Accessibility and On-Site Services

We're dedicated to providing a welcoming, respectful, safe, and accessible environment for all attendees

Accessibility

Esri complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and endeavors to ensure that all contracted (Esri-sponsored) spaces comply with accessibility standards. For our attendees requiring accessibility accommodations, we are pleased to provide a dedicated on-site contact. Please reach out to our accessibility team before the summit for more information.

American Sign Language (ASL) interpreters are available at the summit. Attendees who need the services of an ASL interpreter are asked to email their request, including their schedule needs, to confregis@esri.com.

Service animals (as defined by ADA standards) are welcome at the summit. Service animals are defined as dogs that are "individually trained to do work or perform tasks for an individual with a disability.” Please reach out to the Esri accessibility team if you have any special requirements.

Summit attendees needing first aid during event hours should visit the First Aid Desk, located in the Primrose Lobby.

For life-threatening emergencies, call 911 immediately from any available phone or cell phone, then notify security staff of the location so they can quickly direct first responders.

Inclusion

Our conference fosters an environment where collaboration can thrive, innovation is abundant and encouraged, and all attendees are provided with the opportunity to learn and grow.

We are dedicated to a sustainable planet, investing in solutions that help protect the earth and advocate for its care. Please reach out to our sustainability team with any questions.

  • We work to reduce the carbon footprint for our events. We use fully recyclable materials, made from postconsumer waste fibers, for our signage instead of the traditional foam core boards.
  • We are moving toward zero plastics for food and beverage options.

Frequently asked questions

For the safety and security of all involved, all summit sessions, tracks, and exhibits are for registered attendees only, unless otherwise noted. All registered summit attendees must be at least 18 years of age (see information below for attendees traveling with infants).

Infants (children under two years of age) may accompany registered attendees into the Expo as well as event sessions, workshops, and other activities if the infant is in a carrier and supervised at all times. If an infant begins to fuss or creates a distraction for others, the adult attendee should step out to attend to the infant (please see the Esri Code of Conduct for Conferences and Community Spaces).

Exceptions may apply, so we request that attendees reach out and discuss individual needs with the Esri accessibility team.

Inappropriate behavior will not be tolerated. If you witness or are subjected to inappropriate behavior or have any other concerns, notify an Esri staff member at our Registration Desk as soon as possible. Appropriate action will be taken to ensure that the event maintains a safe and constructive environment for everyone—free of harassment, aggression, and intimidation.

The consequences of such behavior may include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Immediate removal from a session or meeting
  • Restricted access to future Esri events
  • Denial of attendance to future Esri events

Esri reserves the right to take any or all these disciplinary actions as deemed necessary for all events. We ask that all Esri staff and event attendees be mindful of the Esri Code of Conduct for Conferences and Community Spaces during the summit.
