UNIVERSAL ACCESS IN TRAVEL: SYMPOSIUM AND EXPOSITION

BALTIMORE , MARYLAND ~ MARRIOTT BALTIMORE WATERFRONT HOTEL


Fifteen years after the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Department of Transportation and the Department of Justice are currently considering substantial revisions to accessibility guidelines for transportation and other public accommodations. The Universal Access in Travel: Symposium and Exposition will bring together Federal policy officials, leaders in aviation and other transportation modes, and leaders in the disability community to examine the successes and challenges in implementing the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Air Carrier Access Act in the travel and tourism industries.


In a series of concurrent sessions, join these policy and business leaders in examining the best practices and regulatory challenges in providing:



  • Inclusive and Universal Design
  • Hospitality
  • Security and Safety
  • Navigating and Wayfinding
  • Customer Service and Etiquette
  • nternational Standards


In conjunction with the symposium, there will be an exhibition hall featuring vendors and other service providers, demonstrating the many ways to provide accommodations and access to all travelers.
