IFH/Intherm is the long-standing specialised trade fair dealing with sanitation, home and building technology, and HVAC. Messe Nuremberg has been the fair’s home since its inception in 1976.

For nearly half a century now, IFH/Intherm has operated as the most effective procurement platform in Germany. 

The exhibition space focuses on the following six product branches – energy management, house and building automation, air conditioning and ventilation, sanitation, heating, renewable energies. Exhibits, of course, cover additional branches of trade such as plumbing, pipes, pumps, measuring and control equipment, workshop facilities, tools and transporters.
