26 Mar ISH 2015
ISH has been running for 50 years now and is the leading trade fair for the bathroom, building, energy, renewable energy and air-conditioning sectors. It’s the place to go to see what’s going on in bathroom design, bringing together a range of exciting and cutting edge exhibitors.
With forums and lectures on each day of the show (which ran from 10-13 March this year) and special features on Water and Energy, there was something for everyone. Olympic and endurance athletes hosted the VIP customer day and there were launches and world-firsts throughout the show, from air and dirt separators to condensing boilers, from bathrooms to wet rooms to renewable energy systems.
Stands from five continents were highlighting trends, looking in particular at efficiency in the use of water and accounting for different individual needs rather than one-size-fits-all. At this years show there was an emphasis on comfort and technology working together, which is something we already consider when looking at retail display design that links in with these themes.
If you wanted to see how the bathroom market is changing and how it’s relationship with installers and end users is evolving, this trade show is hard to beat.
