The M-Enabling Summit is the annual conference and showcase of the Global Initiative for Inclusive Information and Communication Technologies (G3ict), held in Washington, DC, to promote accessible technologies and environments for persons with disabilities and older persons. The M-Enabling Summit has established itself as the leading global conference and showcase covering the fast-moving technology innovations that enable persons with disabilities and older persons to access digital content and services in new ways.

The demographic reality of more than one billion persons around the world living with a disability presents unprecedented accessibility challenges but also many opportunities for governments and the private sector alike.

The M-Enabling Summit offers a unique gathering of leading executives and accessibility professionals from Government, Industry, Education, and Advocacy Organizations from around the world to network and participate in plenary and specialized breakout sessions, as well as other special featured events.

Over the years, M-Enabling conferences have also been organized internationally (Europe, Russia, Australia) and virtually.
