Organisers of this September's EUHA Congress have confirmed they have all the rubber stamps for the countdown to continue right up to the event's opening on September 15.

Lower Saxony, whose parliament convenes in Hanover, host city for the 2021 EUHA Congress, had to give the final administrative go-ahead for the event. This was confirmed at the end of August, and EUHA will be held from September 15 to 17 under rigorous safety conditions.

"Since the beginning of this year, we have been working on organising the 2021 edition of the EUHA Congress. We are delighted that it will be possible for anyone in our line of business to finally meet again in person. After the resolution of 25 August 2021, the state of Lower Saxony confirmed again that the Congress can take place," says Beate Gromke, President of the European Union of Hearing Aid Acousticians.

Participants can look forward to twenty first-rate presentations from renowned experts, four tutorials, and four forward-looking presentations on Future Friday. Ninety-one exhibitors will present the latest in technology on 15,000 square metres of exhibition space in Hall 6, plus a special programme on Future Friday. This year, too, the Congress Get-together on Thursday evening will be a good opportunity for an exchange of ideas.

Dr. Stefan Zimmer, Chairman of the Board of the German Hearing Instruments Industry Association (BVHI), and organiser of the industry exhbition at EUHA, celebrated the imminent return to an in-person event after 23 months: "From the start, we were convinced of the concept of our event, and are pleased that, after many months of meticulous preparation and close coordination with the authorities, we are now able to offer an industry exhibition that is safe to visit for the international community of audiologists and acousticians."

3G principle (vaccinated, recovered, tested)

Tickets can be booked online. The ticket shop will stay open during the Congress.

On the Covid safety front, contact tracing is possible and participants can save their 3G proof (vaccinated, tested or recovered) directly to their data in the ticket shop. This ensures quick entry via the 3G Fast Lane. If attendees are not able to provide their 3G proof online, their certificates will be scanned on site. A testing facility is also available against a fee. However, arriving tested is ideal. A negative PCR or antigen test must not be older than 24 hours.
