NAIROBI, Kenya - Feb. 17, 2020 - PRLog -- To showcase examples of best practice, and highlight those innovative digitally inclusive products already making waves, the Inclusive Africa Conference, taking place in Nairobi from 29 March - 1st April is inviting applications for short videos to be screened throughout the event.

Video submissions that cannot be exhibited at the conference are encouraged. Short presentations that showcase products, research systems, prototypes, educational methods, visions of the future, and statements of needs for a user population, product descriptions or demos, reports on ethnographic work, user studies, lab overviews, and more. The videos should share knowledge or educate or raise awareness, and not be a sales pitch.

Irene Mbari-Kirika, Executive Director and Inclusive Africa Conference Show Organizers, states: "There is a huge amount of talent here in Africa and now is the time to showcase it to the world at the Inclusive Africa Conference. What have you been working on that you are most proud of, and how does it have the potential to change a disabled person's life for the better?"
