9th March, 2020

From 13th to 16th February 2020, the streets of Chandigarh were bustled with Audiologists, dealers and students from all over India as it was the time for ISHACON 2020. The 52nd ISHACON 2020 is organized by Indian Speech and Hearing Association, Chandigarh Chapter (CISHA) and was held at one of the premier institutions of the country, Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER) in Chandigarh.

ISHACON is an annual convention, which is one of the major events of Indian Speech and Hearing Association and is conducted every year to celebrate the latest developments, research and gain new knowledge in the field of Speech-Language and Hearing. This year it was all very special for us as we were the Platinum Sponsor for ISHACON 2020.

Being the platinum sponsor of the event, we were given a huge area for the setup of the stall. Our day 1 began with welcoming our Indian guests as well as our international guests Mr. Steffen Schafroth and Steffen Rose from Bernafon AG, Switzerland which was then followed by the official launch of Bernafon’s super power Hearing aid LEOX which was attended by a number of delegates.

Integrated on a remarkably powerful microchip, Dynamic Environment Control System™, Leox is Bernafon’s first True Environment Processing™ Ultra Power hearing aid that gives you a new level of sound perception that is as close to reality as possible.

The launch event was attended by big names from the hearing aid industry. The launch was attended by Ms. Aarti Gupta from Times Health, Chandigarh, Ms. Merlin John, Ms. Manju IM, Ms. Neha Chowdhary from Ayush, Ms Bela Jairath from Fortis Mohali, E Mr. Shrikant Kishan from Vizag, Ms. Radhika Mathur form Mathur Radios, Lucknow and Industry veteran Mr. Ramesh Oza to name a few.

The launch event was then followed by a product Presentation on Bernafon newest fitting software OASISnxt and hands on connectivity by our international members from Steffen Rose. Steffen Rose is an experienced Audiologist and Engineer for Hearing Technology with over 20 years of experience is currently working with Bernafon, Switzerland.

On day two, an informative session on the technology “Dynamic Feedback Canceller™ (DFC™)” was conducted by Steffen Rose in the auditorium which was attended by the audiologists as well as the students. Day 2 was a busy and productive day for us as our stall was visited by 100’s of delegates and they were all very delighted and enthusiastic to know about our hearing aid LEOX.

The next day was an amazing day for us as it was the day of PPL (PGI PREMIER LEAGUE), our very first sponsored event in association with Digital Plus 24x7 at ISHACON 2020. A beautiful cold morning with a bit of sun was just perfect for cricket. We enjoyed every moment of it and seeing a lot of enthusiasm and energy amongst all the teams that participated on the field.

The last day began with our international experts handing over the certificates to the hearing aid professionals. Plus, a session with our experts was conducted where they talked about the features, connectivity and hands-on experience on the software as well as the LEOX in depth.

The entire ISHACON 2020 experience was brilliantly amazing and we loved every bit of it, from day 1 till the last day. We had an incredible opportunity to meet, interact and communicate with the greatest minds in the hearing aid Industry across the country. We would also like to take an opportunity to thank ISHA and its members for taking an initiative once again.
