The organisers of ISH Shanghai & CIHE have confirmed that the next edition of the fair will now take place 9–11 May 2022 at the New China International Exhibition Center in Beijing, instead of the scheduled 31 August–2 September 2021. This is due to the recent emergence of Covid-19 cases in China and uncertainty around participants being able to travel to Shanghai this month.
Richard Li, general manager of Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai) Co Ltd, commented: “After discussions with our stakeholders, and taking the government’s guidelines for pandemic containment into account, we have decided to defer the 2021 edition of ISH Shanghai & CIHE to provide as much certainty to the fair’s participants as possible.”
Hongbo Li, deputy general manager of CIEC GL events (Beijing) International Exhibition Co Ltd, added: “The local industry has been very supportive of the fair over the years, but delaying this year’s edition will ensure a broader range of exhibitors and visitors from around the country can attend. And as we look forward to the next edition, we hope that more industry experts will be able to participate alongside our exhibitors by utilising the ISH platform in China.”
ISH China & CIHE in Beijing and ISH Shanghai & CIHE cover HVAC products and technologies, intelligent control, home comfort and plumbing. ISH China & CIHE aims to serve as a comprehensive commercial HVAC solutions sourcing platform for China’s northern regions, while ISH Shanghai & CIHE aims to help industry players tap into China’s East and Central HVAC and home comfort markets.
The two fairs are headed by the biennial ISH event in Frankfurt, Germany, a global trade fair for HVAC + Water. This event will take place 13–17 March 2023.
