In May 2013, the largest congregation of Environmental Health and Safety professionals in the world -- AIHce -- happened this year in Montreal. It rained a lot, but the city is so beautiful and vibrant that nobody minded. Bonjour, Canada!

If you've never been to AIHce in Montreal, or to either or both, here's a photo essay for you:
Coming into Montreal
Montreal skyline
Montreal is networked with underground malls; but art is everywhere, making it lively
Artistic license underground: pink tree trunks
AIHce 2013 conference was held in Viger (vigor?) Hall
Atop the escalator inside the iconic Montreal Convention Center
Conference attendee Kevin Fogarty from Saint Gobain is ready for session
Waiting for session on GHS
Jon Hellerstein of MeadWestvaco engages a packed house with his talk on GHS
Meanwhile... back at the hall of justice (er, exhibits)...
Longtime exhibitor (10 years+) Actio Software Corporation
View from the floor
Poster child: Samantha Connell shows off her big poster on small matter
CIH, MS, PhD candidate, Research Fellow: Michele Shepard's poster, nanoparticles
Outside, walking to Old Montreal, there's the famous St. James Hotel 
Gibby's is a must-visit: originally a massive complex of stables, now a great restaurant
Inside Gibby's, conference attendees like Chris Nowak lean back and relax after un bon jour of AIHce
The preceding photo essay is a decent day-in-the-life portrait of an AIHce conference.

See you next year at AIHce San Antonio. Your picture might even make the blog.... so look out for wayward women wielding cameras. Cheers, all, and thanks to everyone who agreed to be in pictures this year!
