SATH Congress Will Stress Accessible Travel

The Society for Accessible Travel & Hospitality' (SATH) will hold its 13th World Congress at the Contemporary Resort at the Walt Disney World Resort, January 4–8, 2009. The theme, “Breaking Barriers, Building Bridges” reflects SATH’s continued efforts to break down barriers to travel for people with disabilities. SATH hopes to build bridges among suppliers, service providers, travel agents, tour operators and consumers.

“For over 32 years, SATH has been at the forefront of these efforts, and this Congress, our 13th, once again provides the platform to make this all happen,” SATH said in a statement. “We invite all travel professionals, whatever role you play, be it the traveler or travel agent, tour operator, meeting planner, cruise line, airline, hotel, destination or attraction. Our mission is to help everyone better understand the needs of this important market, which is growing dramatically, by providing a forum for idea exchange, networking and a trade show."

Visits to Universal Orlando and EPCOT are planned. For more information call 800-513-1126 or 561-361-0017, or email [email protected].
