AccessibleEU Germany - Digital inclusion: a win-win approach for companies and customers (24-NW-DE-01)

This AccessibleEU event brings together attendees to learn why digital inclusion is a win-win solution for companies and customers and how they can implement it in their organisation.

Accessibility is not just a matter for people with disabilities. It is a topic for everyone who can benefit from user-friendly and accessible products, services, and environments. Networking is required in accessibility so that no one is excluded or disadvantaged due to physical, sensory, cognitive, or social limitations. Accessibility is also a factor for quality, innovation, and competitiveness, because the European Accessibility Act and its German implementation (BFSG) obliges private economic actors for the first time to ensure accessibility to improve the participation of people with disabilities in social life. The law applies to the majority of products and services aimed at consumers that are introduced to the market or offered after June 28, 2025.
