How much of a good opportunity is accessible & inclusive tourism for my business or destination?
What can I do to make my business or destination more accessible & inclusive?
Where to go in Asia-Pacific when travelling with a disability?
In the lead up to our big yearly conferences in May, we are running a series of free webinars where we connect with each other and tackle issues that are often brought up in the tourism industry when “accessibility” and “inclusivity” are mentioned.
Here is the recording of the first one we organised.
The Accessible & Inclusive Tourism Conference in the Asia-Pacific (AITCAP) is a yearly virtual event showing how catering to the valuable accessible & inclusive market promotes sustainable growth and creates great opportunities for the travel & tourism industry in the region.
We connect travelers, businesses, policy makers and destination marketing organisations, to create a momentum and contribute to the upgrowth of the sector.
“Thank you for organising AITCAP and allowing me to be one of your speakers. I have received so much value just from the networks of the other speakers to learn and listen to their experiences. And the conference has not even started…” Chris K.
“Market differentiator is a key, and I don’t think businesses really understand that being accessible & inclusive at this point is a huge differentiator.” Julia S.
“2.5 sessions into the conference and I already have pages of notes and links. Well done AITCAP team!” Ben A.
“Promote Access. Deliver Inclusion.” Chris K.
“I have a disability – I have money and I love travel, so this is great. I am proud to be called a person with a disability. I don’t have challenges, unless society puts them in my way.” Tricia M.
“All of the speakers are very inspiring for other businesses and services elsewhere.” Antony L.
“So many things ive never thought about – fantastic!” Maxine
“Fantastic afternoon!” Sandee F.

“True, false promises disappoint but a willingness to make an effort (that is a part of a right attitude) to do the best to meet the requirement makes a lot of difference.” Ravinder A.
“It’s the awareness you have just given me. As an able person within the tourism sector, you presentation has brought so many un-thought of areas to my attention from accommodation to attractions, to my own tours!“
“I 100% agree and always follow the mantra of the most important thing to pack when you travel is your positive attitude!”
“Compliant (in whatever context that means in your country) should be tick a box. It is a minimum standard. And will be accessible to most. Inclusive however is beyond compliance. True accessibility is a misnomer as its an individual judgement.”
“Wonderful! I have happy tears, brilliant video.”
“I’m glad to know about your company. It’s content that I can share in my country as a good example in hiring disabled people.”
“Another eye-opening session for the tourism industry.”
