Hansgrohe Group Cancels Participation at ISH 2021

ISH 2021 Trade Fair
Schiltach, September 2020. After an intense analysis of the Corona situation, possible hygienic concepts, current trade fair experiences, and numerous international customer conversations, the Hansgrohe Group has decided not to participate in the ISH trade fair in Frankfurt next year.

"We made the decision absolutely not easy for ourselves", says Christophe Gourlan, Chief Sales Officer and Executive Board Member of Hansgrohe SE, "but the protection of the health of our customers and our employees is our top priority". At the present time, it is not possible to assess the spread of the virus and the Pandemic’s development internationally. "We regret this very much because a trade fair lives from real product experiences, and, also from personal conversations with our customers", says the Hansgrohe CSO, "however, this is not possible in the current situation".

The Hansgrohe Group will continue its participation at the important industry trade fairs in the future and hopes that the situation caused by Corona will soon return to normal. "Even though digitalization is becoming more and more important in our everyday lives, trade fairs remain an important part of our exchange with installers and the trade," says Christophe Gourlan.
