Registrations for ISH North America 2006 now open; trade show will present comprehensive seminar program with six professional seminar tracks.

The fourth edition of ISH North America 2006 is set to take place in Chicago's McCormick Place, Sept. 28-30. It will be host to an international trade show for K&B, plumbing, commercial/industrial PVF, heating and air-conditioning manufacturers, as well as a comprehensive yet practical educational program to address contemporary topics.

ISH NA producer Messe Frankfurt says this year's seminar schedule, created by the industry for the industry, promises to be one of the most important business development opportunities of the year. In order to open up more discussion time for each subject, the seminars have been extended to 90 minutes. To decrease overlap of seminar times, five time slots will be available over a three-day period.

Seminar tracks this year include business management, code, environmental, HVAC, plumbing, and radiant and hydronic heating. Seminar and show registration is now open and available online.

ISH North America is held in conjunction with the annual conventions of IAPMO, American Supply Association, the Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors - National Association, and the Radiant Panel Association. Likewise, the Canadian Institute of Plumbing & Heating will play host to its members at a Maple Leaf Reception. Some of these associations' events are listed on the following news pages.
