Concurrent fringe events further regional growth in individual heating
ISH Shanghai & CIHE, Shanghai International Trade Fair for HVAC, held from September 25 to 27 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre, successfully concluded its 2013 edition, Messe Frankfurt announced.
Organised by Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai), Beijing B&D Tiger Exhibition and Shanghai Zhanye Exhibition, the show was reportedly designed to better educate end-users and industry professionals on the application of HVAC technology across the regional market.
With the second edition taking place concurrently with Shanghai Intelligent Building Technology and the Shanghai Building Water, Water Treatment Technology and Equipment Expo, the fair attracted 249 exhibitors from 15 countries and regions, and drew 10,183 visitors, the organisers claimed.
In addition, during the first two days, a series of fringe events, including seminars and classroom-style discussions were held, where attendees were offered programmes covering topics such as floor-heating installation, application of radiator heating and heat pump technology and building heating trends, the organisers revealed.
This year reportedly marked the introduction of the European Pavilion to the event, with a number of European HVAC brands, highlighting technologies currently available from the continent.
Commenting on the success of the show, Richard Li, General Manager of Messe Frankfurt in China, said: “The Shanghai edition to our ISH brand continues to achieve its mission: introducing and promoting the concept of individual heating and related HVAC technologies to East and Central China.”
Li Hongbo, General Manager, Beijing B&D Exhibition, added: “By organising the fair in addition to its concurrent fringe events, we have positioned ISH Shanghai & CIHE as the regional destination for all HVAC and building technology-related professionals to meet, share knowledge and implement new technologies to their upcoming projects.”
