Gold Coast: A City Where Everyone Is Included

Our latest free webinar in our AITCAP Conversation series happened live at 4 PM AEDT on 2 March 2023!

With the Accessible & Inclusive Tourism Conference heading to the Gold Coast in April, it’s the perfect opportunity to talk to businesses leading the way in access & inclusion in this City.

City of Gold Coast by and large has an attitude of "What can we do to make this work for you?", rather than "This isn't for you" which is a really good thing.

Our expert panel includes:
