DUSSELDORF, GERMANY: The first M-Enabling Forum Europe will take place September 27, 2018, parallel to REHACARE in Düsseldorf, Germany. E.J.Krause & Associates (EJK) and the G3ict (the Global Initiative for Inclusive ICT, established with the support of the United Nations) organize this conference and showcase to advance awareness of new milestones for accessible technologies and environments. “M” stands for Mobile.

EJK and G3ict launched the M-Enabling Summit in Washington DC over seven years ago to support the spread of accessible and assistive technology for older people and users of all abilities. M-Enabling Summit  has developed into the leading global conference for empowering accessible technologies and next-generation innovation for the disability community with over 600 conference attendees, 140 speakers and 58 sponsors and exhibitors in the 2017 edition. The M-Enabling Global-Briefing-Tour staged further events in San Francisco, Moscow, Sydney and Milan.

M-Enabling Forum Europe taking place in Düsseldorf in 2018, will include panel discussions about rules and standards as well as case studies, showing how mobile technologies and assistive services enable independent living.

M-Enabling is a unique venue that brings together policy makers, standardization bodies, manufacturers, network operators, software and application providers, banks and organizations representing various segments of older people and persons with disabilities including multi-disability advocacy organizations like the European Disability Forum. In the showcase area sponsors and exhibitors will demonstrate solutions, innovations to the conference attendees (expected 200-250 attendees).

REHACARE, organized by Messe Düsseldorf for 30 years, is the leading conference and exhibition for Independent Living in Europe with 39.000 visitors and 780 exhibitors in the recent 2017 edition. REHACARE visitors also can visit the showcase of M-Enabling Forum as the Congress Building is next to exhibition halls.

EJK, G3ict and Messe Düsseldorf are pleased to hold REHACARE (September 26-29, 2018) and the M-Enabling Forum (September 27, 2018) in parallel.

“We are very excited to welcome the M-Enabling Forum to Düsseldorf during REHACARE 2018. With so many overlapping themes and target groups the two events are sure to complement each other well. There is really no better location and time for the Forum to make its debut in Germany”, said Joachim Schäfer, Managing Director Messe Düsseldorf.

“With the European Accessibility Act poised to accelerate the adoption of accessible digital products and services across Europe, the timing of the M-Enabling Forum at REHACARE could not be better” said Axel Leblois, President of G3ict, the Global Initiative for Inclusive ICTs. “ We very much look forward to facilitating a dynamic dialogue among European participants in the M-Enabling eco-system on the considerable emerging opportunities brought by the EAA for both industry and persons with disabilities.”
