About the webinar

As it stands today, all hotel websites in the United States, Canada, EU and many other countries are required to comply with the WCAG AA-level standard of website accessibility for people with disabilities. Failing to do so can invite the risk of a lawsuit, particularly in the U.S. where the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is concerned.

In this webinar, our digital agency team will discuss the requirements for web accessibility compliance and how hotels can ensure they meet the standards. Topics include:

  • The history of the ADA and website accessibility regulations
  • The most recent WCAG AA-level standards
  • A hotelier's action plan to achieve web accessibility compliance
  • Common grievances in ADA compliance lawsuits and how to remediate them
  • The importance of audits and ongoing monitoring

We will also be previewing Travel Tripper's new ADA Web Monitoring Platform, a new tool that automates web accessibility audits and alerts hotels when websites are out of compliance. Visit www.traveltripper.com/ada to learn more about our ADA Compliance services.

Dominate from search to stay.
