Disability Services

 

Tokyo in Tulsa supports equal-access and provides on-site assistance for anyone who has a disability. Please be sure to stop by the Disability Services table at the Information Desk if you need any assistance.

 

Tokyo in Tulsa seeks to do its utmost to provide equal access to its participants with disabilities in accordance with State and Federal Law. Due to the conventions limited resources, convention staff may be required to discuss your reasonable accommodation with you in order to attempt to meet your needs. Seating is limited, and is available on a first come, first serve basis. We ask that you be cooperative, and be early for events you would like to see.

 

We offer a variety of services to help you enjoy your Tokyo in Tulsa experience, including:

 

  • Convention schedule in large print available in an electronic version on the website
  • Sign Language interpreters upon request.
  • Staff working all areas of Tokyo in Tulsa programming in both the Cox Business Center and Doubletree Hotel, making them accessible for people with disabilities.
  • Registration options for people who, due to the nature of their impairment, cannot maneuver the tight turns or long lines.

 

We offer stickers for badges, based on seating requirements:

 

  • Wheelchair Seating; for our friends in wheelchairs, of course.
  • Chair in Line / End of Row Accommodations; for our friends with mobility impairments.
  • Proximity / 50 ft. to Screen; for visual/lip-reading access.
  • Sight lines; for access to the interpreter, safe space for working animals, and other unique situations.

 

Look for the Disability Services at the Information Desk.

 

One important thing to remember: we will do our best to make sure events are accessible to you, but that does not mean we guarantee you a front row seat, or head of the line privileges. If you are going to a very popular event, you must get there extra early to get a good seat, just like everyone else. The accessible seating may not be in the front row. We follow the guidelines of the Americans with Disabilities Act, which specifies the number and arrangement required for accessible seating. If you arrive late, or in some cases even "on time" for an event, you may not get the seat you would prefer, and in some cases you may not be able to get in at all.

 

While staff will always do their best to make accommodations, once *General Loading* begins in a room, disability seating is NOT guaranteed.

 

**Qualification for services does not guarantee availability of seating.

 

People who think they will need assistance at the convention can contact Disability Services in advance.  We are available via email at disabilityservices@tokyointulsa.com.

 

Tokyo in Tulsa covers multiple floors in separate buildings. We strongly suggest that if an individual has difficulty walking long distances that they consider renting an electric scooter.
