What are people saying about BbWorld?

  • test

    By far the most helpful part of the conference was the access I had to Accessibility experts through the Knowledge Bar and scheduled sessions. I made more progress in three days on this topic than I have in the past year of effort.

  • test

    The Knowledge Bar was especially useful since people were there pretty much throughout the conference. When I had questions, I could easily get them answered.

  • test

    All sessions attended were very informative and will be useful when applying to our initiatives.
