HLAA offers sponsorship opportunities that allow companies to extend their reach to the many diverse populations of consumers with hearing loss that we serve, including parents of younger children, young adults, veterans, people in the workforce, underrepresented populations and those with age-related hearing loss.

HLAA offers a broad range of programs on both the local and national level, including the HLAA Walk4Hearing, annual convention or the many educational, outreach and training opportunities we offer. We work together with our valued corporate partners to deliver innovative and vital programs that directly benefit consumers with hearing loss and their families.

Walk4Hearing

The HLAA Walk4Hearing is the largest program of its kind for people with hearing loss. Since its inception in 2006, more than 90,000 walkers have raised in excess of $13 million to raise awareness and funds for people with hearing loss. Funds raised support both local and national programs and services for people with hearing loss. Thousands of walkers and supporters will participate in one of the 18 Walk4Hearing events being held in cities across the country in 2018.

Connected TV

It’s a growing market, with 74% of households in the U.S. currently owning at least one CTV device. These devices are essentially internet-enabled televisions, whether that connectivity comes from a streaming device like the Amazon Fire Stick or Roku, an internet-enabled gaming console, or it’s a smart TV with its own built-in connection.

For consumers, these devices allow users a way to watch television without a cable subscription, giving them the new nickname of “cord cutters.”

For HLAA and our corporate partners, this means a whole new way to reach consumers, especially those who have not taken steps to treat their hearing loss.
