BIHIMA Conference 2018: The Future of Hearing Technology

Over the past year, BIHIMA has worked hard to promote key topics that aim to improve the lives of people with hearing difficulties. In collaboration with leading Institutes and Associations we have played a role in raising awareness of hearing loss and how people can access support. Further, the technology pioneered by our members is changing at a rapid pace and shifting the way the whole of society thinks about the ways we hear.  Our ambition is now to deliver an exceptional conference event this spring, which will bring together the many strands of this important work.

When? Friday 11 May – Saturday 12 May 2018

Where? Edgbaston Cricket Ground in Birmingham

This two-day event at the superb conference facilities at Egbaston has been designed for audiologists and all within the hearing and healthcare sector, and will focus on the ever increasing role of technology in improving the lives of people with hearing loss.

What to expect?

Cutting-edge technology insight

The event will be centred around a ‘sound experience’ exhibition hosted by the BIHIMA members, demonstrating the latest in innovative hearing technology. This is a chance to get up close to the technology and keep up with the fast-changing pace of recent advances.

Inspiring speaker programme

There will be a fantastic line up of speakers (to be unveiled shortly) who will provide insight into how future technology trends will impact the hearing sector, people with hearing loss, and wider society.

Educational workshops and CPD opportunity

An interactive workshop programme will be delivered in partnership with BSHAA who will be awarding CPD points for attendance. These collaborative workshops will also offer an opportunity for delegates to have a say in the future of the sector.

Evening entertainment

The conference offers a break away from the norm, including a relaxed and informal dinner with the chance to watch the day’s county cricket game conclude from an exclusive private box, and much more futuristic entertainment courtesy of our technology manufacturers.
