Accessibility at the conference venue

Sept. 3, 2014 by Jen Zajac

For those of you with limited mobility, it can be important to know in advance what the accessibility is like at the conference venue.

Our venue, the University of Otago Wellington Conference Centre, is wheelchair accessible, with lifts to both the lecture theatres located very close to the entrance to the venue. The Track 1 room has access for four wheelchairs, while the Track 2 theatre has two wheelchair access seats available.

Unfortunately there is only one mobility parking spot located immediately outside the conference venue, for those with a mobility parking permit; however we may be able to arrange that one of the parking spots designated for use by the conference organisers is also usable if needed.

If you have any concerns about accessibility at the conference, or if you would like to discuss any other ways we can help you to be able to enjoy the conference, please contact the organising team directly at
