9 May 2024

ISH China & CIHE, the China International Exhibition for Heating, Ventilation, Air-Conditioning, Sanitation & Home Comfort System, will take place from 11 – 13 May 2024 at the China International Exhibition Center (Shunyi Hall) in Beijing. Recognised as a leading HVAC event, the exhibition will introduce the latest developments in HVAC products and technologies, enabling participants to leverage the opportunities presented by China’s clean energy policies. This year, ISH China & CIHE aims to enhance its international influence, reintroducing its celebrated overseas pavilions and strengthening its position as a key annual fixture in Asia’s HVAC sector.

In alignment with China’s national clean energy policy, the event will be structured around three sustainability-driven themes: “Energy”, exploring renewable-energy heating solutions, “Water”, including pumps, valves and accessories, and “Life”, dedicated to smart home products and solutions. Product categories will be arranged according to these themes, encompassing HVAC systems, heat pumps, air conditioning, building technology, plumbing, smart heating, home comfort systems and more.

Jointly organised by Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai) Co Ltd and CIEC GL events (Beijing) International Exhibition Co Ltd, the fair’s 2024 edition will welcome 1,100 domestic and international companies to Beijing. These participants will showcase a wide selection of HVAC products and technologies across 106,000 sqm of exhibition space, providing a collaborative environment for the exploration of new opportunities, industry trends and the promotion of sustainable development within the industry.
