Getting Accessibility, Inclusivity and Ethical Meetings Back on the Agenda

01 Mar 2023
Association & Corporate Event Theatre
Association Events

Accessibility has taken a back seat when set against other industry trends, from sustainability to inclusion. However, as we look at a new way of conducting our meetings, it now becomes the third point in an ethical triangle that brings all of these subjects together.

In this session, we look at how these three areas; inclusivity, accessibility, and sustainability, can be addressed to create better meeting outcomes, better delegate engagement and higher values in front of meeting attendees.

Featuring expertise in inclusive meetings and specifically association meetings, including:

Industry expert Julie Watterston
