Largest Independent Event in Hearing Industry


The Hearing Innovation Expo is the largest independent event in the hearing industry, and is the second largest gathering of hearing professionals outside of the American Academy of Audiology’s annual convention.

Starkey says the Expo is “a platform for bold ideas, education, inspiration and cutting-edge technology”. The event has allowed Starkey to showcase its latest technology and has also served as a platform where the company has made major announcements. At the kickoff of last year’s Expo, the company announced its surprise partnership with hearable maker, Bragi.


“The 2018 Hearing Innovation Expo is designed to showcase the brightest minds in business. Our speakers will inspire guests to think differently, turn ideas into action, be bold in the marketplace and continue to change the future of the hearing industry.” –Brandon Sawalich, President of Starkey Hearing Technologies
