With a wide array of emerging bathroom trends, this edition of ISH could be one of the most important yet for getting a handle on future design directions…
ISH 2017 will once again bring all the major players of the international bathroom industry to Frankfurt for what is the sector’s biggest global exhibition. Over 2,400 exhibitors from across the bathroom, heating and plumbing arena will launch their latest products onto the world market at the show, which runs 14-18 March 2017. It is also expected to confirm its status as a truly international show – in 2015, 61% of exhibitors and 39% of visitors came from outside Germany.
The motto of ISH 2017 is ‘Water, Energy, Life.’ which organisers say shows clearly where the focus of the exhibition is and, in particular, where the keystones are located. With its broad 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 and, in 2017, will be held under the motto ‘Bathrooms for People’. Particular attention will be paid to different aspects such as design, health, wellness and comfort, as well as resource conservation and drinking-water hygiene. Exhibitors in this section will present environmentally-friendly design-orientated bathroom solutions revolving around not only the latest design developments but also sustainable technology meeting modern needs.
