About the ISH Fair in Frankfurt

The fair features a broad range of sub-events whose topics of discussion are determined by top themes.

Affected by the themes are the exhibition, Air Conditioning Forum, ISH Building, Fire & Stove Forum and Technology and Energy Forum. The Fire & Stove Forum features as part of its structure the Ofenflamme Design Prize, also influenced by the themes. Other sub-events that showcase the prime thematics are the Pop up my Bathroom Magazine, the [email protected] Area with its Talks, Start-up pitches and Speed Dating sessions.
