When planning a trade show, especially events targeting people with disabilities, inclusion should be keep in mind to ensure your events are accessible to anyone that happens to attend. Trade show venues are often large, packed with people and sometimes complicated if there are multiple halls and exhibition areas. It is already tricky for anyone who are not familiar with the venues to quickly find a booth you want to visit and imagine what the challenges could be for individuals who cannot see. This is why every trade show should have a clear and well-presented map of the exhibition areas - and the map should be accessible for everyone.

Talking Tactile Map at BrailleTech 2016

Last month we designed an interesting tactile map for the BrailleTech 2016 exhibition in Brussels in collaboration with our partner Integra-Belgium. The map comes with audio, speaking aloud the booth names and navigation instructions to help people who cannot see to quickly get an understanding of the area and learn how to get to the booth they want to visit. The audio content presenting the booth names can easily replaced every year if the booths and exhibitors change.

Here is a video of 3D TactMap of BrailleTech 2016, presented by Integra-Belgium:
