M-Enabling Summit

Since the mid-2000’s mobile networks and technologies have brought access to telephony and the Internet to billions of users – 7 billion as of 2017. This phenomenal success and the intense competition among leading technology providers have generated unprecedented innovations in accessible user interfaces, accessible and assistive apps, special services, and Smart Home and Smart Cities solutions benefiting persons with disabilities.

G3ict launched the M-Enabling Summit, in partnership with E.J. Krause and Associates (EJK) in 2011, in cooperation with the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to facilitate the interaction between app developers, technology providers, operators, advocates, government, accessibility experts and services providers to further promote innovations in accessibility for persons with disabilities.

Held annually in Washington, D.C., the M-Enabling Summit includes an innovation showcase, a conference program with more than 40 thematic sessions, technical briefings provided by the International Association of Accessibility Professionals and the annual FCC Chairman's Awards for Advancements in Accessibility (Chairman’s AAA).

The M-Enabling Summit has featured prominent speakers since inception among industry leaders, policy makers, advocates and innovators. It has established itself as a leading venue for decision makers seeking information on accessibility solutions, multi-stakeholder cooperation and the promotion of digital accessibility innovation.

M-Enabling forums have also been organized in Milan, Italy; Sydney, Australia; Moscow, Russian Federation; San Francisco, California hosted by GSMA at the 2017 Mobile World Congress Americas. In 2018, G3ict and EJK announced the launch of the M-Enabling Forum Europe in Düsseldorf, Germany (September 27), in cooperation with REHACARE 2018 at Messe Düsseldorf.
