Welcome to ISH

ISH is the world’s leading trade fair focusing on the responsible management of water and energy in buildings. It sets trends for modern bathroom design, sustainable heating and air-conditioning technology as well as intelligent home systems.

‘ISH 2021 will be greatly influenced by the opportunities arising from the EU’s Green Deal climate strategy, the ambitious climate targets of which can be achieved using technological means. ISH 2021 will present solutions for the heating market.’

Michael Hilpert, President, Federation of the German Heating Industry (BDH)

‘ISH 2021 is essential because questions concerning room-air quality and health care in buildings must be discussed urgently and comprehensively within the framework of a direct dialogue with plant and building operators.’

Günther Mertz, Managing Director, FGK, Association of Air Conditioning and Ventilation in Buildings

‘ISH is the most important venue for meeting all business partners and finding out at first-hand about new products, systems and innovations in the shortest possible time.’

Dr Michael Pietsch, President of the VdZ, Forum for Energy Efficiency in Building Services Technology

‘Last but not least, market monitoring is nowhere more effective than at a fair where every company is doing its best. Naturally, all of this is also possible with distancing and hygiene regulations. We are looking forward to ISH 2021 with growing anticipation!’

Jens Wischmann, Managing Director, VDS, German Sanitary Industry Association

‘For the installation trade and the sector as a whole, ISH 2021 is THE sign of a return to growth and an indication of the expertise with respect to important, system-relevant social spheres that have become even more relevant during the crisis.’

Michael Hilpert, President of the German Sanitation, Heating and Air Conditioning Association (ZVSHK)

‘We are confident that, in close cooperation with hygiene experts and the public-health authorities, Messe Frankfurt is pursuing a sustainable, flexible and adaptable concept, which means that it will be safe to visit the exhibition halls in March 2021.’

Dr. Hans Henning, Chief Executive, German Wholesale Association for Building Technology

‘Now that we have had to get used to a variety of restrictions and uncertainties during the Corona time, we are looking forward optimistically to 2021 and hope that we will be able to take a leap forward into a new normality with ISH in the first quarter of 2021.’

Dr Peter Hug, Managing Director, VDMA Building Control and Management

‘It is perfectly natural for Grünbeck to take part in ISH 2021 with a stand design adapted to the current situation and in a significantly modified setting.’

Dr Günter Stoll, CEO, Grünbeck

‘With the ISH in March 2021, we are staging the first globally significant event for the sanitary, heating and air-conditioning sectors since Corona erupted. The industry urgently needs this platform now in order to really pick up speed again.’

Wolfgang Marzin, President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Messe Frankfurt GmbH

Andreas Cloer, GEBRO HERWIG Haustechnik GmbH:

‘I am going to ISH because I am looking for direct contact with the exhibitors and manufacturers. You can't discuss everything via a video conference. Personal meetings provide sounder and deeper information.’
