Among the speakers to have confirmed so far are Francisco J. Sardón, President of PREDIF, Sylvia Longmire, business owner and advocate of the rights of people with disabilities, Marco Pizzio, Head of the Department of Social and Accessible Tourism at the AISM, John Sage, founder and President of Accessible Travel Solutions, Mirjam Versteegh, owner of Disabled Accessible Travel and Virginia López Valiente, Managing Director and Owner of Cruises News Media Group. Together they will try to paint delegates a true picture of the current situation of accessible cruise tourism.
Together with the Region of Valencia Tourist Board, AISM – Italian Multiple Sclerosis Association -, Accessible Portugal and with the support of Valencia City Hall, ENAT - European Network for Accessible Tourism - Cruises News Media Group and Valenciaport, PREDIF has organised this event with the aim of promoting the normalisation of cruise tourism for people with disabilities, reduced mobility and with accessibility needs.
