HR Expo and the combined KBIS/IBS tradeshows are regarded as large gatherings in the PHCP-PVF industry.
The every-other-year ISH Germany show takes the word large to an entirely different level. ISH Germany put on its most recent gala in March in Frankfurt that drew a crowd of around 190,000 visitors from 161 countries to the Frankfurt Fair and Exhibition Centre. During the five-day show, 2,532 exhibitors (1,664 from abroad) from 57 countries presented their new products and innovations. Messe Frankfurt, the show’s producer, noted 66% of exhibitors and almost 48% of visitors came from outside Germany. Messe Frankfurt added 522 Boeing 747 airplanes would be needed to carry all 2019 ISH Germany visitors.
