Flash Friday: Is Your Event Really Accessible?

September 29, 2023 @ 11:00 - 11:30


Join us for our newest PCMA ELI subscriber, and PCMA and CEMA member-exclusive benefit, Flash Fridays!

“Do you have any dietary restrictions or special requests?”

Many #eventprofs add that question to their registration form, serve gluten free meals, and believe we’re checking off the accessibility and inclusivity checkbox. But designing and building a truly accessible event requires thinking much deeper and more thoroughly about your room setup, furniture, access points, and emergency procedures.

Nabeel Ramji, Accessibility Advocate and Co-Founder of Pedesting will join Anh Nguyen for this casual, lunchtime session. Diving into timely and specific topics #eventprofs care about, Nabeel will share his experiences attending events in a wheelchair and the simple, but overlooked, things planners can do to ensure their event is truly wheelchair accessible. Anh and Nabeel will guide an interactive discussion and give attendees a chance to ask questions, share their perspectives, and learn from each other.

Topics covered:
– Designing registration spaces for attendees in wheelchairs
– Emergency evacuation of attendees in wheelchairs
– Identify spaces that are oftentimes overlooked when designing for wheelchair access

Specific topics, short and sweet. Join us.

This meeting will use Zoom’s live transcription feature for captioning.
