“Seattle is a city that is home to innovation and has been on the forefront of visionary adaptations from music to technology and industry.”Brenna Carroll, AuD, Program Chair, AAA 2023+HearTECH Expo
Seattle, Washington is a fitting place for AAA 2023+HearTECH Expo to set up shop and call home from April 19–22. Audiology is entering a new era with government-regulated over-the-counter (OTC) hearing aids, compacts such as the ASLP-IC facilitating interstate practice and tele-practice, and advancements in technology and best clinical practices in a post-COVID-19 world.
If you’re a Midwest or East coast resident, this is your time to find out if West coast really is the best coast! If you’re a native, or live a state or two over, take a short drive over to show the newcomers what Seattle has to offer. Not only will you get an amazing conference experience with 10 featured sessions, 200+ clinical and research posters, dozens of networking events and activities, and chances to make connections with industry professionals, but you can see an incredible city in the process.
The Emerald city, so named for the surrounding greenery no matter the season, celebrates its visitors with a variety of festivals for food and culture, outdoor activities supported by ecological diversity (mountains, oceans, desert, oh my!) and the industry titans such as Microsoft, Starbucks, Costco, and more that keep the city booming.
