Our 9th International Conference 2024 will focus on “The Future of Accessibility” and will take place on April 14-17, 2024 in Tel Aviv.
The goal of this year’s conference is to strengthen the understanding of the importance of advancing accessibility and inclusion on all levels and making sure that the future will be accessible from “day one” and when relevant by design.
The content of the conference will be the transition from implementing accessibility to maintenance and to excellence in accessibility. Further, we will discuss the challenges of the next years and possible solutions, the challenges of making future technologies accessible by design and the developments in the field of accessibility. We will discuss the necessary tools to promote, enhance, jump-start and improve the accessibility and inclusion process regardless where your country stands in the process to full accessibility and inclusion.
The Conference is relevant for anyone whether in government, municipalities, retail, health, education, transportation, culture entertainment and more. In addition, we will introduce various technologies and best practices designed for organizations and businesses, as they seek to improve the service they give to people with disabilities and the elderly.
We anticipate about 1,000 participants mostly from Israel and abroad, amongst them participated in the past heads and policy makers from governmental agencies and municipalities, UN and NGOs representatives, heads and CTOs of leading Hi-Tech companies and many more. Additionally, every year, the conference serves as a meeting point for all professionals in the field of accessibility. It is an opportunity to enrich our knowledge, meet new colleagues and find new ways to impact society and continue to improve accessibility and inclusion. We have a large exhibition of companies displaying technologies, services and assistive products from Israel and abroad.
