To All 2010 CDI AGM and Trade Show Participants

The 2010 AGM and Trade Show were very successful. The venue was at the Marriott Hotel in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The seminars were well attended, as well as the exhibits. The show was very educational both due to the products displayed and the seminars.

The Tall Ship Party cruise in the harbour at night was also very unique. The views of the harbour were as picturesque at night as they were in the day.
