During the September 2019 meeting of HLAA-TC it was announced that the next “Live Well With Hearing Loss” Conference will be held at the Marriott Minneapolis West in St. Louis Park from 9:00 to 3:30 on Saturday, October 10, 2020. There will be no conference in 2019 instead this 2020 conference is being organized.
The 2020 conference is 90 minutes longer (which will allow attendees more time to interact with exhibitors). The Marriott Minneapolis West venue was chosen for its location and many conference amenities. Attendees and exhibitors will easily be able to stay at the hotel and extend their conference experience. Exhibitors will be in a professional conference space across the hall from the speaker presentations allowing exhibitors the ability to converse freely with attendees.
There will be three speakers (who will be announced at a later date). Each of the speakers either works in the hearing-related industry or lives with hearing loss themselves (or both). In years past speakers have spoken on looping technology, the University of Minnesota Center for Applied and Translational Sensory Science (CATSS) projects, etc. As more information is released about the 2020 conference HLAA-TC will be updating this blog weekly in the year leading up to the conference. We will feature information on exhibitors, speakers, general conference information and venue information.
