Plan on joining your friends and industry peers this Friday, March 13,  at the Columbus Airport Marriott. In addition to a wonderful networking opportunity and the chance to enjoy the great location, we will hear from Rosemarie Rosetti, Ph.D., on the topic, Accommodating People with Disabilities.  All of us conduct or host meetings, conferences, webinars and other events. This information will be helpful to any industry to assure we are aware of ways to have inclusive events. 

Workshop: 1:45 -3:15 p.m.:  Accommodating People with Disabilities at Meetings and Events

It’s a legal, social and professional responsibility to adapt your meetings and events to accommodate speakers and attendees with disabilities.  Rosemarie Rossetti

Having been paralyzed from the waist down with a spinal cord injury, Rosemarie Rossetti, Ph.D. speaks from her wheelchair sharing her own dramatic personal story. She presents to audiences throughout the U.S. and beyond as a recognized expert on inclusive design. She has also earned recognition for her home that is the top-rated universal design home in North America.

In this presentation, Rossetti addresses crucial points you need to know to anticipate challenges in order to achieve a smooth, gracious, and respectful event experience for every participant. She will focus on: why disability inclusivity is so important, how to set up your meeting rooms, how to remove dining and networking challenges, how to accommodate speakers and guests with wheelchairs, and important resources designed to ease your way as a successful meeting professional.
