M-Enabling Summit 2019, June 17-19, 2019

ATLANTA (February 06, 2019) —

The organizers of the M-Enabling Summit are pleased to announce the theme of the 2019 event, “Accessibility: Transforming Users’ Experience.” During the past eight years, the M-Enabling Summit has established itself as a leading global conference for empowering accessible technologies, with its primary focus on next-generation innovation and breakthrough solutions for seniors and users of all abilities.

New accessible technologies are rapidly transforming the way users interact with digital interfaces. In a dramatic paradigm shift, alternative modes of communication and assistive solutions are made
available to all users at an ever-lower cost due to the considerable economies of scale of the global mobile marketplace. Speech recognition, artificial intelligence, image interpretation, IoT solutions, robotics, Augmented Reality, localization and wayfinding services, for instance, are embedded in an increasing number of applications and services available to users.

What impact do those trends have on mainstream consumer products and services? How are persons with disabilities and aging users benefiting from those trends? How can large organizations in both the public and private sectors adjust to new consumer expectations? How to optimize those new interfaces from an accessibility and usability standpoint? What further disruptive accessibility innovations to expect? The 8th M-Enabling Summit will bring to its participants a new array of resources and responses to answer those pressing questions.

The conference, known for featuring high-level speaking panels, will be comprised of influencers from industry, government, and civil society organizations. Throughout the 3-day event, the upcoming edition will address the above topics in dedicated thematic sessions, as well as feature technical training sessions, presented by the International Association of Accessibility Professionals (IAAP).

The conference will also be accompanied by a product showcase, featuring 40+ exhibitors with enhancing products and services for the market.

Register for the M-Enabling Summit 2019.
