- Advice on hosting disabled-friendly events (for organizers) such as information about accessibility requirements for venues and details on the Americans with Disabilities Act (e.g. disabled seating requirements in a 500-seat venue: 1% of the total capacity, plus 1 seat).
- Examples of some of the most accessible venues in the world, including Madison Square Garden which provides assisted listening devices to all attendees in the Hulu theater.
- Useful tips and advice such as how to prepare for the event, finding nearby accommodation, and other practical advice for attendees with special accessibility needs.
