A disability can affect anyone at any stage throughout their life.
The Accessibility Innovation Showcase is a first-of-its kind event hosted by the Ontario government to raise the profile of accessibility, demonstrate advances in technology and market-ready innovations, and stimulate investment and growth of the industry.
Coinciding with the 2015 Parapan American Games and in celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act and the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, this high profile five-day event (August 7-11, 2015) will bring together top innovators, investors, local and international dignitaries, government and the public from across the province.
This is a unique opportunity for:
– Innovators to showcase and pitch their products while building valuable business networks
– Investors to preview new ready-for-market products
– The public to experience and learn about accessibility technology first-hand
Located at the MaRS Discovery District, this Showcase features both a public and industry-focused program including: exclusive investment and networking opportunities, interactive demonstrations, kids learning zone, sport zone, speaker series, hack-a-thon, rapid prototyping and public tours.
