BEIJING — ISH China and CIHE, the China International Trade Fair for Sanitation, Heating, Ventilation, and Air-Conditioning, announced a change in date for its 2012 show. The show will now be held April 4-6 at Beijing’s New China International Exhibition Center. The show was previously scheduled to occur April 2-4.

“The Chinese government has just decreed that the national Tomb Sweeping public holiday will be extended to April 2 through 4, which was our original show date,” said Richard Li, deputy general manager of Messe Frankfurt in China. “To accommodate these new and additional public holidays, we have changed our show dates to April 4 through 6. With this change, the new dates will be more convenient for exhibitors and visitors, and we will ensure that our various services, publicity, and promotion work will support both exhibitor and visitor objectives.” More than 700 exhibitors have already signed up for ISH China & CIHE, with 40 percent of exhibitors having bigger booths at the 2012 show than they had at the 2011 show.

“Approximately 90 percent of the total 70,000-square-meter exhibition area has already been sold,” Li said. “Our 2012 exhibitors include leading industry names such as A.O. Smith, BDR Therma, Bosch, Devotion, Grohe, Huida, Immergas, Joyou, Kohler, Marley and Weil-McLain, Micoe, Riello Group, TECE, Vaillant, Vanward, and Zehnder.” For more information, visit
