The ISH NA partners have voted to officially move the trade show for Kitchen & Bath, Plumbing, PVF, Heating and Air Conditioning from every year to every other year. This year's show in Boston will maintain the dates of Oct. 14-16, and the next show will take place in Chicago in the fall of 2006.
On the off years, three of the show's partner associations (RPA, ASA, PHCC) will hold their annual conventions at the same location and jointly produce an educational program with Messe Frankfurt. There also will be a limited tabletop booth opportunity for exhibitors.
In related news, Messe Frankfurt, Inc. announced the appointment of Jennifer Jones as trade fair manager for the ISH NA show. Bringing more than 18 years of trade show experience to ISH NA, Jones will work in cooperation with the sales and marketing teams of Messe Frankfurt, Inc. and the show partners, the American Supply Association (ASA), the Canadian Institute of Plumbing and Heating (CIPH), the Plumbing-Heating-Cooling-Contractors Association-National Association (PHCC) and the Radiant Panel Association (RPA), to strengthen the relationships with key exhibitors and attendees, as well as develop new relationships within the industries surrounding the show.
