10th International trade fair for industrial insulation materials and technologies 

As the leading trade fair for insulation material and insulation technology, the IEX –Insulation Expo offers for both, exhibitors and professional visitors, a high- quality platform, where existing business relationships can be intensified and new business contacts can be acquired.

As an exhibitor at the IEX, you will meet the purchasers and key decision-makers from sectors such as plant construction and operation, insulation material trade, insulation companies and processors and technical building equipment planning, as well as architects, energy managers and facility managers.

As a professional visitor at the IEX, you will meet leading companies from the heat and cold insulation sector, as well as of the sound and fire protection sector.


The IEX was founded in 1998 by the Lamba Verlag. Many leading manufacturers and retailers of the insulation branch took the initiative to support the implementation of this exhibition. Since then, the IEX takes place in a two year rotation. The IEX is the leading meeting place of the sector for manufacturers, retailers, fabricators, planners for technical building equipment, plant manufacturers, engineers, energy commissioners and facility managers of the whole inuslation branch in Europe.

The previous location of the IEX was Wiesbaden (Rhein– Main Hallen). There, the exhibition was steadily increasing until it was postponed to Cologne due to problems with the capacity and the cumulative internationalization. Lutz Koophamel and his team created an international respected platform for the technical insulation branch with enormous personal commitment .

After 18 years with altogether 9 editions, the founder of the IEX gave the organization of the exhibition into the trustfully hands of the Reed Exhibitions Deutschland GmbH.

The project team of the IEX aims to build on the success of the previous years and to develop the exhibition through additional focuses. Therefore, the change of the name from ISO to IEX – Insulation Expo was an important and necessary step for the future.

On the one side, should the leading trade fair for technical insulation in Europe become more established outside of Germany, on the other side will the IEX become more innovative. The focus will be set on knowledge and further education. However, you will still meet manufacturers, retailers, colleagues and partners on the IEX!

Additional, new elements will be added to the exhibition: free workshops in the exhibition hall, a dialogue forum for fire protection, a Product Demonstration Area, Guided Tours and networking possibilities.

The change to IEX – Insulation Expo creates space for a new series of events abroad. The first event is the IEX – Insulation Expo USA  at the end of October 2015 in Rosemont, Chicago. Futher information can be found atInsulation Expo USA 2015.
