It is our pleasure to welcome you to Montreal, for the 1st ever World Summit Destinations for All. The issue of accessible tourism has never been more relevant: 15% of the world’s population live with a disability, and with a greater aging demographic, this number will only increase. It is time to think of tourism no longer solely as a luxury, but as a need that is shared by everyone. By making tourism accessible to all, destinations are also:
- Responding to the reality of an aging population
- Providing a more inclusive focus on all customer requirements
- Winning the loyalty of travellers
- Distinguishing themselves from the competition
- Contributing to their destinations’ civic pride
The World Summit Destinations for All promises to take the current dialogue on accessible tourism to a new and exciting level. By bringing together key players in tourism, culture, and transportation, the Summit aims to identify and implement the necessary measures to establish international tourism that is inclusive and accessible.
Organized by Kéroul, Québec’s leading authority on accessible tourism, and supported by numerous prestigious international organizations, the World Summit Destinations for All promises to chart a new and exciting course towards universal accessible tourism.
We hope you join us on the journey.
See you Montréal October 19-22, 2014!
