A Convention Center Designed With Accessible Needs in Mind
At The Edgar H. Wilson Convention Center, we leave no stone unturned to ensure a pleasant experience for guests and attendees with accessible needs.
Parking is as easy as it gets, with ample accessible parking spots available directly in front of the main entrance, and additional spots located just outside the east entrance. Please take a look at our campus map for the exact locations. To maximize ease of access, all of our event spaces are on one level, and a limited number of wheelchairs are available free of charge at the concierge desk.
