In an industry first, Guide Dogs Victoria will run its award-winning programme, Dialogue in the Dark, as part of AIME refreshed Knowledge Programme, sponsored by the Melbourne Convention Bureau.
Participants can expect an immersive experience designed to offer them the opportunity to kick-start AIME by challenging their own limits, overcoming boundaries, and discovering their hidden potential for all while being led through tasks in complete darkness by facilitators who are blind and vision impaired.
The Knowledge Programme is all about community, diversity, innovation and inclusivity, and we are thrilled to partner with GDV. This can highlight the extraordinary ability rather than the disability within this community and how we can learn from them.
“Inclusivity and accessibility must always remain top of mind in the meetings and events industry, across employment considerations and for those attending the event. By working closely with GDV, we are able to demonstrate how straightforward it is to be inclusive for the visually impaired and not just talk about it,” said Matt Pearce, Director, Talk2 Media & Events.
