More than 500 exhibitors were featured at the second ISH North America, which was held in the new Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, 2003. A vast array of companies exhibiting plumbing, heating, cooling and piping products visited with the more than 700 wholesaler executives on hand, as well as the thousands of contractors, engineers and other specifiers who attended.

ISH North America is a partnership between the show producers, Messe Frankfurt, and its association partners, including: ASA, the PHCC National Association, the Canadian Institute of Plumbing & Heating and the Radiant Panel Association. Next year's ISH North America will take place in the brand-new Boston Convention Center, October 14-16, 2004.

ASA and its ISH North America partners are steadfastly pursuing an agenda of show consolidation, and we continue to leave the door open for discussions with sponsors of other events in our industry. The vision of ISH North America is to create a world-class event on this continent that is the one recognized showcase for plumbing, heating, cooling, pipe and industrial PVF products.
