Corvin Plaza and Kaposvár Plaza, both part of Indotek Group's retail portfolio, have received accessibility certification from Access4you.
The shopping centers, located in District VIII of Budapest and Kaposvár, respectively, provide an accessible environment for several special needs groups according to Access4you.
As a result of the certification, reliable accessibility information is available for both plazas, so that visitors with special needs, including disabilities, can find out in advance about the accessibility features of the plazas.
Access4you's accessibility experts carried out the audit in Corvin Plaza in September 2021, and another accessibility audit was carried out in Kaposvár Plaza, which was renovated last fall, in February this year. Both malls were found to be accessible to visitors in wheelchairs and with reduced mobility, the elderly, visitors with pushchairs, and visitors with cognitive disabilities. The information collected is available in a database accessible to all on the Access4you website and app.
The areas assessed by Access4you include accessibility, entrance, external and internal environment, parameters of doors, lifts and stairs and ramps, specific features of the equipment, and the existence of facilities and services to support barrier-free use.
"There are 1.5 million people with special needs living in Hungary today, so as a responsible large company, accessibility in various properties, including shopping centers, is a fundamental objective for the Indotek Group. Access4you helps us to contribute to social equality, equal access to services and a life and experience without barriers," said Marcell Pintyőke, marketing manager of Indotek Group, about the Access4you certification.
Indotek Group, which operates a total of 38 shopping centers at home and abroad, aims to include more plazas in the Access4you certification in the future, the press release says.
