.Rimini, 8th October 2018 . Attention and concrete effort for increasingly more accessible tourism is growing.

Europe alone counts about 127 million people .9.9 million of whom are in Italy - elderly people or people with disabilities of various kinds who want to travel and are in search of tourist facilities and destinations equipped to satisfy their specific needs.

The service is provided by two societies that promote it, Bed&Care and Village for All, and will be available at Rimini Expo Centre for users who find getting around difficult. Special mobility scooters will be available for use at the contact point in South Hall to visitors who have made an on-line booking by accessing the homepage of the three Shows,
Yet another brick that is well-positioned in the field of attention to questions of disability and accessibility for which IEG has always stood out by providing disabled users with numerous means of support for visiting the halls: from reserved parking to easily accessible entrances, easy access to the main line Milan . Bari railway station, appropriately equipped toilets and wheelchair availability.

YOUR DISABILITY MANAGER: HOW IT WORKS
The service offered by Bed&Care and Village for All is aimed at organizations, companies, hospitality facilities and professional tourism operators and offers support in meeting the requests of their clients with special needs. The service consists of activating an on-line help-desk through which the special needs client can book all the assistance services, rentals and transfers required. The help-desk is accessible through a banner placed on the homepage of the company´s website. The company thus becomes a ´Your Disability Manager service partner´.
From that moment on, every request regarding the services available and information on the location´s general accessibility are managed on a landing page inserted on the Bed&Care platform, totally freeing the partner of the problem of managing these requests without the specific professional skills required to answer them.
