Launchpad Pitch Fest

We have, once again, been invited to present at the Travelability Emerging Markets Pitch Fest, in June.
Pitch Fest is the world’s only pitch event to showcase assistive innovations, services and products that advance accessibility, sustainability,diversity, equity and inclusion.  The Sunflower will be invited to give both virtual and in person presentations to a panel of judges who will be attending.

The Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Programme had the honor of presenting during Pitchfest 2021. Introducing a new programme in North America during Covid was challenging, and Pitchfest was an excellent solution! We were able to reach the right audience across a number of sectors and had our first US city, Visit Mesa, adopt the programme. Today the programme continues to grow, we have 45 airports and 4 DMOs that support the Sunflower. Many Thanks to the Travelability conference team for their great work.“ — Lynn Smith, Hidden Disabilities Sunflower
