The next webinar in the U.S. Access Board’s free monthly series will take place June 3 from 2:30 – 4:00 (ET) and will review the scoping and technical requirements for assembly areas in the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Architectural Barriers Act (ABA) Accessibility Standards. These requirements apply to movie theatres, lecture halls, grandstands, performing arts centers, stadiums, arenas, and other assembly areas. Access Board Accessibility Specialists will discuss provisions for wheelchair spaces, companion seats, accessible routes, designated aisle seats, bleacher seating, assistive listening systems, and press boxes. Presenters will also cover frequently asked questions and common sources of confusion with assembly areas.
