We want CON.TXT to be an accessible space for all attendees. We commit to making the entire con natively accessible and to accommodating any specific requests we receive, subject to the limitations of our resources and venue.
All con events take place on a single floor of the hotel in rooms grouped closely together. The restrooms and hotel entrance are also located on this floor.
Parking, including handicap-accessible parking, is available at the hotel; however, it is expensive. Less expensive parking spaces will be farther away and may not be handicap-accessible. There are clear sidewalks and curb-cuts between the hotel and the nearby Metro station, as well as restaurants and a shopping center.
Seating is provided for all events. Certain areas will be reserved for people using wheelchairs or other mobility devices, and chairs can be moved as needed.
People with service animals should be aware that the hotel also allows pets, so there may be untrained animals on the premises. A reminder will be given to attendees on the difference between service animals and pets.
We will offer a wide range of food during the con events and provide ingredient information. Additionally, the hotel's rooms are all equipped with kitchens (including refrigerators, stoves, and cooking equipment) at no extra cost, and there are a range of grocery services available, including delivery.
For the vid show, a list of psychological and physical triggers in the vids to be shown will be made available before the show.
We are not able to offer ASL interpretation. However, if due to your disability you require your own ASL interpreter or personal aide to be able to fully participate in CON.TXT, we will allow them to attend panels and events with you without paying a registration fee. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org about attaining a personal aide badge.
The con is not scent-free, but please be courteous to your fellow con-goers who may have sensitivities.
