Our team configured the conference registration platform to ensure it meets standards as per W3C’s WCAG2.0 accessibility guidelines.

Digital accessibility is key at DiverseAbility: NDIS Inclusion Conference, our team ensure that all registrants experience a seamless and hassle-free registration process.

Our team also worked on another digital accessibility project with NSW Department of Family and Community Services, on their two-day conference Live, Work, Play: The State of Inclusion.

Being part on these projects has opened our eyes to the needs of an audience that are largely forgotten during an event planning process. Many organisations are unknowingly excluding delegates with a disability from their event,  of which 32% are managers and professionals (source: Human Rights Commission). There has always been an emphasis on physical access, but now digital accessibility should also be paramount, extending to accessible digital apps and digital marketing material.

At some point in our lifetime at least 70% of us will have a temporary or permanent disability.  When planning an event, it’s highly likely you will have delegates of different abilities.  There are 2.1 million Australians of working age with disability and 32% of those are managers & professionals.  Contact us today and we will ensure digital accessibility is ticked off your event planning list.
