Mobile technology is a potential game changer for people with disability and many older people; providing access and inclusion through usable, accessible and affordable mobile equipment and services.

M-Enabling Australasia 2013 will provide attendees with the opportunity to hear from mobile service providers, developers, manufacturers, regulators, policy makers and organisations representing people with disability and older people. The event includes a stimulating program of speakers and panels discussing the current and future trends in accessible mobile technology, as well as a showcase of the latest innovations addressing the specific needs of people with disability and older people.

This is the first Australasian conference of its kind and the only stage of the M-Enabling initiative to be held in the Southern Hemisphere, with previous events held in Washington DC, Beijing, Milan, San Francisco and Moscow.

The themes for the conference include:

    • How mobile technology enables increased participation and productivity

    • Why M-Enabling matters to Australia – the Australian market and local demographics

    • Shaping future market technologies by collaborating on M-Enabling opportunities

    • International perspectives: with keynote speakers from the US

    • App developers and hardware manufacturers – what works for consumers and what’s technically possible

    • Service delivery – perspectives from health, tourism, transport, education, financial and emergency services

M-Enabling Australasia 2013 is a joint partnership between the Australian Communications Consumer Action Network (ACCAN) and Telstra in cooperation with G3ict and EJ Krause and Associates.
