Events for Everybody – AITCAP Webinar

Events for EveryBODY –
Grow your event’s success through better inclusion and accessibility

Our latest free webinar in our AITCAP Conversation series happened live at 4 PM AEST on 28 July 2022!

Events, whether big or small, can often overlook accessibility given their temporary nature, but there are many things you can do to make your event more inclusive. Watch our discussion on how to make your event welcoming to everybody with accessibility experts, event organisers and venues who have embraced accessibility.

We are always looking at how we can, as a business, remove the burden of accessibility from the customers and make it a focus of the business instead.
