ISH from 13 to 17 March 2023 is to be held under the motto, ‘Solutions for a sustainable future’. For five days, everything at the trade fair for HVAC + Water will revolve around innovations that contribute to achieving climate-protection targets and a responsible and efficient use of resources. “The interim result is a source of growing anticipation for us. At present, we expect around 2,000 exhibitors to participate and take advantage of the power of attraction exercised by ISH for their businesses. They are spread fairly evenly across the two main sections of the fair, ISH Water and ISH Energy. Accordingly, the coming ISH is an unrivalled opportunity for them to present their solutions to an international audience of trade visitors, to profit from networking effects and to exchange valuable knowledge”, explains Stefan Seitz, ISH Brand Management Director. With 70 percent of exhibitors coming from outside Germany, the 2023 edition of the world’s biggest meeting place for the sanitaryware, heating and air-conditioning sector is distinguished by a high level of internationality. Besides the many German companies, the majority of exhibitors will be making their way to Frankfurt from Italy, Turkey, Spain, China, Poland, France, the Netherlands, Austria, Belgium, Sweden and Switzerland. They are spread across the two main sections of the fair, ISH Water and ISH Energy. The focus of the ISH Water section is on modern bathroom design and sustainable technology in the use of water as a valuable resource. In Halls 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6, visitors will find innovative products and solutions for the lifestyle-oriented bathroom, a hygienic drinking-water installation, quick and easy installation and fastening technologies and software solutions. The spectrum of products at ISH Energy in Halls 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12 ranges from innovative heat generation, especially sustainable heat-pump technology, modern heat distribution, delivery and systems, via intelligent home and building automation, to cooling, air-conditioning and ventilation technology under the motto, ‘Air is essential for life’.
The top themes: the future in sight
“Solutions for a sustainable future’ is the motto of ISH 2023 where everything will revolve around innovations that contribute to achieving climate-protection targets and a responsible and efficient use of resources. Buildings, which account for around 40 percent of energy consumption, can play an important role in this. Thus, sustainability is the most important issue facing the sector and the determining factor for all top themes. In the ISH Energy section, the focus is on the expansion of renewable energies, decarbonisation, greater energy efficiency, heat-pump technology and the use of hydrogen. This is reflected by the top themes, ‘Solutions for Heat Transition and Climate Protection’ and ‘Energy Efficiency & Sustainability’. An integral part of ISH, the subject of air, also makes an important contribution to the superordinate goal of CO2 reduction and energy saving and will be given due prominence in 2023 by the top theme of ‘Indoor Air Quality’. In the ISH Water section, the spotlight with ‘Resource Water’ is on the sustainable use and supply-side security of drinking water. The second top theme, the ‘Sustainable Bathroom’ puts the emphasis on ecological factors in the bathroom.
