Accessibility Pledge

After the largest inclusive Commonwealth Games ever was held in our vibrant city in April 2018, now is the time to continue to grow as an accessible tourism city and welcome all.

The success of your business and the tourism industry in competing across the global markets is reliant upon a service culture that exemplifies the best the world has to offer. The foundation of our service must be a spirit of inclusiveness where people of all abilities and ages feel welcome. An inclusive tourism industry will benefit all guests, including people with a disability, people with prams, temporary injuries, or heavy bags, or an older person who may find it hard to walk, see or hear. We invite you to discover how your business is already accessible. It is time to promote your product by pledging to understand and take action within your business for the benefit of all.

Gold Coast Tourism invites you to PLEDGE that:

  • Your business will have a clear and easy to find Accessibility Guide on your website;
  • Your business will nominate at least one staff member to be the Inclusive Champion;
  • Your nominated Inclusive Champion is interested in taking part in the Accessible Tourism Workshops;

PLEDGE NOW!

AFTER PLEDGING, WE WILL WORK WITH YOUR BUSINESS AND YOUR INCLUSIVE CHAMPION TO PROVIDE:

  • An easy to use template to discover and create your online Accessibility Guide
  • Helpful resources and guides for your team
  • More context on the Accessible Tourism Workshops that will outline the accessible tourism market and the benefits to your business
