Assess Your Convention Center Accessibility

PCMA Convening Leaders 2023 Convention


They said, let's do a tour instead of you speaking on stage. Let's let you walk through here and see what I see from my perspective.

If any of you have convention centers or facilities that you're looking at for venues, why not bring a wheelchair and experience it from the aspect of a person with a mobility disability. And see if you can borrow a wheelchair, have someone with you because it's not easy. We don't want any catastrophes where you're flipping out and hurting yourself. So have somebody there with you.

But what a better experiential learning. This is experiential learning, but it's so much more valuable if you have the ability to be in a manual wheelchair if you're so inclined. So that was how I ended up at Experience Columbus. I then interviewed the Convention Center management. I also went to the Greater Columbus Convention Center. That's what the official name is to their website. On the accessibility page. How many of your convention centers have an accessibility page where you show what's going on in this convention center? And we're going to see it here today.
