World-leading trade fair

Where professional tradespeople, ambitious bathroom planners and enterprising architects meet the market leaders of the bathroom sector.

With its two areas of focus – ISH Energy and ISH Water – the ISH showcases the entire spectrum of solutions for planning and implementing complex systems for the home.

The ISH stands for modern bathroom design, sustainable heating and air conditioning technology and smart living.

The world’s biggest exhibition space for the HVAC and bathroom sector showcases an array of practical solutions for the most important issues of our time:

the achievement of climate protection goals, the conservation of resources through the use of renewable energies, increasing digitalisation, smart technologies and higher creative standards when it comes to the planning and implementation of bathrooms.

Dialogue on an equal footing

ISH provides spaces for dialogue, formats for knowledge transfer and opportunities for socialising.

Concepts for both in front of and behind the wall are explained and illustrated on the basis of the original products by competent representatives of the exhibitors. Few fairs can rival the ISH when it comes to facilitating intense dialogue between exhibitors and trade visitors on an equal footing, with equal weight given to technology, creativity and practical implementation. The resulting knowledge advantage is an added value that has a lasting impact. Communication is a top priority – not just in the form of a dialogue between professionals, but in the sense of socialising when the trade fair closes its doors for the day as well.

From lifestyle to sustainability - the trade fair platform for progressive bathroom design.

Today a trade fair means taking a stand.

The ISH provides the sector with an international forum for positioning itself on current socially relevant developments.

Due to the great diversity of the industrial sectors and trades that it covers, the world-leading ISH trade fair cannot restrict itself to a single theme such as sustainability. 

However, the very breadth of its scope represents a great opportunity to formulate common interests and pursue goals where these areas intersect. 

To this end, the trade show provides direction, incorporates trends and encourages discourse on certain themes.

The ISH is one of the very few fairs where the different worlds of technology, the trades, wholesale, design, interior design and architecture meet on an equal footing and confront the growing challenges of technological and social change together. Never have these challenges and the risk of working at cross purposes been as great as in the last two years. That is why the sector urgently needs the international forum provided by the ISH in order to synchronise again through face-to-face contact and find joint solution strategies – all the more so because the German landscape of brand-name companies who are represented in The Bathroom Experience occupies a leading position within the global industry.


As a modern world-leading fair, the ISH has long been far more than “just” an international showcase; it is a driving force for the development of innovations. A forum that proposes structures and directions on the basis of which the sector can exchange views on the challenges it faces, discuss solutions and develop narratives that are taken up by companies, creatives and consumers all over the world. #ISH23
