Building Technologies

Building Technologies

Digitisation, networking, safety and security are some of the most pressing issues of our time. Messe Frankfurt has 25 events in Europe, Asia and South America that address these themes and offer key solutions. They provide innovative interaction platforms for efficient building management, intelligent networking, security of supply, design and sustainable usage of scarce resources, namely energy and water. The two international flagship events Light + Building and ISH are of particular interest here.
