Accessible Events: A Guide for Meeting and Event Organisers

This Guide, which has been developed by the Meetings and Events Industry of Australia in partnership with the Australian Human Rights Commission, is designed to help those responsible for organising events and to ensure they are accessible for people with disabilities – whether they are presenters, sponsors or participants. It is based on the experience of organisers who are responsible for creating accessible events.

Organisations wanting to make an event more accessible often have difficulty in finding out what they can do to ensure the best possible access is provided. This guide is intended to provide information and resources to help achieve that goal.
