A New Product Showcase and Europe’s Design Plus Awards Featured at ISH North America, Toronto, Canada, October 31 – November 2, 2002


The Canadian economy turned in what economists termed a “breathtaking and spectacular performance” in August. This is the backdrop for the first annual ISH North America, the international trade show for the kitchen and bath, plumbing, piping, heating, hydronics and air conditioning industry. More than 18,000 visitors from 20 countries will be in Toronto next month for ISH North America.

A highlight of the show will be an exhibit of selected “Design Plus” award winners from Europe. Messe Frankfurt (organizers of ISH North America) and Hanover’s if Industrie Forum Design honored a variety of new products at the most recent ISH show in Frankfurt, Germany. Awards were presented in the sanitation, heating, installation technology and measuring, testing, control and regulation technology product categories. The Design Plus label is awarded for particularly innovative design ideas and products that break new ground in terms of form and functionality. Design Plus products showcased at ISH North America are the “cream of the crop” and have been recognized as some of the leading new products in today’s marketplace.

Alongside the Design Plus awards exhibit on the show floor will be a New Product Showcase featuring the latest and most creative new products launched in North America in the past year. For industry visitors, the main reason for attending any trade event is to see new products. They won’t be disappointed at ISH North America. A number of exhibiting companies have announced that they will use ISH North America as a launch pad for their new products, including Alsons Corporation, American Standard, Bradford White Corporation, Camus Hydronics, Canplas Industries, Crown Boiler, DynaQuip Controls, E&E Elektronik, Glentronics, Grundfos Canada, Halsey Taylor, Heatlink, Jomar In-ternational, Liberty Pumps, Mansfield Plumbing, Midland Metal Manufacturing, Peerless Heater, Prelude Systems, Roberts-Gordon, San-Ei Faucet, Watts Industries, Wheeler-Rex and Whirlaway.

On the 300,000 square foot exhibit floor, more than 400 exhibitors will feature all that is new in the industry.
