The world trade fair for HVAC + Water has announced a brand new concept and a new focus on visitors with eight solution fields said to be tailored exactly to participants’ interests. ISH 2025 will take place in Frankfurt from 17 to 21 March 2025.

Climate change is at the top of the agenda and at the heart of the sanitation, heating and ventilation industry, as it offers a mirror image of the market situation.

Against this background, exhibitors Messe Frankfurt and its partners have created a new, modern and future-oriented approach, which puts the focus of the fair more sharply than ever before on visitors and their needs.

Eight solution fields point the way

From bathroom designers, via specialists for heating and air-conditioning technology to experts for renewable energies and building-services control systems, the spectrum of visitors to ISH in Frankfurt is no less diverse than the spectrum covered by the industry. Under the motto, ‘Solutions for a sustainable future’, ISH 2025 will offer all participants a new, transparent and modern event structure. The centrepiece of the new concept comprises eight solution fields:

–       Bathrooms

–       Water-bearing systems

–       Installation

–       Heat generation

–       Indoor air

–       Intelligent building management

–       Software

–       Sanitary & HVAC products

“In principle, the event is undergoing a kind of metamorphosis from a straightforward product exhibition to a solution-oriented application show. To this end, the new solution fields will ensure improved orientation and exact matching between the demand and supply sides. This is the basis, the foundation for a modern and powerful international meeting place”, explains Stefan Seitz, director ISH Brand Management.

The new Hall 5, which was opened in 2023, is the key to the new ISH structure in 2025. Accordingly, the new concept will also be reflected by the layout of the fair in the individual exhibition halls.

Seitz adds, “In the future, content and knowledge transfer will take place in close thematic proximity to the relevant exhibitors, thus creating a stronger link between the presentations of innovative solutions with best-practice examples and information about developments in the market. After all, both are directly connected, and an advantage in terms of specialist knowledge is of indispensable added value for all visitors.” Accordingly, the themes will be determined at an even earlier stage, and also take account of the interests of international visitors.
