Accessibility

KuroNekoCon desires to foster a positive and encouraging environment where all attendees can enjoy a safe, fun, and memorable event. KNC staff work with convention center staff and attendee members to ensure that the convention accommodates those with disabilities, or to those in need of access to accommodating amenities.

Facility Accommodations

The Spokane Convention Center offers many features that make their facility friendly to guests with disabilities. These features include accessible parking, automatic entrance doors, wheelchair accessible elevators, and accessible restrooms. Elevators and accessible restrooms are indicated on the the Convention Map.

If issues arise during the convention, such as non-handicap vehicles in handicap designated parking spaces or handicap bathrooms being used for changing costumes,, please notify convention center security immediately.

Care Givers

KuroNekoCon provides complementary membership to certified caregivers who are attending KuroNekoCon in order to assist another attendee member. Please contact accessibility@kuronekocon.com before the event in order to register as a caregiver, you will then be sent instructions for badge pickup.
Please bring your ID and a caregiver badge (or other form of work verification) when picking up your badge.

Express Access

Individuals who need express access to the front of lines or priority seating in events due to a disability or visible ailment (broken leg, etc.) should speak with the staff member managing the line. Staff can also bring chairs in order to sit in the line if requested.

  • For Registration: For express access to the front of registration lines, we ask that a disability card/band or obvious ailment (broken leg, wheel chair, etc.) be presented to a staff member. At that time we can move the attendee and their attending adult or caregiver (if applicable) towards the front of the registration line.
  • For Convention Events (Events held in the conference theater, main events, and Tsuki’s Coliseum): Please speak with the staff member managing the event line. Early seating may occur no earlier than the beginning of setup for the event.
  • For Fan and Industry Panels: Please speak with the staff member managing the panel line. Early seating may occur only after the staff member receives consent from the panel host.

 

Service Animals

Service animals as defined by Washington State law are allowed in the convention space. Washington state law defines a service animal as any dog or miniature horse that is individually trained 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. Non-Service animals are not permitted.

Gender Neutral Bathrooms
