The European Union of Hearing Aid Acousticians (EUHA) announced that preparations for the 66th Annual International Congress of Hearing Aid Acousticians and the accompanying International Industry Exhibition scheduled to be held in Hanover, Germany, from October 12-14, are in full swing. According to EUHA, demand from exhibitors is high: they say more than 80 companies have already registered, including numerous new exhibitors.
Companies from the industry may still book exhibition space at the EUHA International Congress by accessing EUHA’s portal at: www.ausstellung-euha.org/en/ before June 17. Since the initial planning for the hall layout in the exhibition center of Deutsche Messe Hannover is almost complete, interested companies should submit their requests for exhibition space as soon as possible, according to EUHA.
Dr Stefan Zimmer, Chairman of the Board of the German Hearing Instruments Industry Association (BVHI), said: “We are delighted that so many companies have already confirmed their participation in the 2022 EUHA Industrial Exhibition. This reflects the generally positive development in our industry. The Congress looks set to become a highly attractive event in October this year.”
The program of specialist lectures featuring renowned speakers from Germany and abroad is currently being put together and the EUHA Ticket Shop is being prepared. Beate Gromke, President of the European Union of Hearing Aid Acousticians (EUHA eV) said, “You should include October 12-14, 2022 in your annual planning now, and join us in Hanover. Nothing is more inspiring than meeting in person. The Congress is an ideal place for networking.”
