Panel Discussion: The Game-Changer Tech Needs, But Isn't Talking About

Wednesday 12 June 2024
Main Stage

The UK Government's ambition to make the country a technology superpower and boost economic growth is facing a significant obstacle: widespread digital exclusion. 

An alarming number of digital platforms, including e-commerce, social networking, Video Streaming, Government websites and apps, fail accessibility tests, leaving significant revenue untapped. This urgent issue of digital exclusion is a risk to our society and your business. By neglecting certain segments of our society, we risk widening the gap of inequality and impeding overall progress.

Join us for a transformative discussion on:

  • Prioritising accessibility principles, regardless of your industry or sector. 
  • Discover how to garner support from stakeholders and instigate a cultural shift within your organisation, embedding accessibility as a fundamental value across all operations. 
  • Gain invaluable insights into the impact of accessibility laws and guidelines on your organisation and explore proactive strategies to surpass mere compliance and foster truly inclusive digital experiences. 

This isn't just another panel talk—uncover essential insights and actionable strategies for seamlessly integrating accessibility into your tech projects. Whether you're a developer, designer, project manager, or business leader, seize this opportunity to shape a more inclusive digital future, a responsibility we all share.

Don't miss this critical moment. The future of technology hinges on accessibility — and your role in this discussion is crucial.
