Here are some highlights at this year's show ...

The Bathroom Experience

This portion of ISH Frankfurt centers on the modern bathroom, which is not just a functional place, but an area of the home concerned with wellness, style and atmosphere. That turns it into a world of experience, a room where relaxing becomes a positive pleasure.

From cool elegance to exotic atmospheres - because of the consumer’s increasing demand for comfort and convenience, water has come to have an increasingly emotional appeal. ISH 2007 affords you the distinct advantage of finding out about new products, forms and functions earlier so that you have the expertise to advise your customers (Halls 1, 3, 4 and the Forum).

Building & Energy Technology

Building services and energy technology will focus on the sensible integration of renewable energies with “smart” technology. State-of-the-art technology now involves a combination of high-efficiency heat producers, such as gas and oil technologies, with renewable energies.

With greater use of such systems, energy savings of up to 40% can be achieved. A “smart” mix of fossil fuels and renewable energy sources offers sustainable solutions to the problems of energy supply, both today and in the future. At ISH, you will get a comprehensive overview of all these high-efficiency systems and modern technologies (Halls 8.0, 9.0, 9.1 and 9.2).

Aircontec: Air-Conditioning & Ventilation Technology

In a unique collaborative venture with ISH, the IKK Building Forum and Fireprotec will appear along with Aircontec. Approximately 300 exhibitors from the air-conditioning, refrigeration and ventilation sector will offer a comprehensive overview of these technologies.

The Air-Conditioning Forum: In the air-conditioning forum (Hall 5.1), you will find four special exhibitions with an emphasis on 1) the combination of architectural and aesthetically appealing air-conditioning components for interior applications with innovative central air-conditioning systems; 2) modern system technologies for the professional maintenance and cleaning of air-conditioning and ventilation systems; 3) energy-saving ventilation systems; and 4) the market for room air-conditioning units.

IKK Building Forum: Aircontec will be expanded by a forum with a special area reserved for building-related refrigeration and air-conditioning technology (Hall 6.2). In this connection, the IKK Building Forum focuses on a holistic approach to the energy consumption of a building. This is where exhibitors and refrigeration and air-conditioning companies present their products and services for planners, engineers, architects, building and property companies, plant construction firms involved with large-scale projects and the installation trade.

International Fireprotec Symposium: To be held in association with ISH for the first time, Fireprotec 2007 (Hall 6.2) presents innovative products and services in the field of preventive fire protection. Visitors have the chance to look for solutions to their problems in personal discussions with exhibitors and to exchange information about topics of current interest to the sector in a discussion forum.
