One of the best ways to keep up to date with what’s going on in the world of web accessibility is to connect, learn, and share experiences with others in the industry. A conference, an event, or a worldwide recognition day are great ways of doing that. We compiled a list of some of our favourite past accessibility conferences happening again in 2019.

If you know of other must-attend events not included on the list, let us know and we’ll add it.
