We decided to call our form “Personal Event Configurator”. We recommend that you place the link to this in a prominent spot on your pages, and describe it in such a way that the visitor understands this can be used before ordering a ticket.
The form is based on the principle “Nothing for us, without us”. The goal is for both attendees and organizers to get a clear inventory of what accessibility / inclusivity needs are required and met. Users will not only be invited to respond to things we have added, we will also ask them for input. That input can be used in future version of the form to be integrated.
If you don’t live the experience of the target groups you wish to provide for, you risk that you make the wrong assumptions about people’s needs. No matter how good the intention, you may end up doing and organizing things that are counterproductive.
This is meant as a way to make you think of the way you can make your inventory. Each question gives you the possibility to type in additional information into a textfield.
