Access For Show Attendees With Disabilities

Marketplace Events is committed to providing individuals with disabilities an equal opportunity to participate in Marketplace Events shows, including providing equal access to the services, facilities and accommodations offered by Marketplace Events at the events.  Marketplace Events will not discriminate on the basis of disability in connection with its Show Services.

Marketplace Events will use commercially reasonable efforts to provide auxiliary aids and services at Marketplace Events shows to ensure effective communication with attendees with disabilities.  Such auxiliary aids and services may include qualified sign language interpreters, written materials, computer assisted real time transcription services (also called CART), assistive listening systems or devices, captioning, text displays or other visual aids, or other effective methods of making orally delivered information and communication accessible to deaf or hard of hearing attendees, and providing alternate format materials when an attendee cannot read standard print materials due to a disability.

Individuals with disabilities may request that auxiliary aids and services be provided at a Marketplace Events show.  Requests, preferably in writing (by letter or e-mail), should be directed to the show manager at least fourteen (14) days prior to the first day of the particular event.  The request should state the specific event, date and times of attendance, and the auxiliary aids and services requested. Marketplace Events will make commercially reasonable efforts to provide the requested auxiliary aids and services.

The content of the communication between exhibitors at Marketplace Events shows and attendees who have disabilities is the responsibility of the particular exhibitor.

Marketplace Events strives to make its show floor wheelchair accessible and will remove barriers when it is readily achievable to do so.  However, we cannot guarantee that all features at a show will be accessible.  For example, access to some landscaping features and many temporary structures (such as tree houses, playgrounds, and houses) will be limited.
