This is especially true in light of the many recent legislative changes impacting this segment throughout Europe. The 2013 Europe Disability Matters Conference will feature executive presenters from best practice corporations along with experts from government, academia and the non-governmental organizations sectors, sharing their experience on how to appropriately support and market to this very large, loyal segment of the population.
