ADA Assistance Program

Emerald City Comic Con is welcoming to individuals of all abilities, and is a fully accessible event. We are dedicated to continually improving our efforts to ensure full access and we encourage all feedback and suggestions in order to improve your experience.

The following explains all accommodations provided this year. For any accessibility-related questions, please email us at adaeccc@reedpop.com. We will do our very best to help you have an epic experience.

ADA Entrances

There is an ADA dedicated entrance at Convention Place and Union Street that will be available all day during each show day.

ADA CREDENTIALS

ReedPOP provides ADA stickers to individuals who may have mobility, physical, vision, hearing, cognitive, psychological, or any other type of disabilities that may not be visible. An ADA sticker identifies you to Staff, Crew, and Security and indicates that you may need additional assistance.

Please note that the ADA sticker does not provide admission, you must have a valid badge.

**ADA stickers are for the use of one individual only throughout the course of Emerald City Comic Con 2020.  ADA stickers cannot be redistributed, resold or reallocated. Failure to comply with this will result in revocation of your badge without refund and the inability to attend future ReedPOP events.**

We provide priority seating for fans with disabilities as available. All seating for panels and screenings are on a first come, first served basis and we cannot guarantee seating for everyone.

Guests with disabilities should plan to arrive to a panel at least 30 minutes prior to the event so that we can best accommodate you. Keep in mind that all of our events are very popular and we will make every effort to help you access the panels that are important to you.

In that case, the individual must maintain control of the animal through voice, signal, or other effective controls.
