Access Services Plenary

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 an excellent opportunity to meet with other colleagues working in accessibility, 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 them with their peers and people from the rest of the industry and European associations.

The 2023 Access Services plenary meeting will take place in Belgrade, Serbia, on Friday 16 June 2023, at the kind invitation of RTS.

On Thursday 15 June, all delegates are invited to attend a pre-meeting event, including a guided tour and networking drinks.
