It’s the last day of 2017, and we are counting our blessings. We’ve had a wonderful year building community and connecting with incredible allies and advocates from around the world. Together we shared information about thousands of places in cities all over the globe, highlighting the importance of accessibility everywhere.

We heard feedback from you on what matters most when it comes to creating a barrier free world. You wrote to us with personal stories and suggestions on how to improve our platform. You shared successes on what we’ve done well and requests for things we could do better. We’ve listened, and 2018 is going to be a big year for us. A year to take all that we’ve learned and put it into action.

We hope that you will keep with us as we “roll out” new updates (pun intended), updates that make AccessNow even better. We are committed to this mission, and are excited for what the future holds.


From all of us at AccessNow, we wish you a happy new year!
May 2018 be full of the most awesome accessible experiences for all.
