Depending on the delegates you attract to an event, and any additional requirements they have, it may be necessary to provide additional support. For example: a personal assistant, note taker or British Sign Language interpreter may need to be employed; or documents may need to be produced in alternative formats such as large print, or provided in electronic form, potentially in advance. This activity should always be done in full consultation with the appropriate delegate, as they will be fully aware of their own requirements.
Many services, such as note takers, or personal assistant can be arranged through your own staff and will not cost anything apart from time. However, do consider your budget before you offer sign language facilities, for example.
Consider any equipment you may need to hire, for instance portable ramps for accessing entrances and staging or height adjustable lecterns.
