Accessible Booth Spaces

In order to make your booth accessible to people with disabilities, simple alterations can be made to remove or modify physical barriers and provide accessible promotional materials.

  • Set up displays to allow those using wheelchairs to easily enter the booth and view materials. This can be done by: lowering displays or counters and insuring there is ample entrance space.
  • Provide order forms or promotional materials in alternate formats such as large print or thumb drives for persons who are visually impaired.
  • Make sure carpet is smoothly laid out and that any cords are securely taped down so as not to hinder wheelchair users from accessing your booth. Please contact Nexxtshow, AAM’s general service contractor if you notice a potential hazard.
  • Videos should be captioned for persons who are hearing impaired.
  • Approach persons with disabilities with a positive, relaxed attitude in the same way you would approach any other prospective customer.
  • If attendee is deaf and with an interpreter, always address the attendee directly, not the interpreter.
  • Plan in advance how you will welcome people with disabilities into your booth.
  • If altering your display is not an option, make up in service what you lack in “architecture.”
