ISH Shanghai & CIHE HVAC Show Gains Support in Shanghai
Already a mainstay in Beijing, Messe Frankfurt’s ISH Shanghai & CIHE – Shanghai International Trade Fair for Heating, Ventilation and Air-Conditioningis gaining support in the Shanghai region in advance of its September show.
The event will run Sept. 26-28 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre and is co-organized organized by Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai) Co Ltd and Beijing B&D Tiger Exhibition Co Ltd.
The show will cover an area of 11,500 square meters and is expected to attract more than 200 exhibitors and 8,000 visitors from around the world.
“As Central and Eastern China presents us with unique opportunities, ISH Shanghai & CIHE will not simply be a copy of our Beijing show,” said Richard Li, deputy general manager for Messe Frankfurt in China.
He added, “The fair is targeted at the growing residential market in the two regions, as both areas boast consumers with strong purchasing power, who are looking for better comfort and energy efficiency in their HVAC products. We believe the fair will greatly help HVAC exhibitors build their brand image and find new customers across both regions.”
In China, the Central Government’s current energy policy calls for the reduction of energy use by 65 percent.
Since HVAC systems account for a substantial amount of energy consumption in buildings, heating solutions such as GSHP (ground source heat pumps) and ASHP (air source heat pumps), as well as floor-heating systems have grown in popularity.
To further showcase the latest trends in these alternative HVAC solutions, ISH Shanghai & CIHE will run concurrently with the International Heat Pump Development Forum themed “Driving into Green Sustainable Development Way”, which will introduce current government policies, investment opportunities and the latest innovations in heat pump technology.
Both the HVAC show and the concurrent forum compliment each other by gathering leaders and experts from governments, associations and enterprises to offer green technology solutions to the growing market in China.
“As the sister show to ISH China & CIHE in Beijing, ISH Shanghai & CIHE has received strong support from the industry. Booth reservation as well as the backing of industry associations has been positive,” said Li Hongbo, general manager of Beijing B&D Tiger Exhibition Co Ltd.
He added, “The Shanghai show is quickly becoming the prime industry destination for the two regions.”
ISH Shanghai & CIHE is part of Messe Frankfurt’s architecture and technology fairs, headed by the biennial ISH event in Frankfurt scheduled March 12-16.
