Designing Accessible Events and Shows: An Opportunity and An Obligation
July 22, 2021
Presented by: Christine Selinger, Director of Education – Abilities Expo and Kevaleen Lara, Director of Marketing – Abilities Expo
With virtual shows taking center stage over the past year, organizers had to ensure that the designing of their events could reach everyone. From platform choices, to content development, to downloadable takeaways, building accessible shows ensures that everyone can participate and that your customer base is as large as it can be! People with disabilities make up 25% of the population. Are you and your events increasing your opportunities to reach all, specifically this group?
Add back into the mix, the recent return of live events. Now more than ever, inclusiveness is a must, regardless of whether your event is digital/virtual, hybrid or in-person. How compliant and inclusive is your event or show? Are you compliant as it relates to content on your website or event platform, with your speaker presentations, allergy and dietary disabilities, not to mention ADA compliance onsite? – the list goes on!
Join us for this informative webinar on how accessible initiatives can ensure you are creating event experiences for ALL, whether digitally or in-person, especially those with disabilities!
