Presenting the Business Case to the Board
Friday, 30 June 2006

Location: Novotel, West London, W6

This introductory-level, practical and non-technical conference will explain the content and best usage of Publicly Available Specification (PAS) 78 - guidance which enables you to effectively request and implement accessible, usable websites which can:

  • Improve your business
  • Deliver ROI
  • Help meet obligations under the Disability Discrimination Act 2005

With an aging population, and the untapped spending power of disabled people, it makes good business and legal sense to ensure your site is accessible.

The PAS, developed by BSI for the Disability Rights Commission (DRC), has just been published and applies to all organizations that provide or sell products and/or services on line.

Attend this event to gain the advantage for your organization - be among the first to learn:

  • What PAS 78 is
  • Why you need it
  • When and how to implement it
  • What using PAS 78 will deliver for your business

Who should attend?

  • Management of all organizations that provide a service or sell products or services online
  • All owners, managers and all staff responsible for contracting out, implementing, maintaining and managing websites
