Got back this past weekend from the main hearing aid and audiology conference in Europe called UHA (Union der Hörgeräteakustiker Kongress). Its location alternates between Frankfurt and Nuremberg, and luckily this year it was in the latter. The little that I saw of the city was charming. Much of it was leveled in WWII, but they’ve reconstructed many of their old landmarks so that the town center incorporates the partial appearance of a preserved medieval village, complete with the surrounding city wall and towers. Here are some photos:
Interestingly (or not), the meeting’s name has been changed to EUHA (E for European) to make the meeting seem that it is representative of all of Europe rather than just of Germany (in the past it has been known as the German Congress). Still, almost all of the meeting is still in German and the people that I talked to said that the meeting will never in the foreseeable future be held outside of Germany.
