ALA works to make sure your experience will be a pleasant and accessible one. Here are the features we have in place to ensure that the ALA 2017 Annual Confernece is accessible to all: We caption our main sessions, e.g., President’s Program, Membership Meeting, Council Meetings, and others as requested by organizers. We have accessible sleeping rooms in our hotel block. There are rooms for the deaf, blind, and attendees in wheelchairs. Please fill out the housing form and check the appropriate box. An onPeak representative will contact you to make sure you are placed in an appropriate room.
- Be sure to wear your nametag to meetings, social events, and on the conference shuttle buses – but not on the street. Always carry snacks, drinks and business cards.
- Reference the maps provided in the conference program book to find out how best to get around the convention center, exhibit floor – and to find conference hotel information.
- Take advantage of the free conference shuttles to get between events.
- Explore your interests – or – learn something new.
There are going to be approximately 15,883 Attendees and 697 Exhibitors attending. For those looking for fun things to do while in Chicago visit their visitors center website.
