Multiple shows in China postponed due to Covid-19 concerns

In view of current pandemic circumstances in China, ISH China & CIHE, ISH Shanghai & CIHE, and Formnext + PM South China, have been postponed.

ISH China & CIHE will now take place from 11 – 13 May 2023 at the New China International Exhibition Center in Beijing. ISH Shanghai & CIHE will be deferred until autumn 2023 at the Shanghai New International Expo Center, however, the exact date of the event has not been announced.

The two shows cover the HVAC sector in Asia, including products and technologies, intelligent control, home comfort, and plumbing.

Richard Li, managing director of Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai) Co Ltd, said: “With the evolving situation, we have decided to hold the fairs at later dates. Given the global profile of our exhibitors, the decision was made to ensure the welfare of all participants and to limit the risk of disease transmission.”

Hongbo Li, deputy general manager of CIEC GL events (Beijing) International Exhibition Co Ltd, added: “Due to present circumstances, we all believe it is best to delay the fairs to provide as much certainty to the event’s participants as possible.”
