ASHA Store
All roads lead to the Exhibit Hall! It’s the main street of the ASHA Convention—the dynamic, central hub and marketplace of our annual event, connecting attendees with exhibitors offering the latest tools and services, new technology, and everyday practice solutions. The Exhibit Hall is also home to the Career Fair, various lounges, the ASHA Store and more!
The ASHA Store will be stocked with items to enhance your professional practice. Discover new CEU courses, reference books, consumer education products and logo merchandise. They’ve been developed just for you, and the store is one of the few opportunities to see these products first-hand. Everything in the ASHA Store is discounted for convention attendees.
ASHA Member Services Center
This solution center, where you’ll always find ASHA staff ready to help, is easily accessible at the front of the hall. Whether you need assistance with your membership or simply have questions about the Exhibit Hall, Member Services Center staff can provide information.
Audiology Row
This area is the destination in the Exhibit Hall for audiologists. Exhibitors offering audiology-focused products, services and demonstrations are grouped together to create Audiology Row. Take a stroll down “the row” with your audiology colleagues.
Career Fair
If you’re looking for a new job, come to the Career Fair to speak with representatives from top employers in the field. Prospective employers from hospitals, schools, universities, staffing companies and private practices—many with multiple openings—will be at the Career Fair and are ready to hire. Knowledgeable recruiters will be on hand to discuss your job search. Whether you’re ready to change jobs or just beginning to think about it—take the first step at the Career Fair.
Caring Square
From Thursday through Saturday during the ASHA Convention, the Caring Square offers a fun and unique way for attendees to give back to the community. The Caring Square in the Exhibit Hall will be open all day, and activities are designed so participants can jump in whenever they have some free time. Past projects have included building dollhouses for children, writing letters and holiday cards for veterans, and creating games for speech-language treatment. A professional facilitator will be on hand at all times to provide guidance and instruction and to ensure a great experience.

If you’re looking for tools to help you in your work, the Exhibit Hall has it all—from books by experts on hot topics, technology solutions and software, to games and toys for treatment with children. The Exhibit Hall offers a once-a-year opportunity to see, touch and test the latest equipment, products and technology.
