ACCAN is delighted to announce the full speaker program for M-Enabling Australasia 2013 being held on August 14-15 in Sydney. A wealth of local and international experts on accessibility and mobile technologies will feature at the conference, which will highlight why people with disability and older people have been missing out on the mobile revolution and how this can be fixed.

The event will bring together – for the first time in the southern hemisphere – people with disability and older consumers, developers, manufacturers, government, regulators and mobile service providers.

"One of the core ideas behind the conference was to have everyone together in the same room, having an honest discussion around how we can make mobile apps and technologies accessible for everyone," said ACCAN CEO Teresa Corbin. "We're thrilled with the range of speakers that will be attending the event and I'm really looking forward to the innovative ideas that will be discussed."
