Buyer's & Seller's Summit: Americans With Disabilities Act – What EVERY Website Owner/Operator Needs to Know Today

Room: LeadsCon Breakout Stage
More than 1 billion people live with a disability. For many, the wealth of information, entertainment and commerce the rest of us enjoy is inaccessible. The blind, deaf and immobile experience of your website is something designers and developers rarely consider. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires you to comply with standards that most websites ignore.  
 
These standards are a moral and ethical dilemma, but it is also the law, opening up you and your company to costly litigation. Most web designers believe they have ADA "covered" because they ran a simple app to check compliance. You are NOT covered! Did you know that the ADA is now part of the California Consumer Protection Act (CCPA), too? CCPA brings even more exposure.  
 
Join us as we discuss what accessibility means in the digital world and why it costs companies money every day. The same law that requires businesses to provide wheelchair ramps applies to your website. We will discuss the legal requirements and the practical application of accessibility techniques.

Buyer's & Seller's Summit: Why Performance Marketing is a Trend That’s Here to Stay

Room: RingPartner Breakout Stage

Join us for a discussion on the benefits of using a performance marketing strategy to grow your business, including:
  • Detailed tracking conversion rates and clear ROI
