OpenWeb

eSolutionsGroup presents OpenWeb, an accessibility conference personalized for your organization. 

Learn how to make your website and online presence accessible from some of the leading experts in the country. Since 2013, we have delivered this conference to hundreds of public sector employees.

How it works

We travel to your location and present the information in a full-day conference event, complete with our expertise on some of the most pressing accessibility issues, including:

  • Design
  • Content
  • Mobile and applications
  • Images and graphics
  • PDFs

We work with you to personalize the conference agenda, promotional items and location. Our conference packages include planning the event with you from start to finish and hosting the conference in the available location and venue of your choice. 

OpenWeb doesn’t just teach you how to align with the law; it teaches your staff how to think accessibility first for an inclusive, immersive and accessible website for everyone.

Accessibility and the law
