What we know about ISH is that it’ll progress as planned from March 13th until March 17th. Organisers had to make the tough decision to ensure the safety of professionals and as a response to the travel bans surrounding the coronavirus pandemic. 


As the need to optimize, conserve and improve how we use nature’s resources, ISH offers a detailed look into how the heating, sanitation, bath and refrigeration sectors can improve on their overall efficiency.

The trade show touches upon a variety of topics such as renewable energies sector, energy efficient heating technologies and smart design. There will also be a variety of forums, where you can talk directly with leading experts. ISH is the abbreviation for International Sanitary and Heating and has been successfully running since 1960.

As of right now, ISH positions itself in a place as a leader in the HVAC industry and is a continuous source of innovations for solar energy systems, shower cubicles, cooling systems, fire protection and so much more.


ISH follows a biennial schedule, where editions fall on odd years. Each edition lasts for five days in total and runs during the month of March.
