How is the Future Hub different from the Hands-On Pavilions in the hall?
The Hands-On Pavilions are also located in the HearTECH Expo hall, but are separate structures set up for hands-on learning of best practices in two core areas: aided-speech recognition testing and verification.
These pavilions are separately located and have specific hours on Thursday and Friday for general learning and more one-on-one learning opportunities.
These pavilions complement the Future Hub in providing additional CEU education options in the hall dedicated to specific topical areas. With live set-up of equipment and staffed with expert audiologists in the areas of aided-speech recognition and verification, these stations are unique learning options you will want to check out.
