A Customer Focussed Approach to Inclusive and Accessible TourismService Excellence stream
Travel is all about “the experience”, which should ideally be seamless from planning to arrival back home. Unfortunately for people with disabilities, the tourism industry does not always recognise their needs, wants and desires in providing experiences, accommodations and services. Increase your understanding of the market for inclusive and accessible tourism, and create an awareness of what a traveller with a disability is looking for. Bill will look at the tools you need to develop a customer service approach, information provision, product development, and marketing to make your offering inclusive to all. Sometimes small things can make a huge difference. Log in to access and download conference materials.
