ATLANTA - ISH North America (ISH-NA) will hold its third North American trade show Oct. 15-16 in Boston at the new Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. The show, which incorporates products and services from the kitchen and bath, plumbing, PVF, and heating and air conditioning industries, will offer a number of training opportunities.

A seven-track seminar program will address the increased demand for more detailed sessions within selected industry segments.

The scheduled seminar tracks include: business management/marketing, environmental systems, hydronics, HVAC, kitchen and bath, plumbing, and radiant heat.

According to show organizers, radiant heating is the newest track and is an outgrowth of the popularity of the hydronics section. The Radiant Panel Association's (RPA's) addition to the official partner lineup last year was another factor that allowed for the development of this track.

The organization also announced that the ISH-NA show will be held on an every-other-year cycle beginning with the upcoming 2004 show in Boston. The next event after Boston will be held in 2006.

During the odd-numbered years, ISH-NA partners, the Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors - National Association (PHCC) and the America Supply Association (ASA), will have a combined educational event that is in the process of being developed and is scheduled to include the annual meetings and conventions of the participating partners and a program of educational, business, and social events.
