How to plan an accessible and inclusive event

The guide is called “Disability Awareness and Planning for Accessibility during Events” and offers plenty of valuable information such as:

  • An introduction to disability awareness when organizing any kind of event. This includes understanding common barriers to accessibility in events and venues, as well as the economic benefit of inclusivity.

  • A guide to help event planners understand their responsibilities and legal obligations. For example, the UK Equality Act requires all events – including conferences and exhibitions – to be accessible and inclusive, and makes it illegal to discriminate against disabled attendees.

  • Lots of practical and useful tips, advice, and information to help plan and organize a safe and disabled-friendly event – including guidelines, best practices, and checklists to help prepare and improve event accessibility.

  • This guide is also part of a larger resource on event safety and planning – so you and your readers may find other tools and resources that could be useful for anyone organizing an event.
