Respiratory Sessions at AIHce 2009

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.)

The meeting will include a Green Pavilion -- a special area of the trade show floor where exhibitors who manufacture or provide an environmentally friendly product or service can exhibit, with a special display for attendees, "An Interactive Green Building Display: From Blueprint to Footprint."

The expo takes place in Halls D and E of the Metro Toronto Convention Centre's South Building. Expo hours are Monday, June 1, 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.; Tuesday, June 2, 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.; and Wednesday, June 3, 9:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m
