Web Accessibility

Business Case

It makes business sense

Accessible websites are a legal obligation, but perhaps you need more reasons to tweak your event website and registration platform to be accessibility compliant. W3C provide some great business motivators for adopting accessibility.

The Corporate Business Case 

  • Financial gains and cost savings from increased web use due to increased potential market share, search engine optimization (SEO), and increased usability

  • Reducing risk of legal action, high legal expenses, and negative image

  • Public relations benefits of demonstrating corporate social responsibility (CSR)

  • Benefits of an inclusive workplace that supports employees with disabilities

A Not for Profit Organisation 

  • Social responsibility factors, such as the organization’s commitment to human rights, including the right to information

  • Organization’s interest in ensuring that its materials are available to all of its potential audiences

  • Supporting older people with age-related impairments who may be donors
