The Elite Hearing Network, Plymouth, Minn, which reports to be the largest network of independent hearing care providers in the United States, will convene its 3-day Annual Business Summit on the Big Island of Hawaii, February 5-9, 2014, at the Hilton Waikoloa Village.

The conference offers Elite’s members the opportunity to engage with the latest technology in the hearing industry, obtain required continuing education hours, as well as learn from the country’s leading hearing care professionals and hospital associations about the latest and best practices to improve patient and hearing healthcare. New this year, Elite Hearing Network will have special educational tracks for hearing care centers’ front office staffs and providers. Approximately 1,000 hearing care professionals from more than 250 practices across the country are expected to attend.

“As one of the hearing health industry’s largest professional conferences, attendees are given unparalleled opportunities to learn from prominent industry leaders and keynote speakers who cover a variety of business and industry topics like marketing your practice, financial and business management, coaching, and leading staff to learning the latest hearing aid technology from many manufacturers,” said Amplifon USA President and CEO Heinz Ruch in a press statement.  “The Summit also provides a vital networking environment with peers from across the country. Our members place great value on the chance to share knowledge and learn from other providers.”

At every Summit, Elite hosts a Fundraising Event during the conference to raise resources for a chosen organization. This year, Elite and its members will be supporting the Hawaii National Guard State Family Program, which aids families directly affected by a spousal deployment in the armed forces. Families are extended support through financial, emotional, and physical assistance when in need.
