ABAI is committed to providing a welcoming, accessible environment for all attendees. If you require an accommodation for a disability, please contact us at accessibility@abainternational.org by Wednesday, April 1, 2020. Our team will write back to confirm, and the same email address may be used for additional questions or follow-up. We will make every effort to accommodate all requests, within the logistical limits of our venues.

 

Getting Around

ABAI makes full use of the hotel and convention center facilities, and events are spread out. There are a number of spots to sit and rest in the hallways, in large corridors outside the ballrooms, near the session rooms, and in the lobbies. If you use mobility aids, we recommend bringing them or arranging for a rental ahead of time.
