ISH China & CIHE 2024 Concludes, Promoting Industry Transition Towards a Low-Carbon HVAC Future

ISH China & CIHE, the China International Exhibition for Heating, Ventilation, Air-Conditioning, Sanitation & Home Comfort System, concluded successfully on 13 May 2024. The event attracted 75,156 attendees over its three-day run, along with 1,100 exhibitors from 18 countries and regions who showcased the latest in low-carbon and environmentally friendly HVAC products and technologies. This year’s exhibition was marked by an expanded international presence of exhibitors and visitors, providing greater opportunities for cross-border business and cooperation. Meanwhile, the show’s acclaimed concurrent event programme returned to deliver insights into new HVAC technologies and cultivate discussions among industry professionals.

Jointly organised by Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai) Co Ltd and CIEC GL events (Beijing) International Exhibition Co Ltd, ISH China & CIHE 2024 was held from 11 – 13 May at the China International Exhibition Center (Shunyi Hall) in Beijing. With an overall area of 106,000 sqm across eight exhibition halls, the event welcomed a total of 75,156 professional visitors.

This year, the fair expanded on its core product themes of “Energy”, “Water” and “Life” with the return of its overseas and German areas, a Canadian pavilion, and the debut of a new Italian pavilion. These specialised zones enabled the exchange of HVAC solutions between international and domestic exhibitors, thereby enhancing business cooperation and facilitating entry into wider local and global markets. The event also highlighted recent developments in energy storage and energy-saving boiler technologies, targeting carbon emission and pollution reduction through the transformation of heating supply systems.

Alongside the main exhibition, the fair’s fringe programme provided a venue for global industry experts and scholars to discuss carbon emissions reduction and sustainable development in the HVAC sector. Notably, this line-up included the China International HVAC Congress (iHVAC), which examined the latest energy development trends in the industry, with a particular emphasis on zero-carbon heating solutions.

Overall, the fair was met with positive feedback from participants, with many expressing a strong desire to return for next year’s edition.
