AbilityNet’s view is that there should be ‘a digital world accessible to all’. By launching TechShare Pro every year, we’re able to bring like-minded industry experts and delegates together to teach, learn, and broaden their experience in the digital accessibility arena, helping to create a more inclusive space.”
Sponsored by Microsoft, the event will host a range of panel discussions with key industry players, roundtable conversations, and exhibition booths with sponsors and businesses such as Barclays, Facebook, Google, Intuit, and Sony and more to confirm.
Throughout the conference, guests will be able to attend keynotes and panel discussions that will feature global expert insights on a range of topics, including the business advantage of accessibility and inclusion, legislation and accessibility, inclusive workplaces, how to meet European and UK public sector accessibility regulations, accessibility leadership and changing culture, plus much more - there’s something for everyone from every industry.
In addition to the range of expert-led sessions there will be lots of opportunities for networking with the accessibility and inclusion tech community from around the world.
