ISH moving forward with plans for March 2021 event in Frankfurt

If the stars align, ISH is going to happen March 22 to 26 in 2021, according to Wolfgang Marzin, president and CEO of Messe Frankfurt, where the event will take place. Should all go as planned, it will be the first worldwide sanitary and HVAC event since the coronavirus outbreak.

In a recent interview, Marzin said that ISH will be especially important in light of other event cancellations in the sanitary ad HVAC market, because “there is major uncertainty about how the safety and hygiene regulations can be put into practice.”

Marzin anticipates that the show will potentially draw about 170,000 visitors, noting that currently the hygiene and safety plan is to require social distancing of 1.5 metres, along with an active visitor-management system to control visitor streams, and elevated hygiene measures. The ventilation system will also supply 100% fresh air to the venue halls.
