ISH 2021 – Full steam ahead

3 Dec 2019

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. ISH Water is to be restructured: the platform ‘Fire & Flame’ is all set to be launched.

‘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.

ISH Water on the move

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 from Hall 1.1 to Hall 4.2. The International Sourcing section will move from Hall 1.2 to Hall 1.1.

New platform - Fire & Flame

ISH is a major driver of innovation and is, thus, the ideal place to see the energy revolution unfolding before your eyes. The proportion of renewable fuel sources, such as wood, continues to grow. The demand for CO2-neutral solutions is higher than ever. And that is why the previous product group ‘Heating with Wood’ is to be ratcheted up to a whole new level for ISH 2021. Fire & Flame – Woodheating Solutions will cover individual fireplaces and woodburners, pellets, biomass and exhaust gas technology (Halls 9.2 and 11.1), together with future heating technologies involving wood - the number one renewable fuel. These technologies not only meet the requirements of tomorrow, at the same time, they delight with their aesthetic design. You can find further information on this at:
