Do you know if there is handicap seating for this event? What do we have to do to get it?
A: Yes, we have handicap seating. The Duke Energy Convention Center is completely handicap accessible. Our aisles on the show floor are wide to have access for everyone. The panel rooms have ample room at the front for anyone in wheelchairs. We have panel room monitors to be sure that space is free and available for those that need them. Other patrons have chosen outside aisle seats, so they were not as close to the front.
