How we delivered the 4th International CAFE Conference
We choose to work with Attendable due to their passion for inclusion and true understanding of what makes a successful event, which really stands out. Attenable is one of the only event agencies working in the way that they do, with this real focus on diversity and inclusion and ensuing that every delegate can fully engage in events. Catherine and the team have become trusted partners. But more than that, they are allies in the disabled space and really committed to improving things for disabled people.

As a speaker with access needs due to my disability, I love working with Attendable because I know they have everything covered in terms my meeting my access needs and ensuring the event is accessible. It means that I don’t have to take on that role in addition to being a speaker, which is something I shouldn’t have to do in the first place but usually falls on me to advise on.
Attendable have taken our aspirations for our annual Awards event to another level. They are calm, professional, incredibly well connected and meticulously organised. Their ideas enabled us to take a dream and make it reality. Despite joining late on in the organisational process, they kept me and my team sane and added so much to the preparations. The event was a masterclass in creating wonderful accessible experiences for both virtual and in-person attendees. I am already looking forward to working with them again.
Jacqui Wallis, CEO Genius Within
Attendable ensured that the 4th International CAFE Conference was great success, with accessibility at the forefront of each element of the virtual event. Based on our research, Attendable was the only platform that actively sought to ensure disabled people could enjoy and take part in their events. The support provided in the lead up to the Conference was fantastic and the production of the live sessions with multiple contributors was exactly what we were looking for. We would highly recommend working with Attendable and will certainly look to do so again for future virtual events.

Working with Attendable is a very positive experience. The team is always responsive and constructive and working with them has been absolutely key in the development of our very successful online Masterclass programme. They are always there for us and always go the extra mile to ensure that our events are delivered to a very high standard. They are great people to work with!

Attendable have proven to be flexible, creative and dedicated partners for the Sport for Development Coalition, and it has been a pleasure to work with them. From project planning to execution, they are focused on providing efficient and effective solutions, and have acted as a key ‘member’ of our small back-end team supporting the Coalition, which is a national network of organisations intentionally using sport and physical activity to generate positive social outcomes.

We worked with Attendable to create a wholly virtual programme for the AbilityNet Tech4Good Awards for the first time this year. The programme launched with a weekly series of events livestreamed to YouTube and Facebook, followed by virtual networking session on Zoom for our finalists, a high-production value virtual awards ceremony and even a virtual winners dinner. We were overwhelmed by how successful the experience was and had nothing but positive feedback from everyone who entered the Awards and from our partners and sponsors. Attendable made the switch to virtual this year a seamless one.

Attendable were our chosen event delivery partner for inABLE’s first-ever virtual conference, Inclusive Africa. Every step of the way they advised us on which virtual event platforms were best suited to what we wanted to achieve and how best to design and deliver the event. Working seamlessly with our communications team, creative and PR agencies, the Attendable team went above and beyond to ensure our virtual conference was a huge success. Leaving no stone unturned, every aspect of the 2-day conference was catered for, including the accessibility provisions for speakers and participants with disabilities. Attendable’s laser-focus on planning and production meant I was able to concentrate on the bigger picture.

The team at Attendable organised an online event for the Recruitment Industry Disability Initiative (RIDI) annual awards ceremony. This was the first time the awards had happened online, and we had all been upset that we couldn't meet in person. However, the event was amazing - somehow Attendable re-created the excitement and celebratory atmosphere, and many attendees said it was by far the best online event they had been to. It was professional, slick, friendly, accessible and ran like clockwork, due, no doubt, to so much work behind the scenes. I would thoroughly recommend Attendable to any company wanting to put on an incredible online event.
Jane Hatton, CEO Evenbreak and Chair of Judges, RIDI Awards
Attendable were the perfect delivery partners for our event. Their expertise allowed my team and I to concentrate on content, safe in the knowledge that production and logistics were looked after. We had multiple segments with panelists from several countries and nothing seemed to be a problem for Sarah and Catherine who gave us great advice throughout. Attendable’s professional approach enabled us to deliver an expertly produced event in a relaxed atmosphere and we look forward to working with them again.

This year, we have all been impacted by the shift to more online events whether for presenting, learning or being social. In this context, Activity Alliance has been raising awareness for more accessible and inclusive digital activities. So when we wanted to deliver an important event, our core request was an event that reaches everyone, and considers the communication barriers that exist for so many disabled people. Attendable was able to offer a combined solution, that meant an extension of our team because they respect the same principles. They were able to offer a range of ideas for different costs and help us deliver a fantastic event that everyone still talks about today. We cannot recommend them highly enough.
