The ISH North America partners - Messe Frankfurt, Inc., the American Supply Association, the Canadian Institute of Plumbing and Heating, the Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors - National Association, and the Radiant Panel Association - have voted to officially move the show from every year to every other year, taking place on the even years only. This year's show in Boston will still be held Oct. 14-16, but the next ISH North America show will take place in Chicago in the fall of 2006.

On the off (odd) years, the partnering associations will hold their annual conventions at the same location and jointly produce an educational program along with Messe Frankfurt. There also will be a limited tabletop booth exhibition.

In other news, Jennifer Jones has replaced Neil Stalker as show manager at Messe Frankfurt.
