ISH will be launching both physically and digitally in 2023. The platform on the web, the ISH Digital Extension, is already open for exhibitors, visitors and journalists. Find new contacts via AI-supported matchmaking or arrange appointments during the fair. Chat with new business partners? That's possible too, of course. You can also offer your product presentations as streaming in thematically appropriate channels. The appointment function including video call is available until 24 March. Until 30 April, the platform is still open to everyone, incl. chat function.

What is possible, how the platform works, where the daily programme items are and much more can already be found out in the videos on the digital platform.
