I’m exited to announce I’m speaking at the 2022 Accessible and Inclusive Tourism in the Asia-Pacific Conference over 17th – 26th May.
This 4 day travel event consists of multiple short sessions which can be viewed when aired or watched later. So it’s accessible for those in different time zones and those needing to pace usable hours* to function.
I am on the Stepping Up Your Game For Travellers With Hidden Disabilities panel along with Travengers and Aspect. Our session on May 19th is aimed at business and organisations looking to improve accessibility to people with hidden disabilities.
So whether you are a hospitality business with a presence in Asia-Pacific** looking to tap in to this growing purple pound market or a differently-abled traveller wanting to explore the area further and connect, AITCAP 2022 is for you!
*usable hours = people with fatigue related conditions have a limited number of hours each day to function and have to prioritise all tasks carefully.
