ISH, the world’s leading trade fair for the combination of water and energy, is changing its sequence of days. In future, the event will begin on Monday, instead of Tuesday, as in the past. “With the new sequence of days, we are taking account of the wishes of our exhibitors. Changing the sequence to Monday to Friday will give trade visitors an extra working day at the fair. At the same time, travelling will be more convenient for international visitors”, says Wolfgang Marzin, President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Messe Frankfurt.
In line with the recommendation of the ISH Advisory Council and the exhibitors, the change in the sequence of days was agreed by a majority of the ISH patrons – the Federation of the German Heating Industry (BDH), Association of Air Conditioning and Ventilation in Buildings (FGK), Association of the German Sanitation Industry (VDS), German Association for Energy Efficiency in Building Services (VdZ) and The German Sanitation, Heating and Air Conditioning Association (ZVSHK) – following the last edition of the fair.
The next ISH will be held from 11 to 15 March 2019 (Monday to Friday). As in the past, the fair will be open to private visitors on the last day.
