Introduction to the Accessible Cities Demo Page
ENAT aims to support Europe's accessible cities by publishing Accessible City profiles on the ENAT website.
Here, cities can promote themselves in their own profile page.
This service is offered only to cities that join ENAT (annual fee €150 per year).
Publish your accessible city profile in a dedicated ENAT page and enhance your on-line reputation as a city that values and practices good accessibility!
About 3,500 new visitors come to the ENAT website every month to learn about accessible tourism. On average they stay about 2.5 minutes and browse 3 pages or more. And many visitors stay much longer.
Most of ENAT's site visitors are specialists in tourism and accessibility. They are interested in improving their own practices and developing Business-to-Business relationships. We know this from the extensive correspondence we receive via the website.
The content of the page shown below is an example of what you can publish to promote your accessible city on the ENAT website.
As an ENAT Member, you can upload information about your City or a Network of Cities to a dedicated page like this one, using our Content Management System. No additional software is required. For more complex pages, authors can send material by email to the web editor.
Using a simple template, you create a page title, such as the name of your city, then add text, banners, photos, videos, file attachments, links back to your own Home Page, et cetera.
NOTE: Your city page on the ENAT website will have a shortened, personalised URL, for example:
www.accessibletourism.org/citydemopage (where the name of your city follows the forward slash).
The short URL associates your city's name directly with ENAT's home page, making it more visible and easy to remember.
Being a member of ENAT, your Accessible City page will connect with the ENAT brand and help you strengthen your communication with general and specialist readers alike.
Your page will remain "live" as long as you want to keep it online, and you may update it at any time.
ENAT will promote the Accessible Cities profiles throughout the year, both via the web, in printed publications and at International events.
ENAT web editors will provide layout, editing and English grammar checks to make sure your page is clear and accurate.
Web Accessibility for All
Like the rest of the ENAT website, your Accessible City profile page will be accessible to web users who have a disability, (WAI - Level A compliant).
Note that every page of the ENAT Website has the Google Translate feature. This simple mechanism allows your English language web page to be instantly translated to 50+ languages, reaching a worldwide audience.
Read the text below, as an example of what you can add to your page.
