The economical use of water, regenerative energies for heat generation and hygienic, clean air in buildings: solutions for a sustainable future are now in greater demand than ever before. And they are to be seen at ISH in Frankfurt from 13 to 17 March 2023. Around 2,000 companies from the sanitation, heating and air-conditioning sector from 53 countries have signed up to present their market-ready innovations in the two sections of the fair, ISH Water and ISH Energy.
Around 900 exhibitors – 80 percent of them from outside Germany – are showing their latest products within the framework of ISH Water in Halls 1 to 6, as well as the ‘Festhalle’ and the ‘Forum’. The extensive spectrum on show includes everything for modern bathrooms, installation technology, software, tools and fastening materials, as well as international sourcing. Besides design, the focus of ISH Water 2023 is on sustainability. Whether regarding materiality, production or durable concepts for inter-generational bathroom design, sustainability is the overarching factor. Of particular interest in this connection is sustainable installation and quality with respect to water as a valuable resource, in addition to energy efficiency when it comes to the supply of hot water.
ISH Brand Manager Stefan Seitz is looking forward to the exhibitors’ presentations: “Having access to sufficient water of drinking quality is no longer as self-evident as it once was. This is something we had to learn in recent years. Therefore, ISH Water is spotlighting sustainability in a variety of facets. And I am delighted that many manufacturers are reflecting this in their presentations. Moreover, I am yet again extremely excited about their breath-taking exhibition stands and the fascinating new bathroom concepts.”
Leading exhibitors from all over the world taking part
In the Bathroom Experience in Halls 3, 4.1 and 4.2, as well as the ‘Festhalle’ and the ‘Forum, visitors will find companies showing new products and innovations for the bathroom: from small, compact bathrooms for urban living to the well-being bathroom for regeneration and relaxation. The companies making presentations include, for example, Antonio Lupi, Bette, Burgbad, Delabie, Duravit, Hansgrohe, Kaldewei, Kludi, KWC, Laufen, Novellini, Roca, Sprinz, Toto, Villeroy & Boch and Vitra.

Kemper, Georg Fischer, Grünbeck, Hans Sasserath, Judo, Roth-Werke, TECE, VALSIR and Wavin.

Within the exhibitor search, a special interest filter provides quick orientation on the most important questions. Here, manufacturers are grouped together who offer products and solutions on specific topics: These topics are:
- Solutions for safe and sustainable drinking water installations

Blend of specialist knowledge, trend themes and networking
As ever, decision makers from the sanitation, heating and air-conditioning sector can look forward to a multi-faceted programme of events at the coming ISH. For the first time, participants are being offered a thematic grouping of events in the form of hotspots. The Water Hotspot is the platform for knowledge transfer and inspiration in Hall 3.1. Knowledge about the latest trends for lifestyle oriented bathrooms, as well as the latest products, can be found at Pop up my Bathroom with four themes that are set to be of decisive significance for holistic bathroom planning in the coming years. Additionally, a discussion forum – the ‘Pop up my Bathroom Atelier’ – with workshops and panel discussions offers a great opportunity for exchanging information on a personal plane. To cater for the consequences of demographic change, the installation trade must satisfy the steep rise in demand for barrier-free and care bathrooms over the coming years. In Hall 3.1, the German Sanitation, Heating and Air Conditioning Association (ZVSHK) presents a complete range of important information and services on the subject of barrier-free bathrooms.
The focus of the Innovation Hotspot is on future-oriented products and ideas. There, the renowned ‘Design Plus powered by ISH’ competition shows 32 future-oriented products distinguished by an optimum combination of sustainability, aesthetics and functionality.
There is a huge number of new products covering a broad spectrum to be found at ISH 2023. Free guided tours of the international meeting place for the sector offer orientation and an opportunity to exchange ideas and opinions with experts. The tours take visitors to selected exhibition stands and highlight the most interesting products and manufacturers from the guide’s point of view.
