Empower 2019, Inaugural Hearing Health Conference Announced

The Empower Conference, presented by Your Hearing Network (YHN) is promising attendees an “unprecedented opportunity to learn, engage, and stay current in the hearing health industry”. The event is offering a customizable schedule of Clinical, Technology, and Business Development focused sessions, allowing participants to determine the right mix of content to suit their unique needs.

After listening to independent practice owners, and through their professional network, YHN discovered there was a desire for a new format. With the support and participation from some of the top manufacturers and practice advisory groups, they are launching the first ever Empower Conference.


A New Type of Conference


Traditional industry events have a single focus, this conference brings together technology innovations, clinical advances, and business development expertise, a shift from specialized meetings to a broader approach.

The highly customizable nature of the conference will allow attendees to choose from nearly 100 different sessions to meet your needs, ranging in topics from Medicare Advantage’s Impact to Competing Effectively as a Private Practice and from Artificial Intelligence in Hearing Tech to Tele-Audiology.

Empower is designed to appeal to all independent hearing health providers and practice owners and their staff, regardless of degree or experience. Attendees can take a deep dive into several cutting-edge topics – all found under one roof, allowing them to receive up to 14 hours of continuing education (CEU) credits.

All attendees will benefit from access to industry information, an opportunity to see competing technology in a single forum, absorb critical business management information, and learn about clinical advances. Added to that, most professionals gain the greatest benefit from any event through the opportunity to interact with peers and learn what is, and is not, working at other practices across the country.

The conference will be held at Disney Coronado Springs in Orlando, Florida, from Thursday, September 12, 2019, to Saturday, September 14, 2019.

In addition to the motivational and business focused keynotes, nearly 100 sessions, and expo featuring over 50 vendors, the professionals at The Disney Institute are creating a pre-conference specifically for this event.  They will be presenting an exclusive, limited availability session focused on fostering customer excellence and leadership in Hearing Healthcare practices.
