Welcome to AudiologyNOW! 2015: Steer with Success
We invite you to join us for the largest gathering of, by and for audiologists in the world, AudiologyNOW! 2015. Mark your calendars now for the American Academy of Audiology’s annual convention, March 25-28, 2015, in San Antonio, Texas. Join friends and colleagues for this unique and innovative educational experience; an event you won’t want to miss.
We’re heading back to San Antonio where the Riverwalk awaits you. This locale combines all the fascinating features a city has to offer along with a large enticing convention hall to achieve success. So, we want you to join us to be a part of this year’s convention experience. We think you’ll agree in finding the layout and floor plan wonderfully favorable to learning and networking. Once again, one of the Program Committee’s goals is to make the AudiologyNOW! experience between attendees and exhibitors as interactive and mutually beneficial as possible.
We’ve listened to your comments and suggestions and have been hard at work making just a few changes to ensure the Academy’s convention in San Antonio will be one to remember! You will leave feeling the success you’ve encountered over your few days in San Antonio and be motivated to start implementing what you’ve learned on the following Monday morning. Be prepared for a full schedule of events on Wednesday, which as a reminder was considered the PRE-convention day in the past… but not anymore! That first evening will be highlighted with our “Celebrate Audiology” right in the exhibit hall! This first night, two-and-half-hour event, features food, drink, and networking, which will be part of your successful convention experience.
Make sure to check out the schedule of events early so you don’t miss any events that could enhance your experience. Half-day and full-day Learning Labs are back on Wednesday along with the Academy Research Conference (ARC), which will focus in the vestibular system. We will also be featuring some of the tried and true favorites, such as the grand rounds sessions and hearing aid research in review along with other top-notch educational Featured Sessions and Learning Modules.
We guarantee there will be something for everyone, including the third annual SAA Student Convention, exhibitor courses, industry updates, clinical and research posters, research podiums/Student Research Forum, and the DiscovEARy Zone. We feel that the program is very conducive for great interaction and learning among students, professionals, and the exhibitor participants.
Friday night features a new and exciting “Niosita: Fiesta Audiology,” a night in Old San Antonio. This evening on the streets of San Antonio offers traditional dinner foods, drink, and entertainment in the historic, “original” downtown village of La Villita along the banks of the renowned San Antonio River Walk from 6:30-9:00 pm. You won’t want to miss this flavorful treat. More to come on how to register.
