BSHAA Congress

Congress 2019 logo


The BSHAA Congress will be held on Friday 21 and Saturday 22 June 2019 at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry.

The conference will have a brand new format for 2019.
FRIDAY will be an afternoon and early-evening session. Delegates can book one of three or four in-depth workshops to really get to grips with an audiology topic, hear the latest news and developments at the BSHAA AGM, preview the exhibition and enjoy an informal early-evening reception.
SATURDAY will feature the Congress exhibition, with technology, business and career hubs. See the latest ground-breaking technology all under one roof, discover the latest business tools and systems, and find out more about career opportunities and the future work patterns of our profession. Our keynote speakers, meanwhile, will ensure delegates have the latest insights across clinical and business practice, technology and the wider public health agenda.
The full programme and online registration will be available early in the new year, but you can sign up for email alerts to be the first to hear when registration opens, programme announcements and more:

BSHAA's annual Congress is the main event of the year, providing as it does the opportunity for members to gather together in pleasant surroundings and enjoy high quality speakers, the largest trade exhibition of its kind for their profession as well as networking and social opportunities.

BSHAA Congress 50th anniversary logoOriginally a bienniel event, the decision to hold Congress annually was made in the Society's 50th anniversary year, in 2008, when members met in Warwickshire. Since then there have been conferences in Harrogate, at the iconic Manchester United football stadium, Old Trafford;  at the Richoh Arena in Coventry and for four years, at the East Midlands Conference Centre, in Nottingham, most recently for the 2016 event.

Over the years many researchers and scientists well known for their work in audiology have spoken at the Congress including Dr Mead Killion, Dr Brian Taylor, Professor Robert Sweetow, Professor Harvey Dillon and Dr David McAlpine.

The 2017 Congress was held on May 12th and 13th 2017 in Colchester.
