TOTO LTD. (headquartered in Kitakyushu-shi, Fukuoka; President: Noriaki Kiyota) will be participating in International Sanitary and Heating 2023 (here in after "ISH"), one of the world's biggest international fairs for baths, toilets, buildings, indoor cooling, heating, air conditioning and renewable energy. ISH 2023 is scheduled to begin in Frankfurt, Germany on Monday, March 13.
ISH is held biennially and the upcoming ISH will be the eighth time that TOTO has participated, dating back to 2009. This year, ISH will be held offline for the first time in four years.
In the upcoming ISH, TOTO will exhibit at Forum, a single venue that draws attentionby being located in the gateway of Messe Frankfurt, the venue of fair. Forum has a large glass window through which natural sunlight pours. Fully utilizing the venue's features, TOTO’s booth will be designed to convey nature from within the building and have proposal spaces focused on different purposes.
Under the exhibition concept of "Life Anew*1", TOTO will offer a new and rich lifestyle around plumbing that only TOTO can realize under "TOTO CLEANOVATION*2", which has been refined since its foundation to realize cleanliness and comfort around the world.
Reflecting environmental consideration and the pursuit of comfort, this time, we will also provide TOTO products from ISH to the world.

Linking with the exhibition concepts “Sustainability”
The theme of this year's ISH is “Solutions for a sustainable future.” TOTO positions its unique products as “Sustainable products” that balance cleanliness, comfort, and the environment.

The exhibition’s highlight is the production of sunlight filtering through the trees and environment sounds. In addition, the exhibition that incorporates greenery evokes the idea of coexistence with the Global Environment, creating a space where visitors can relax and refresh themselves. It is a design that can only be done at Forum, which has a high ceiling with glass walls and an open atrium.The large monitors on either side of the store impress you with the rich and comfortable life that comes from using TOTO products, and you can feel the comfort of “Life Anew.”
