ISH digital 2021

As a result of the course taken by the pandemic, Messe Frankfurt will not be holding any of its own physical trade fairs at the Frankfurt exhibition grounds between January and March 2021. So, ISH will be taking place as a purely digital event in 2021, with a wide range of digital features on offer.

‘As a co-patron of ISH, the BDH supports the decision of Messe Frankfurt to hold ISH 2021 as a digital event. The critical development of the corona pandemic at the end of the summer vacations, especially in target countries of Europe and in the USA, are reasons for the responsible decision taken by Messe Frankfurt.’

Uwe Glock, Präsident, BDH, Bundesverband der Deutschen Heizungsindustrie e.V.

‘As alternative to the physical fair, digital ISH 2021 represents an informative and attractive forum for exhibitors and visitors. There, with the aid of modern digital tools, the air-conditioning and ventilation sector will offer building and plant operators a comprehensive demonstration of the interrelationship between energy efficiency, interior air quality and health and infection protection. I can only encourage both demand and supply sides to make intensive use of this digital option. We will certainly do so!’

Günther Mertz, Geschäftsführer, Fachverband Gebäude Klima (FGK)

‘The decision to hold a digital ISH 2021 was taken jointly by the conceptual patrons of the fair. It is essential we keep this platform, especially with regard to new products and trends. We will have to see in what way the sector continues to support us. The signs so far are auspicious.’

Jens Wischmann, Geschäftsführer, VDS, Vereinigung Deutsche Sanitärwirtschaft e.V.

‘In many cases, new products and trends emerge against the background of special and major challenges. Now, we are rising to meet one such challenge with a digital ISH. Its exhibitors and visitors have always been highly innovative and solution oriented. All these qualities represent a very solid foundation for the digital edition of the fair to be a success, too.’

Dr. Michael Pietsch, Präsident VdZ, Forum für Energieeffizienz in der Gebäudetechnik e.V.

‘The coming edition of the most important trade fair for our sector is to be held in the digital sphere for the first time. It has not been cancelled or postponed. It will be a digital platform on which our market partners can present their most important new products. A digital ISH 2021 is much better than no ISH 2021. The ZVSHK association will do everything possible to draw the attention of trade visitors who would otherwise have populated the exhibition halls to ISH digital.’

Michael Hilpert, Präsident ZVSHK

‘Due to the course of developments currently being taken by the corona pandemic, we will not hold any physical trade fairs at Frankfurt Fair and Exhibition Centre from January until the end of March 2021. Exceptionally, therefore, we are organising a purely digital ISH as the sector’s main virtual platform for business and the exchange of knowledge. We are working flat out on the development of attractive packages and will inform our exhibitors about them in October.’

Wolfgang Marzin, Vorsitzender der Geschäftsführung der Messe Frankfurt GmbH
