fastenings will move to Hall 6.2 and the Bathroom Experience will be relocated back to Hall 4.2. The International Sourcing section will move from Hall 1.2 to Hall 1.1.
In 2019 around 190,000 visitors from 161 countries made their way to Frankfurt Fair and Exhibition Centre to discover the latest innovations and trends at ISH 2019. For five days, 2,532 exhibitors (868 from Germany, 1,664 from abroad) from 57 countries presented their new products for the first time in Frankfurt am Main. At the same time, a significantly higher level of internationality meant that ISH became even more relevant: 66 percent of exhibitors (2017: 64 percent) and almost 48 percent of visitors (2017: around 40 percent) came from outside Germany.
