How venues could learn from Brighton Dome about supporting people with disabilities

This weekend I had the great pleasure of attending my first BrightonSEO event - a twice-yearly gathering of the great and the good (and definitely the geeky) from the SEO and digital marketing world.

This weekend I have been thoroughly impressed by the team at the Brighton Dome - so much so that I thought I would write a blog about my experiences.  I really hope that other venues take on board some of the ways in which the Brighton Dome have approached making life that little bit easier for people with disabilities, and use this to improve their own practices.
