Michael Caines has joined the Blue Badge Access Awards which reward venues with a thoughtful, innovated and design led approach to accessibility.
The Blue Badge Access Awards 2023/24, set the Gold Standard for Access in the wider hospitality sector, they find the very best in accessibility for the disabled guest, and aims to reward hotels, restaurants, leisure and tourism venues and people that are getting ‘accessibility with style’ right.
The Awards were first launched at the House of Lords in 2016 to recognise, celebrate and reward accessibility across hotels, restaurants and other public venues worldwide. The judges focus on style, thoughtful design, innovation and liberty that delivers exceptional accessibility. The aim is to encourage hospitality industry bosses, architects and designers worldwide to consider ways in which they can address the current and future needs of disabled guests.
This is the first time Michael has been involved in the awards, he said, ‘The awards challenge design and highlight good and bad practice. It’s asking people to go the extra mile rather than ticking boxes and saying we’re done the minimum. I’m hugely excited to be involved in this great cause.’
The awards raise the awareness of inclusivity and accessibility and also allow people with disabilities to know what is out there.
