AbiliTrek Consulting

At AbiliTrek, our accessibility consulting firm, we identify andremove barriers from the travel and service industries. We increase accessibility by including everyone; expanding their customer base will improve Universal accessibility which will in turn boost business’s revenue. Our team has experience in the following areas: physical building access issues, IT/Website/App accessibility, and inclusivity awareness training workshops.

 

Established in 2016, AbiliTrek improves accessibility within the travel and service industries so travelers can trek without boundaries and barriers.
