On September 22, local time in Germany, the Frankfurt HVAC and Sanitary Exhibition (ISH) issued the “Reflecting the industry: ISH 2021 to go digital” announcement. Due to the impact of Covid‑19, Frankfurt Messe will not be released from January to March 2021. Any physical trade fair will not be held in the Frankfurt Exhibition Center between the months.
Several days ago, the two largest exhibitors at the fair, Grohe and Hansgrohe, successively announced to withdraw from the exhibition, which had a huge impact. A the epidemic, Messe Frankfurt has organized 13 large-scale trade fairs across China. Unfortunately, it is currently impossible to hold such large-scale exhibition trade events in Germany.
According to data from the ISH official website, 46% of visitors and 66% of exhibitors are from outside Germany. ISH is the world’s leading trade exhibition, providing development directions for modern bathroom design, sustainable heating and air conditioning technology, and smart home systems, especially in the bathroom industry. Apart from the Shanghai Kitchen and Bathroom Exhibition, it is the largest bathroom industry exhibition.
