There are almost 14 million disabled people in the UK. That means that up to one in five of your customers are likely to have an access requirement. With an ageing population and increase in disabilities in the over 50s, this looks set to increase further.
Are you missing out on an opportunity with this key market? ABTA's one-day seminar offers practical support on a range of accessibility issues in connection to travel.
The challenge for the travel and tourism industry is to start mainstreaming inclusivity into your business, so that you can broaden your target markets. It's not just disabled people who benefit from accessibility, it is all of us at some point in our lives, from those with young children, or temporary illness to the elderly.
The Package Travel Regulations 2018 require that travel and cruise companies, selling more than one component of a holiday, provide full information on the accessibility of their products for many different types of impairments. Progress is also being made towards an Aviation Passenger Charter to enhance the customer experience for PRMs in airlines and airports.
The day will be moderated by ABTA's Director of Destinations and Sustainablity, Nikki White. She will be joined by disabled holidays specialists, people with access needs and forward-thinking mainstream travel agencies.
A full list of speakers will be announced shortly.
