ISH: a major HVAC and water event

What is ISH?

A huge international event for the HVAC and the water industry, the ISH takes place every two years in Frankfurt am Main. After a longer hiatus than usual for the on-site fair, ISH 2023 is highly anticipated. If you can’t make it in person, the event will also be accessible online this year.

ISH showcases new products and an array of practical solutions, with workshops to learn more about products and their installation. The only way is up for the world’s leading trade fair of its kind, with increasing interest among German and international trade visitors. The proof is in the numbers: 45% of German visitors rated it the best HVAC and water event, along with 42% of international visitors1.
