Register NowUNWTO, Fundación ONCE and the Spanish Association for Standardization will co-present a series of tools aimed at implementing international standards which encompass the entire accessible tourism value chain.
On the occasion of the International Day of Persons with Disabilities 2022, the partners launched a user-guide targeting public administrations and tourism destinations, geared toward the implementation of ISO 21902:2021. This set of guidelines sheds light on specific actions that can be carried out by organizations entrusted with designing tourism policies, strategies and marketing plans.

The speakers will bring to the table their sound arguments, proofing once more, why Tourism for All is indeed a major business opportunity in the recovery process of our sector.
The event will feature simultaneous interpretation from Spanish into English. The ONCE Foundation will provide conditions to ensure the physical, auditory and visual accessibility measures in place.
