The Americans with Disabilities (ADA) National Network has published this Planning guide to provide information to assist planners, managers, operators and building owners in making temporary events such as conferences, sporting events and other temporary venues accessible to people with disabilities.

This guide acquaints the reader with:

  • The value of making temporary events accessible.
  • An overview of the law.
  • Planning strategies to help prevent discrimination.
  • Typical barriers encountered by people with disabilities and solutions for removal.
  • Methods of locating and coordinating available resources to achieve accessibility.

This guide addresses most questions about how to host an accessible temporary event. For more information or to ask a question, please call the ADA National Network at their toll free number - 1-800-949-4232.
