At Indiana Comic Convention, we are dedicated to providing an enjoyable and rewarding experience that is safe for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity, and expression, sexual orientation, religion, marital status, veteran status, physical or mental disability, physical appearance, body size, race, national origin, age, dress, political affiliation, or fandom preference in any area, activity or operation of Indiana Comic Convention. All ADA companions are expected to purchase tickets to the event.
We offer several different ADA accommodations.
Indiana Comic Convention does not have reserved parking for the event. However, https://downtownindy.org/explore/parking is a great resource for finding handicap-accessible lots near the Convention Center.
2. ADA wristbands
We do not require documentation of disabilities, nor is a special wristband or badge required.
3. ADA Waiting Areas in Grand Ballroom and Photo Ops
Photo Ops and the Main Ballroom panels will each have an ADA waiting area, and chairs will be available for those who cannot stand too long. Please arrive at the ADA Waiting Area no more than 10 minutes before your scheduled Photo Op or Panel, as space is limited.
In the Ballroom for Panel Programming, the ADA group will be seated first. We will do our best to keep groups together; however, if space is limited, you may be asked to limit your group to just one additional person. If you are using a wheelchair, you will be assigned to one of several designated sections located throughout the Ballroom. If the panel requires a ticket to enter, the same is expected for ADA.
*Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis, so ADA seating may not be available if you wait until the last minute to get to the room.
In Photo Ops, we will keep your group together. When the celebrity or group is ready, ADA groups will be given special consideration to enter, as space permits, ahead of the General Admission crowd. After you get your Photo Op and pick up the print, you can leave the Photo Op area! If you are using a wheelchair and would like to stand for your Photo Op, you can request to have the wheelchair moved out of the picture and returned to you when the photo is complete. You may have 4 people per Photo Op. Babies under one year do not count.
In Celebrity Row for Autographs, there will be an ADA/VIP line and a general admission line. ADA attendees may bring no more than their 2 designated caregivers with them in the ADA Autograph line. Any additional people in their party will have to wait in the line designated by their Indiana CC pass; however, children will always be allowed to accompany their parents in line. If you would like to get a “selfie” with the celebrity, and they allow it, A Heroes Team member can use your phone to take a picture of you.
4. ASL Interpreters
ASL interpreters are available on-site for all the panels at the Indiana Comic Convention.
5. Wheelchair Reservation
Please feel free to reach out to https://indyscooterrental.com/event-rentals/indiana-comic-convention-mobility-scooter-rental/ for local scooter rentals.
6. Service Dogs are allowed
Only service dogs will be allowed at Convention Center. According to state and federal law, a “service animal” is any dog that is trained, or is in training, to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability, including a physical, sensory, psychiatric, intellectual, or other mental disability; and performs work or tasks, or is in training to perform work or tasks, that are directly related to the individual’s disability. Under the ADA, service animals must be harnessed, leashed, or tethered. If the dog is out of control and the handler does not effectively control it, or if the dog is not housebroken, the handler will be asked to remove the service animal from the premises.
If you experience difficulty with other service dogs or their handlers, please speak with a volunteer and ask them to contact a staff member. Our goal is to provide a safe experience for all our guests.
Emotional support animals are not allowed at this time.
