Making your events accessible
At Conference Craft, we believe that every individual deserves an inclusive and accessible event experience!
Here’s how you can make your next event a beacon of accessibility:
Safety first: Ensure that all ramps and accessibility features are safe and fit for purpose.
Accessible venues: Select venues with wheelchair ramps, elevators and other accessibility features. Remember to share venue accessibility details with attendees beforehand.
Seating sensibility: Arrange seating to accommodate diverse mobility needs. Consider designated areas for service animals if applicable.
Sensory considerations: Recognise and address sensory sensitivities by offering quiet zones or providing noise-cancelling headphones.
Inclusive materials: Print event materials in a readable font, and use high-contrast colours to enhance readability for individuals with visual impairments.
Communication is key
Set the tone: Communicate a commitment to accessibility from the get-go. Include accessibility information in event promotions and registration materials.
Accessibility liaison: Designate a point of contact for accessibility concerns. Encourage attendees with specific needs to reach out, ensuring a personalised and inclusive experience.
Post-event feedback: Collect feedback on the accessibility of your events to continuously improve and refine your practices.
Let’s make every event a celebration of diversity, ensuring that ALL participants feel seen, heard, and welcomed!
