Bloor organises regular events for our end-user and vendor communities including:
  • Annual Bloor Symposium
  • Executive programme events such as roundtables, workshops and seminars
  • Executive peer-to-peer networking events
  • Tele-briefings and Webinars
We have found that CIOs and other senior executives are keen to engage in discussion and debate with technology partners. Bloor brings relevant service and technology partners together with our CIO and leadership communities, in ways that maximise the value to both, making them mutually beneficial conversations. Bloor events enable CIOs and other senior executives to come together with technology vendors and service providers in a non-sales environment for the mutual benefit of both the vendor and the business. What sets Bloor apart from other providers are three key points:
  • We have close relationships with many of the most successful CIOs around the world
  • The calibre of our facilitator, often an ex-CIO, will create a frank, honest, and constructive atmosphere where you can gain the insight into what your target audience thinks.
  • Being vendor, media & research agnostic, we are recognised by the CIO community as an independent voice, able to create mutually-beneficial conversations between CIOs and vendors
Bloor is happy to assist you if your organisation is running or participating in an event. For instance, we can provide a speaker on an appropriate topic from among our independent analysts or a facilitator. Where appropriate we can carry out background research on the issues being addressed. For more information, please contact us.

In a tough economic climate, it’s more vital than ever that your customers, service users and staff find it easy to communicate with you, and access your services: and in the internet age, this means ‘e-accessibility’. The UK’s leading conference in this vital field looks at the strong business drivers for making web sites, IT systems and all digital technologies as accessible as possible to all.

This is not a conference for techies! Nowadays, every organisation is at least partly a technology organisation. Your employees use IT; and your customers or public service users do as well. With millions in the UK affected by some form of disability, from dyslexia to mobility problems, no organisation can afford to be using technology that is not as accessible as possible, not to mention the legal requirements and your corporate or public sector ethics.

Whatever stage you are at with your thinking on ‘e-accessibility’, from novice to old hand, our conference will help, from practical advice on where to start to focused discussion groups to hone your expertise.

Aimed at inclusion workers, marketing managers, communications managers, web teams, ICT staff and human resources managers, we will help you widen your user base; comply with the law; and improve recruitment and retention.

Speakers include Ed Vaizey, Minister for Culture, Communications and Creative Industries; Stephen Duckworth, Board Member, Olympic Delivery Authority, London 2012; and Struan Robertson, Product Counsel, Google. The event is hosted by OneVoice for Accessible ICT Coalition with E-Access Bulletin.
