A favourite in the calendar for many accessibility minded people in Perth, this fantastic one day event is your chance to learn and share about web accessibility in a casual environment.

This year we are proud to be partnering with W3C Australian Western Region Chapter, who are contributing guest speakers from the W3C in addition to an already amazing list of local speakers.

And of course The Great Debate returns for it’s 8th edition! This year’s topic: “Web accessibility should take a back seat during a global pandemic.”


We'll be featuring your favourite local speakers plus international and interstate guests.
