Neha Arora joins X. Festival to talk about accessible tourism. She presents the perspective of a person who has experienced how tourism can often be inaccessible, felt the need for a change and took action upon it. She is part of the theme of Emerging Trends, where we talk about all the big questions tourism professionals and destinations need to find answers to.
With both parents being affected by disabilities, Neha promptly understood why the travel ecosystem was simply not accessible, or sensitive, to the needs of travellers with disabilities. Therefore, she founded Planet Abled, an inclusive travel platform, giving the freedom to travel to everybody. She will help us understand what needs must be addressed and how to change the way the tourism industry faces accessibility.
