BEIJING — ISH China & CIHE ( China International Trade Fair for Heating, Ventilation, Air-Conditioning, Sanitation & Home Comfort Systems) concluded its three-day run on May 14, 2021, after welcoming 69,243 visitors and 980 exhibitors, and covering 95,000 square meters.
“We are excited to be back to facilitating business interactions for the HVAC industry, particularly within the Greater China region,” said Richard Li, general manager of Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai) Co. Ltd. “This year, the fair successfully aligned itself with the development of China’s digital and smart markets, driven by the national government’s new 14th Five Year Plan which highlighted green initiatives and infrastructure goals. These targets not only improve the national business environment, but also expedite more HVAC-related projects, putting emphasis on diversifying renewable energy production and consumption, and offer greater opportunities for HVAC suppliers worldwide.”
“We have been participating in ISH China & CIHE for many years, and it has been a great platform for not only promoting our brand but also launching new products as well as technologies,” said Hu Yincong, general manager, Jürgen Schlösser Armaturen GmbH Representative Office of China. “We are very pleased to report the visitor flow has exceeded our expectations. The fair has always been a great networking platform to meet our target buyers, to exchange technology and development trends, and most importantly gain market feedback to understand buyers’ needs. As the world is recovering from the healthcare crisis, IoT and digitization targets highlighted in the latest Five Year Plan will without a doubt aid the growth of our business and drive our product development to new heights.”
“I work in the property development industry and this is my first time attending the fair,” said Tenny Xu, company representative, NiceFlame Technology (Shanghai) Co. Ltd. “I was delighted to see a good selection of HVAC manufacturers, both domestic and international, gathered under one roof. I have noticed both the heat exchange and wall hung boiler industries have changed a lot, mainly in appearance, size, and efficiency, and they now have great cost performance ratios. Moreover, China’s environmental standards and carbon emissions policies are not only a global responsibility, but move the industry forward. I am very pleased with the fair as there are many different products and brands on display and I will return again next year.”
The trade fair co-organizers’ top priority remained the health and safety of fair attendees, hence added measures were practiced at the fairs. These included real-name authentication during registration, on-site temperature checks, frequent sanitization of fairground facilities, and distancing measures for forum/seminar audiences, amongst others.
The next ISH China & CIHE will take place from May 9-11, 2022, once again at the New China International Exhibition Center in Beijing. A further ISH event in China, ISH Shanghai & CIHE, will be held on August 31 – September 2, 2021, at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre.
