Accessibility – Dublin 2019 Worldcon Bid

One the reasons I’m proud to be a part of the Dublin 2019 Worldcon bid team is the importance that has been placed on accessibility. We have been incorporating it into every aspect of our planning from the beginning, which is, in my opinion, how it should be done. We’re determined to make as much information as possible available well before site selection, so that people can vote with all the facts they need at hand.

To that end, the access team did a tour of the proposed location, and the report from the team has been made available today on the Dublin 2019 website.

Take a read and you’ll see what I mean by “incorporating accessibility from the start of our planning”.

Accessibility isn’t a last minute, nice to have bolt-on feature. It is something all conventions should be working on from the very beginning.
