The XR Access Symposium is the biggest event anywhere dedicated to making XR accessible, and our sponsors make it possible.

What is the XR Access Symposium?

The XR Access Symposium is an annual conference aimed at connecting the many stakeholders who need to work together in order to make XR more accessible for disabled people. The first Symposium was held in New York City in 2019 and brought together more than 120 thought leaders from industry, academia, accessibility, and advocacy to create actionable plans to solve the unique accessibility challenges posed by XR. While the Symposium went online-only during the pandemic, we’re proud to have returned to a hybrid conference format starting in 2023.

The Symposium is a mixture of plenary talks, discussion groups, and hands-on demonstrations that enables thorough knowledge transfer. Our conference community includes an international and interdisciplinary mixture of researchers, industry professionals, and disability advocates. Based on prior attendance, we anticipate 100-150 in-person attendees and 200-300 remote attendees.
