Universal Design Summit 7

Universal Design Summit is a preeminent conference in North America, drawing experts in universal design from across the globe. UD Summit has traditionally focused on universal housing and inclusive communities. Event organizers are pleased to announce the expansion of UD Summit to include inclusive design in digital spaces.  Our current plan is to offer simultaneous virtual and in-person conferences.

UD Summit 7 will be held in May 2021 in St. Louis and attract several hundred designers, developers, builders, contractors, and architects from across the country and the globe. UD Summit 7 will provide exceptional content in the areas of affordable housing for all ages and abilities, universal design in public spaces, physical and digital community access, and universal design in digital spaces.  A pre-conference seminar will focus on ADA regulations and accessibility requirements for housing.  Continuing education credits will be offered through a variety of professional associations including AIA, IDCEC, IOTA and more.  Dozens of vendors of related products and services will be on display throughout the conference.  Opportunities abound to network with inclusive-minded professionals from varied industries.

If there is an imposing health risk to participants due to COVID-19, the event will be held virtually in the same time frame. Our current plan is to offer simultaneous virtual and in-person conferences.
