– How to have conversations with venues:
Marketing and promotion: who, how and where; is access mentioned; audience development (disabled-led orgs and community groups on social media, e-marketing and outreach); is the piece accessible
– Ticketing and booking policies: discounts and PA tickets; accessible booking and contact procedures (email, online, phone, face-to-face options)
– Spaces: is the venue accessible, and is an Access guide available?

– Other considerations:
making your own promos and marketing accessible: Alt Text, Inclusive Images, Captioning videos.
