Article 1 - Who is eligible?

The Intro-OK-label is given to organizers that improve their accessibility by collaborating with Intro.

When basic accessibility conditions are met, the label is given to the organizer before the actual event.

Article 2 – The basic accessibility

The basic conditions are the following:

● The information concerning the accessibility should at least be spread on the event website or in a brochure (if the event doesn't have its own website).

● The event should have a special parksite for disabled people near the main entrance and a parking near the campsite (even if the ampingsite is for disabled people only).

● All public areas are accessible to disabled people. If this is not the case, this has to be communicated well in advance.

● Specific measures are taken to ensure a good visibility for wheelchairs users, people with reduced mobility, blind and visually impaired (+60%).

● There are enough accessible sanitary units.

● Guide dogs are allowed on site of the event. However, the organizer can ask for a proof of the dog owner. This rule is also applicable for dogs in training.

The previous guidelines are the basic conditions to obtain the label.

Considering its special mission, Intro can't support inaccessible events. Therefore, if in reality the event doesn't respect the conditions, it won't get the label for the following edition.
