Delegates are unlikely to be rushing to book their flights, but a physical—yes, in person—September EUHA Congress and Industry Exhibition has been announced by its organisers. Companies can already book stand space.
Those longing for a return to travelling, meeting and mingling will be hoping the fearlessness of EUHA organisers can be matched by positive developments in the coronavirus crisis and a return to the kind of freedom of life that will allow a projected 8,000+ visitors to keep the date of September 15 – 17, 2021 in Hanover, Germany. The scene is set for the 65th International Congress of Hearing Acousticians, and it will be possible because the lecture programme and Industrial Exhibition are being organised under the constantly updated hygiene measures and protection concepts of the venue, the Deutsche Messe Hanover.
Dr. Stefan Zimmer, Chairman of the Board of the German Hearing Instruments Industry Association (BVHI) says: "The call for professional, person-to-person exchange in our industry is getting louder. We are pleased to make it possible, in September, in a safe environment - organising the exhibition under the guidelines necessary to ensure the safety and health of visitors and exhibitors."
A key innovation for the 2021 show will be an online digital directory for exhibitors, including an industry nomen-clature. It means trade show visitors will be able to search online for exhibitors, products, product categories or specific services, and identify suitable contacts at the show in advance. Further digital services for virtual company and product presentations are available to exhibitors and individually bookable. These services are offered exclusively for exhibitors with a stand booking.
In 2019, 150 exhibitors from 22 countries participated in the Industry Exhibition. The Congress and accompanying Exhibition, held in Nuremberg, attracted 8,250 international visitors.
