Join us for another event
ENSURE YOUR DIGITAL PRODUCTS AND SERVICES’ ACCESSIBILITY, AND FUTURE-PROOF YOUR BUSINESS
Join us for another inspirational session in beautiful Gothenburg, where we’ll bring together Nexer’s international accessibility expertise for a session of talks and discussions. You’ll hear insights from both the Swedish and UK public sectors, explore the latest trends and strategies, and gain practical takeaways on helping your organisation embrace accessibility as a core principle – and deliver the best user experience for all.
As we look ahead to the coming 2025 European Accessibility Act, it’s crucial that organisations across Europe act now to ensure that their digital products and services are accessible. For businesses in the private sector, this means fulfilling specific accessibility requirements for services. That includes the provision of information about the service’s accessibility features and facilities, ensuring easy accessibility of websites and mobile devices, and implementing practices and policies that address the needs of people with disabilities.
We proudly present Elisabeth Aguilera, Chief Accessibility Officer at Arbetsförmedlingen, Shaun Conner Accessibility Manager Monzo Bank, Danny Lancaster and Supreet Singh, Accessibility leads at Nexer and Emma Urquhart, accessibility specialist as this evening’s inspirational speakers.
Date: 7th November
Time: 16:00 to 18:30
Where: Lindholmen Science Park at Lindholmspiren 5, Gothenburg
