Dear Ms. Treviranus,

With “Accessible Europe” coming up in the coming weeks, and given that you are a speaker with a strong network of accessibility related projects and stakeholders for which our regional forum might be of interest – I wanted to reach out to see if you would like to submit and/or help us promote the Call for Submissions for our Innovative Digital Solutions Competition to prospective participants in your network and community. And in the same spirit potentially extend our invitation to interested stakeholder to join the Accessible Europe Forum in Vienna for discussions among key players in the European Region, and our exhibition space for accessibility solutions. The forum is free to participate, and requires registration only – via  www.itu.int/go/AccessibleEurope2018<http://www.itu.int/go/AccessibleEurope2018>.

Your support and spreading the word to your community would be much appreciated!
Please let me know if you would like to discuss this further in detail.

You could help us communicate the event by relaying the information to your network, via email, newsletter, and social media.
Below the concise information about the competition and attached the longer competition brief which is also available on our website.
Please find at the end of this email sample tweets, as well as images to use to promote it. In case you would like to draft an email together with us please let me know!
