As a business leader, knowing what is now isn’t enough – you also need to know what will be, or you will be left behind.  Tomorrow’s world will look vastly different from today’s, so strap on your jetpack and get ready for an exhilarating “sneak peek” into the contemporary culture of tomorrow. You will be treated to a glimpse of everything that matters – including the future of finance, technology, consumerism, transportation, communication and more. This is your opportunity to ride the waves of the future and leave competitors in your wake.

Travelers with mobility disabilities spend $58.2 billion per year on travel and go on leisure trips with nearly the same frequency as those without mobility issues, and yet this audience is frequently overlooked by travel providers. Wheel the World is a travel booking site with the mission of making the world more accessible. Discover the needs of this market and how your travel organization can be a part of the solution through the company’s innovative Accessibility Mapping System and Wheel the World Academy, a program for travel professionals to learn more about accessible tourism, disabilities, and universal design.
