A Quick Summary of NRAC Conference 2017.
As well as representing Aveso at the NRAC Conference this year, we are also excited to mention that our Managing Director, Nick Kent, will be presenting a talk on the related issue of Bariatric Specific Design in homecare and hospital settings as well as the Changing Places Campaign. Uncover the what, where and why in our summary of NRAC Conference 2017.
What’s there to expect from the NRAC conference?
Well, returning for its third year running should be somewhat indicative of a successful venture. The Exhibitors and the talks themselves are focused on topics designed to appeal to those involved in the provision, design and management of the built environment, although it is essential for anyone with an interest in accessibility and inclusive design. With such a wealth of knowledge under one roof, this conference will allow you to update and extend your knowledge on issues related to the design and management of inclusive environments.
Of the When and the Where?
The popular annual conference will be based at the Coin Street Neighbourhood Centre on the Southbank, London’s creative epicentre, on Wednesday 1st November 2017 from 9.00am to 5.00pm.
What will be covered?
A line up of expert speakers is scheduled throughout the day, punctuated by chances to visit industry relevant exhibitors in the dedicated exhibition space and network with others within the profession, as well as stretch your legs and grab some lunch.
The talks will cover a range of subjects; Equality Law and Reasonable Adjustment cases, personal experience from an NRAC Consultant on ensuring the accessibility of University campuses to provide equal learning opportunity in Higher Education, an update on inclusive environment initiates and CIC’s role, design and specification in a Bariatrics setting, the Changing Places Campaign and International Inclusive Design Perspectives to give attendees an insight into how other countries are approaching access and inclusive design.
