Atlanta-The ISH North American Partners announced format changes for its trade show and conference. A biennial schedule and combined industry conference are two components of the revised format. These changes were made to provide convenience for exhibitors and attendees. Through attendee feedback from 2003's show, held in Las Vegas, the Partners group decided to move the annual show to a biennial show cycle. More than 60 percent of the exhibitors preferred an every-other year event. The revised schedule will begin after next year's show at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. The following ISH-NA will be in 2006. During odd-numbered years, ISH-NA will host a combined industry conference. This event includes the annual meetings and conventions of the participating Partners and a program of educational, business and social events.
