Thank you to all who supported CHI's Ninth Annual Discovery on Target event!

Over 500 participants gathered at the historic Park Plaza Hotel & Towers in Boston, Massachusetts CHI's Discovery on Target event. From attendees, to exhibitors, speakers, and sponsors this year's conference was another great success for all involved.

Delegates enjoyed being able to create their own agenda by moving between the tracks and choosing the sessions that best fit their learning and networking needs.

The Exhibit Hall functions offered ample networking opportunities, and the perfect venue to launch new product and services.

Plan to join us again next year October 1-3, 2012 in Boston!

If you would like to share your feedback, or give input for next year's event please contact, Margit Eder at
