In mid-March, ISH 2017 will showcase the latest bathroom products, building services, energy, air-conditioning technology and renewable energies
With a theme of ‘Water. Energy. Life’ and located at the Messe Frankfurt in Frankfurt, Germany, the event will see more than 2,400 exhibitors, including all market and technology leaders, launching their latest products onto the world market from 14 to 18 March 2017. Moreover, ISH also plays a leading role because it is the world's most international meeting place for the sector – in 2015, 61 per cent of exhibitors and 39 per cent of visitors coming from outside Germany.
With its spectrum of future-oriented building-services technology, the biennial trade fair offers a host of solutions meeting current political and economic demands.
The ISH Water section focuses on sustainable sanitation and innovative bathroom design with the motto 'Bathrooms for People’. Design, health, wellness and comfort, as well as resource conservation and drinking water hygiene are some aspects that exhibitors would highlight.
The ISH Energy and Aircontec section emphasises energy efficiency and comfort in buildings. The decisive trends are to be found in the field of efficient, future-oriented technologies and intelligent building-services technology. Basically, the focus will be on the merger of heat and renewable energies. However, digital heating systems and the associated integration of IT into innovative heating technologies will also be an important theme – all brought together under the slogan 'The energy revolution with a bright future – we have the solutions’, so that visitors will be able to see the complete spectrum of innovative building system technology.
In the field of Aircontec, the focal points will include modern home ventilation systems, which embraces the subjects of energy efficiency and comfort in the home, as well as central and decentral solutions for new buildings and modernisation projects.
Turkey was chosen as the partner country of ISH 2017 at the end of June 2015. "With this decision (of selecting Turkey), we have taken account of the increasing significance of Turkey at ISH on both the exhibitor and visitor sides", says Wolfgang Marzin, president and CEO of Messe Frankfurt. “Five percent of Turkish exports come from the sanitation, heating and air-conditioning sector. The international desire to achieve climate targets and the strategic significance of energy autarky are just two reasons for a strong market.”
