2-day community summit for developers, designers & accessibility enthusiasts, jointly run by a11y meetups from all over Europe


Amsterdam, June 13th-14th, 2020 — mark your calendars!

After last year's very first and hugely successful summit in Berlin we are giddy with excitement to announce our next summit for 2020! Again, the summit will be jointly run by multiple web accessibility and inclusive design related meetups from all over Europe, and again there will be a premiere: For the first time, the Accessibility Club will meet outside of Germany, this time welcoming you to Amsterdam!

The summit will take place right after CSS Day 2020 and again feature a full-day barcamp a second day with community run workshops. There are still a lot of details to be figured out, but you should definitely save the date already!

Join us for two days of gaining knowledge about web accessibility, exchanging experiences and meeting like-minded enthusiasts from all over Europe and beyond: June 13th-14th, 2020, in Amsterdam, Netherlands!

Barcamp + Workshops

  • Day 1 is all about conversation and sharing experiences. Barcamp-style sessions mixed with a handful of pre-planned presentations for all attendees, pretty much like we had at the Accessibility Club Summit 2019 in Berlin.
  • Day 2 is for learning, expanding our knowledge and putting things into practise. Visit one of several workshops about developing and designing accessible websites and digital content, run by community members like yourself.

  1. Officially cancelling the Summit

    With all the many things going on, we kinda missed to officially cancel the event up until now (although this won't suprise any of you at this point). With a heavy heart, it's time to say good-bye. Vasilis and I thought about possibilities to move the summit to an alternate format. However, we believe that the a11yclub series of events is all about exchange and meeting other #a11y enthusiasts, and no online-only event will ever live up to that expectation. That said, we decided early on to not …

  2. Sponsoring the Summit — we need your help!

    While the Summit is set to be a community event, run by enthusiasts for enthusiasts, we will still need some funding for major matters of expense and to keep the financial barrier for attendees low. If you'd like to support our effort — by contributing money, food or anything else that might truly benefit our attendees — please get in touch. We're very flexible will try to match your needs as much as we can. However, please don't expect us to distribute useless swag or other materials that …
