All New for Convention 2016: The Experience Room
(Cabinet Room on Concourse Level)

Stocked with products offered by our exhibitors, the Experience Room is the place to come to try out the latest technology for people with hearing loss in an environment much like your family room – comfy furniture, TV, card/game table, and more.

The Room will be staffed by Au.D. students from the University of Maryland and Gallaudet University, giving them greater exposure to technology and you, the person they will eventually treat in their practices. Exhibitors, there is no cost associated with this; if you are interested in additional information contact Nancy Macklin.

Come experience Life in the Experience Room.
