Downtown Toronto image (Tourism Toronto)AIHce 2009 online registration opened last month, and anticipation is growing for the largest IH-related professional conference and trade show of the year. It will take place in downtown Toronto, Canada -- a relaxed and eclectic city that has a vibrant downtown/lakefront area. (The accompanying photo comes from Tourism Toronto.)
