Organizers say this year’s ISH Shanghai and CIHE combined trade shows brought some of the largest crowds to an Asian HVAC market event in recent years.

The Sept. 5-7 HVAC construction and plumbing trade show at Shanghai New International Expo Center attracted 17,965 from east and central China, officials said.

“ISH Shanghai and CIHE is one of the most important events for east and central China’s HVAC market, and the strong business results for exhibitors and buyers this edition once again validates that,” said Lucia Wong, deputy general manager at Messe Frankfurt in Shanghai. “The amount of new business and industry feedback that was generated at the show, as expressed by many exhibitors, was the most pleasing aspect for us.”
