The aim of the Summit is to take stock of the achievements that have been made in the world's leading accessible destinations, regions and cities, to share and discuss best practices and methods and to chart a course for the development of One World of Inclusive Tourism for Everyone.

This event also aims to accomplish the following:

  • To make a decisive push forward on the determination of a set of international norms and standards with regards to accessible tourism and transportation;
  • To highlight the economic benefits for destinations to be fully inclusive and accessible, and to develop and enhance accessible tourist products;
  • To establish a world partnership and a common international strategy to develop universal accessibility1 for infrastructures and tourism services, transport services, and to increase the availability of information on different destinations' accessibility.

1 Universal accessibility, founded on an approach of inclusion for all, permits each person, whatever his or her capacities, to use services offered to the population at large in a manner that is identical or similar, autonomously and simultaneously.
