Assembly Areas

June 03, 2021 Presented on: June 03, 2021

It is important to properly integrate accessibility into the design of assembly areas, including movie theatres, lecture halls, grandstands, performing arts centers, stadiums, and arenas. This webinar will review the scoping and technical requirements for assembly areas in the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Architectural Barriers Act (ABA) Accessibility Standards. Presenters will discuss provisions for wheelchair spaces, companion seats, accessible routes, designated aisle seats, bleacher seating, assistive listening systems, and press boxes. Presenters will also cover frequently asked questions and common sources of confusion. This webinar will include video remote interpreting (VRI) and real-time captioning. Questions can be submitted in advance of the session or can be posed during the live webinar. Webinar attendees can earn continuing education credits.
