People with reduced mobility make up 35% of the population and rarely travel alone. It is in the tourism sector’s interest to develop accessible destinations for a section of the population that expects only one thing: to be able to travel as easily as everyone else!
The 2nd World Summit on Accessible Tourism - Destinations for All, aims at sharing and disseminating best practices as much possible with the tourism sector in order to consolidate a global network of destinations for all, accessible to people with specific needs.
Five core topics to help build obstacle-free travel for all
The Summit will be held in Brussels (The Egg) on the 1st and 2nd of October 2018. The programme will include a series of innovative ideas, specific case studies, experiences and best practices during the plenary and parallel sessions throughout the two-day event. The main topics of discussion will be:
1) Destination Management
2) Hosting and Security
4) Transport and Mobility
5) Leisure Products and Activities
In parallel to the Summit, an exhibition will allow you to discover accessible tourist destinations, products and services from all over the world. Find out more about the session themes topics and themes here.
