The Accessible Tourism Landscape of New York City at ADA 30
Since its passage in 1990, the ADA has driven a great expansion of accessible destinations, attractions and events in New York City. Today people needing accessible accommodations and solutions have a wide choice of tourism-related activities, from arts and culture to entertainment to sports and recreation. Yet there is still an enormous amount to accomplish on the road to full accessibility for all.
Please join us for a 90-minute virtual Zoom event that brings together leaders in the intersecting worlds of disability and tourism. We will explore how accessible tourism has evolved , where it is today and where it is headed. We’ll look at these questions from the vantage point of destination managers and visitors expecting the best in accessibility, and discuss how the presence of Covid-19 is affecting accessible travel and tourism. The discussion will be led by Peter Slatin of The Slatin Group, along with Commissioner Victor Calise of the Mayor’s Office for People with Disabilities, and will bring together leaders in culture, sports, tourism and hospitality.
MOPD is glad to provide both ASL and CART for the webinar.
