“Save the date for Future Friday!” The 64th International Congress of Hearing Aid Acousticians announced a new highlight to this year’s conference: “Future Friday”—a day exclusively dedicated to forward-looking topics focusing on hearing aid technology. The European Union of Hearing Aid Acousticians (EUHA) and the German Hearing Aid Industry Association (BVHI) will be presenting free information on innovative issues, trends, and future developments. Trade fair visitors and conference delegates will have a chance to participate in these events on Friday, October 18, 2019, running at the same time as the Congress lecture program.
A number of exhibitors will be offering fast-track presentations at their stands in the trade exhibition during the morning, featuring, for example, subjects such as energy cell technology, eAudiology, bone-conduction hearing systems, or modern sensor technology.
Exhibitors will be also offer information on topics such as “Strong and loyal customer relations: A factor of success for the future, too?,” “The gateway to health, wellness, & information,” or a “Brain-controlled hearing aid.”
As soon as the trade exhibition closes on Future Friday at 2 pm, the focus will be on the presentations and workshops offered free of charge by the hearing aid industry. These events will be running concomitantly with the regular conference program, according to EUHA’s announcement. The forward-looking presentations will cover innovations, sketch visions, and introduce new issues such as artificial intelligence, bimodal hearing solutions, or remote fine-tuning.
Beate Gromke, EUHA president, said, “Future Friday will be offering hearing aid acousticians, journeymen, master craftspeople, and apprentices alike, a chance to keep up to speed and to get ready for the future!”
Dr Stefan Zimmer, BVHI chairman of the board, said, “Anyone attending this year’s EUHA Congress or the trade exhibition and keen on getting information on hearing aid technology and forward-looking issues and trends, should go on Future Friday.”
