The app will be a great tool to stay organized and enhance your conference experience! Download links to come!
Audio Guide: We are very excited to announce that the National ADA Symposium has been selected as the pilot for this new technology. Conference attendees will be able to more easily navigate meeting venues without depending upon sighted human guides. Location information will be transmitted by electronic beacons placed at registration tables, concession areas, exhibit areas, meeting rooms, restrooms, escalators, and elevators. An application specially-designed by Indoo.rs will then identify the locations vocally through an idevice or Android phone. The system will be customized to the specific services of the host organizations.
Assistive Technology Room: See and experience some of the latest and greatest examples of assistive technology available today.
Vendors: We currently have 34 vendors registered (only 4 spots left!) Go to www.adasymposium.org and scroll down the page to see a list and links to all of our sponsors and vendors.
ADA Timeline: See a timeline display of the events from the past 30 years and add your name to the display.
Give Aways: All attendees have a chance to win random door prizes. Plus, through our "Vendor Exploration Cards" one lucky person will win a FREE registration to the next National ADA Symposium in 2016!
Overflow Hotel Rooms: An overflow hotel has been secured with additional rooms (including ADA Accessible rooms) at the same $139 rate. Reservation information will be added to our website SOON!
