ISH China & CIHE: the go-to trade fair for capturing lucrative opportunities in China’s HVAC industry

9 Mar 2022

One of the biggest focal points within the 14th Five-Year Plan is the general direction to a low-carbon economy. More specifically the "carbon peak" and "carbon neutral" policies which pose many opportunities as well as challenges to the country’s HVAC market. At the same time, to adhere to the government’s strict green initiatives, manufacturers have actively responded by developing energy efficient HVAC solutions which meet the stringent carbon emission regulations. Consequently green and intelligent HVAC technologies continue to be key development focuses for manufacturers.

Scheduled to take place from 9 – 11 May 2022 at the New China International Exhibition Center in Beijing. The 2022 edition of ISH China & CIHE – China’s leading international trade fair for Heating, Ventilation, Air-Conditioning, Sanitation & Home Comfort Systems, organised by Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai) Co Ltd and CIEC GL events (Beijing) International Exhibition Co Ltd will focus on three primary themes: Energy, Water and Life, which are in line with China’s national development strategies. Covering the latest HVAC, plumbing, smart heating and home comfort technologies and products in the Chinese and wider Asian markets, the fair is expected to welcome over 1,300 exhibitors to showcase their latest innovations across eight halls spanning a total of 106,800 sqm.

Recognising the importance and future growth prospects in China led by the green initiatives highlighted within the latest national policies, exhibitors are ready to present their latest collection of innovative solutions and products to the international and domestic visitors.

ISH China & CIHE’s specialised display areas, zones and pavilions to be a major show highlight
For the past couple of years, the fair’s thematic zones have become the key component to its success. Apart from the returning German Pavilion, Overseas Area, Water Pump Zone, Floor Heating and Cooling System Area and Clean Energy District Heating Area, the fair will feature the new Minibox Service Area located in the Overseas Area. It is a business matching platform at ISH China & CIHE to bridge domestic suppliers with overseas buyers who cannot physically attend the fair. Running from 9 – 11 May, the Minibox Service Area serves as a marketing tool for local suppliers to promote their latest innovations and technologies abroad.

With modern water pumps offering higher efficiency and a lower carbon footprint, they serve as the heart of HVAC systems and are regarded as one of the most vital components for heating and cooling. To date, the Water Pump Zone has confirmed a number of exhibitors and some of the leading brands include: DAB, Dooch, Good Pump, Grundfos, HOMA, LEO, Minamoto, Morgan, Nanyuan, Pentax, SFA, Topsflo, Westone, Wilo, Xilin, and others.

Similar to last year, various product categories will be arranged into different halls to make it more convenient for participants to navigate the fair. The fair’s Energy theme will be highlighted throughout the entire exhibition centre and will feature various heat generation, floor heating, heat distribution, smart heating, industrial heating and air-conditioning solutions. Water themed exhibitors, showcasing pumps, pipings and fittings, valves, control systems and tools will be housed in halls W1 and W2. Lastly, Life themed exhibitors will converge in hall E4, showcasing the latest comfort systems which include fresh air, air purification, water purification, cooling and heating systems, intelligent household solutions and more.

ISH China & CIHE will take place from 9 – 11 May 2022, once again at the New China International Exhibition Center in Beijing. A further ISH event in China, ISH Shanghai & CIHE, will be held in Autumn of 2022 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre.
