SHANGHAI — The 2013 Shanghai International Trade Fair for HVAC drew more than 10,000 visitors to the Shanghai New International Expo Centre recently, an increase of more than 22 percent from 2012.

The trade fair drew nearly 250 exhibitors (up 52 percent from 2012) and visitors came from 15 countries and regions.

“What this show has shown this year is that the market demand for HVAC technology in East and Central China is very strong,” said Li Hongbo, general manager, Beijing B&D Exhibition Co. Ltd. “By organizing 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.”

During the first two days of ISH Shanghai & CIHE, a series of engaging fringe events, which included seminars and classroom-style discussions, were held to raise professional knowledge on individual heating technology. Attendees to the fair were offered seven programs with dozens of sessions, covering topics such as floor-heating installation, the application of radiator heating and heat pump technology, building heating trends, and much more. Speakers provided key insight from their expert knowledge on HVAC technology, and attendees were collectively impressed by the information and industry contacts they were able to obtain. Next year’s show is scheduled for Sept. 3-5.
