Wi2022 Accessibility

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version
ABA's goal is to make meetings accessible to all regardless of an attendee's visible or hidden disabilities. Let us know of accommodations we can provide to make your institute experience more accessible. All requests will be kept confidential.


At the Duke Energy Convention Center:

The DECC is compliant with all Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements. This includes having: elevators, wheelchair accessible ramps (limited inventory), restrooms, and concessions and telephones designed to accommodate the needs of those with physical and non-physical disabilities.
In all session rooms, ABA will provide seating near the front for those who need accommodation. There will also be space for those using wheelchairs. 
ABA will also provide quiet rooms for those who need a break from the noise and crowds of the conference. Please be courteous to others when utilizing the space.

Booking an ADA-Accessible Hotel Room:

All attendees planning to stay in the 2022 ABA Winter Institute block will book rooms through the Cincinnati USA Housing Bureau. (Attendees will receive an email with more information on October 6, 2021.) Requests can be made for an ADA-accessible room at the time of booking. If for some reason you are unable to book a room with the accommodations you need, let the Cincinnati USA Housing Bureau know so that it can be addressed. Do not call the hotel directly until much closer to the event; they will not have any of the booking information.
