Fans that receive the medical sticker will also be provided with an additional sticker for one companion. Please note that the medical sticker does not provide admission, and your companion must have a badge. Medical stickers do not grant early access to the show floor. We cannot guarantee access into panels and special events or the ability to skip lines.
We have a dedicated queue space and for those with medical sticker requiring special assistance or mobility requirements for arrival before show opening. Please note that this does not provide you early access into the show.
We provide priority seating for medical stickers as available, please be aware that all seating for panels are on a first-come, first-served basis and we cannot guarantee seating for everyone.
An attendee with a medical sticker should plan to arrive to a panel at least 15 minutes prior to the event.
Keep in mind that all of our events are very popular and we want to make sure that you get to see what panel is important to you, so plan accordingly.
Please be aware that based on design, many tiny houses are not handicap accessible. We have asked the builders to provide materials with images of their house’s interior so that they can still be viewed. In addition, there will be a park model in the outdoor village that will be accessible via a ramp.
The Arlington Convention Center is fully accessible and handicap parking is also available onsite.
Wheelchairs, power scooters, and other mobility equipment can be rented through Arlington HomeCare. You must reserve them in advance. Please call 817-261-2536 and ask for Terry Traner or Cyndi Smith. Equipment can be picked up onsite at the event during show hours at the Arlington HomeCare table in the lobby. Learn more here.
If you would like to request an interpreter, please contact us with your personal information (Name, preferred e-mail, phone number) at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be in touch with you to arrange your ideal schedule. We can accommodate requests up to three weeks before the event, please email us before October 6, 2017. Because of demand for interpreters, we cannot guarantee to accommodate your request after that time. Onsite requests for interpreters cannot be facilitated.
Guide dogs and service animals are also welcome at the show, provided they are harnessed, leashed, or tethered, unless these devices interfere with the service animal’s work or the individual’s disability prevents using these devices. If that is the case, we require you to maintain control of the animal through voice, signal, or other effective controls.
Poisonous, venomous, and predatory creatures are not allowed, including snakes. Neither are animals too big to be held, such as standard-sized horses.
