New England's largest and most diverse science fiction and fantasy convention
January 16-19, 2015

Access Updates

Arisia has a number of things in place to support attendees with disabilities at the convention.

We will be marking the back of badges again this year for people who cannot stand for long periods of time who need to bypass lines, or for people who need seats at the front of large events, due to mobility, vision or hearing. See the information desk in the lobby. We will also have parking spaces for wheelchairs and scooters in all panel and event rooms.

We will once again have a quiet room, to rest and take respite from the noise and chaos of the convention, in room 401.

We will have alternative format publications. Braille, large format, and electronic text versions can be picked up at the information desk (the Souvenir book is available as e-text with image descriptions by request). KonOpas, the online app for the Arisia schedule has been tested and is screen reader compatible, if you want to set up your schedule on a device before con. (Thanks to Worldcon, who found someone to test it).

Attendees bringing Personal Care Assistants may ask for a free membership for that person. email for details
