According to Messe Frankfurt, the ISH North America expo floor space total now has nearly 300 confirmed exhibitors, including manufacturers of kitchen and bath, plumbing, piping, HVAC, energy management and related products. ISH-NA is becoming the anchor for a variety of industry-related events.

In addition to the events listed below, the show producers and sponsors are in discussions with several other associations and industry groups on additional programs.
