AAA 2021 Virtual
Angela Shoup, PhD
We are excited to announce that the Academy is pivoting AAA 2021 + HearTECH Expo to a fully virtual conference.
In light of the continued challenges and concerns regarding COVID-19 and in an abundance of caution for your health, safety, and overall comfort, moving to a virtual event is the most responsible path forward to maintain optimal conditions for our attendees, presenters, exhibitors, sponsors, corporate partners, and the communities and patients you serve.
We have a plan to reshape our typical conference format into a virtual conference that is inclusive and reflects the core value of the Academy, advancing the profession of audiology. The AAA 2021 program committee of dedicated volunteers is already working diligently to ensure that the offerings provided will create value for our attendees through a strong digital format.
The transition to a fully digital event comes after countless conversations and considerations with the city of Denver, Denver convention center and hotels, discussions with members and committee volunteers, and our evaluation of the potential impact on you—your travel implications, your safety and health, and your overall conference experience.
While we will miss seeing you all in person, we are excited to transform our educational and interactive events into an online platform that will showcase high-end presentations, networking, exhibit hall connections, fun gaming opportunities, and more—all in a convenient virtual environment that you will be able to access from any location.
