Mobility Services

 

 

Special Needs and Mobility Services

Phoenix Comicon and our Volunteers are committed to making our event the most enjoyable experience for all our attendees.  For those attendees with special needs, please take a moment to review available services to help you while at the signature pop culture experience of the Southwest. 

Attendee requiring Mobility Services while at Phoenix Comicon may register for a Mobility Assistance Badge when they pick up their Membership Badge at Registration.  One additional Mobility Assistance Badge will be provided to one companion.  Those who qualify will receive the following:

  • ·        A badge identifying them as needing assistance form Phoenix Comicon Event Staff.
  • ·        Access to designated Mobility seating area where available in panels, special events and forums.

Disability Services badges do not provide:

  • ·        Early access to panels and special events
  • ·        Guaranteed access into special events, photo ops, autographs, or panels.
  • ·        The ability to skip lines

Seating Arrangement

Seating in our panels and forums are on a first come, first serve basis and we cannot guarantee seating for everyone.  We provide a limited number of seats dedicated to attendees with special needs.  You must have a Mobility Assistance Badge to access this area.

Waiting Line

All attendees, including those needing mobility services, wishing to attend a panel or forum should enter the general waiting line for that event.  We like for our attendees to arrive early and use Conquest, our event scheduling tool, to map out their events.  If your disability does not allow you to secure a place in line we suggest making arrangement with other in your party to take stand in line for you. 

Autographs

Signing sessions should be scheduled in Conquest as well to help in determining your day’s activities.  You can have a friend save a spot in line if necessary. 

Hearing Impaired

We are providing ASL signing for the hearing impaired during the Babylon 5 Guest Panel on Saturday afternoon.  No other panels are scheduled for ASL support at this time.

Service Animals

Service Animals are always welcome at the Phoenix Convention Center.  Animals are sometimes questioned if the need is not apparent, so we suggest attendees carry documentation with them for their companion.
