Tickets are now on sale for 'The Future of Hearing Technology', BIHIMA's inaugural conference in Birmingham on 11 and 12 May that features an interactive workshop programme in partnership with BSHAA.



Last year, the British Irish Hearing Instrument Manufacturers Association (BIHIMA) announced the launch of its inaugural conference on ‘The Future of Hearing Technology’, which will be held on Friday 11 and Saturday 12 May 2018 at Edgbaston Cricket Ground.

Tickets and further details about this two-day event, which has been designed for audiologists and all within the hearing and healthcare sector, have now been released. The conference will focus on the ever-increasing role of technology in improving the lives of people with hearing loss.

Sound experience exhibition

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

Speakers and interactive workshops

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. 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. BSHAA is also holding its AGM at the event.


Finally, there will be a programme of evening entertainment, including a relaxed 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 the BIHIMA technology manufacturers.


Tickets can be purchased now, with an early bird rate of £235 available until the end of March.
