Accessibility in the field of hospitality

How to make tourist locations accessible to people with disabilities

Experts: Serhii Titarenko, Nina Matsiuk, Volodymyr Vysotskyi, +9

They say that a person's problem is not a disability, but the barriers that surround the person. This series was created for representatives of the hospitality industry to overcome obstacles in providing quality service to tourists who, for example, move around in a wheelchair, have vision impairment or are hard of hearing.

 

After reviewing the series, you will learn about inclusive leisure options, architectural accessibility in hotels and other facilities, proper communication and interaction, and how to conduct tours for tourists with PTSD. And is it true that almost not everyone gets this diagnosis during the war?

 

It is important to say that the adaptation of tourist facilities to inclusive standards adds both reputational and material benefits to a business. According to statistics, the owners' income after such changes increases by 10%.
