Criteria for planning an event adapted to people with reduced mobility
When planning an inclusive business event, it's essential to verify that the venue meets several criteria. This may include checking ground level access, confirming there are no impeding physical barriers, ensuring adequate space is available, and appropriately preparing for guests with reduced mobility disabilities.
The space must, at the very least, have the following features:
- Floor-level access, with ramp or lift;
- Wide and unobstructed areas to circulate;
- A lift to access upper levels;
- Facilities adapted to the sitting position (reception or cloakroom desks with lower section), toilet facilities with space and transfer bar, and equipped with a sink adapted for wheelchair users).
- Access to all areas where the event is held (meeting rooms, platforms, catering areas, terraces, etc.).
