ISH Frankfurt took place in early March and showcased advances in sustainable production with the latest design and product innovations to aid management of water and energy in buildings. With emissions at the forefront of the global agenda, the need to achieve climate targets is more relevant than ever before. ISH presented innumerable solutions and saw a vast array of brands and future-orientated products.
“ISH has once again demonstrated that it connects all international players from the sector. Only together is it possible to achieve the climate targets – naturally in a personal dialogue here at ISH.” said Wolfgang Marzin, President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Messe Frankfurt.
The event hosted over 2,500 exhibitors, within this setting, the bathroom sector presented a range of products that are not only design-led and aesthetically pleasing, but also energy-efficient and resource-friendly.
