On Thursday, June 13 at 8:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. Cory Schaeffer, Cofounder, Listen Technologies will deliver the IS045 session: Hearing Disability Compliance Overview. The course provides an overview of the new hearing disability regulations that came into effect in 2012. For more information visit

“We are seeing a positive trend that more accommodation for those with hearing loss is being made world-wide. Part of this progress is due to updated and new regulations regarding assistive listening systems in the International Building Code (IBC) and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA),” Schaeffer said. “Even though the ADA has been in effect since 1991 and the new standards have been mandatory since March of 2012. T here are still challenges in clearly understanding what the new standards mean to the AV industry. Listen Technologies is dedicated to embracing the latest assistive listening standards and trends and providing every available resource to ensuring our industry is providing accommodation for those with hearing loss in public venues across the world.”

Mike Griffitt, Hearing Loop Training Specialist, Listen Technologies will conduct MT74 session: Hearing Loops – A Review of the Technology and System Applications on Thursday, June 13, 3:00 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. In this course Mike will review the resurgence of Hearing Loops and how this technology is now effectively used in the US and around the world.
