Access Services experts gather once a year to raise the most important questions during a plenary session which has become over the years, the meeting point for those working in accessibility services across EBU organizations.
This event is a great opportunity to meet with other colleagues working in accessibility and share projects, exchange best practices and learn from each other’s innovations and approaches.
Participants will get the chance to cross-pollinate ideas and exchange, not only with their peers, but also with people from the rest of the industry and European associations.
All participants are invited to attend pre-events on Thursday 8 November, the day preceding the EBU Access Services plenary meeting.
