HOTEL SCAM ALERT: It has come to our attention that our conference attendees, specifically exhibitors, are being targeted in a housing scam. If you are contacted by ANY company other than CHI, or one claiming to be the official “housing service” please do not do business with them. Cambridge Healthtech Institute does not utilize any third party booking service. Many of these companies ask for advance payment, and should you contract with them, you may be unable to confirm, make changes or even receive a refund, should the need arise, and reservations are often canceled without advance notice.

Boston Skyline
 

VISITING BOSTON - Boston was recently named America’s Favorite City by readers of Travel and Leisure Magazine and boasts a wealth of historic landmarks in a dynamic cultural setting.  The Freedom Trail, Old North Church, Paul Revere's House, and Faneuil Hall Marketplace are just a few examples of this city's rich and varied history. After a full day of presentations and networking, you can saunter out from the hotel and visit nearby Boston attractions, including the famed "North End" for a fabulous Italian meal, the New England Aquarium, the lively Faneuil Hall, historic sites, and much more. For information on sightseeing activities and organized tours of Boston and the New England area, please contact the Boston Convention and Visitors Bureau at 1-888-SEE-BOSTON or visit www.bostonusa.com
