MEF ROUNDTABLE People With Disability: A hidden market of a billion you should consider – Thursday 15th July at 15:00pm

The Mobile Ecosystem Forum will be hosting the next MEF Roundtable event, focused on people with disabilities in the telecommunications industry.

Held on Zoom Webinar with large human captioning Eng/Eng, provided by SyncWord, the event will take place on Thursday 15th July from 15:00pm to 17:30pm (UK/BST).

Advances in technology mean we can and should increasingly build accessibility into the design of devices and applications that facilitate our digital lifestyles. The mobile device, accompanied by its accessories and array of apps, can bring the world’s disabled billion into the marketplace as consumers of services.

Whether you are part of an enterprise, a supplier, or an interested industry player, you should have a Chief Accessibility Officer. If you don’t already have one, come and learn from industry representatives about why they are such an important part of any business.

Join the MEF Roundtable in Thursday 15th July to examine the situation and delve into how this opportunity can be addressed. https://mobileecosystemforum.com/events_/people-with-disability-pwd-a-hidden-market-of-a-billion-you-should-consider/?ct=t(Syniverse-webinar-June_COPY_01)
