Accessibility and Inclusivity

At Daisho Con, we strive to make our events inclusive and accessible for all of our attendees.  While our accessibility program is in its infancy, we hope to make Daisho Con an improved experience each year for our attendees that may require additional accommodations.  Although we can’t remove every barrier at Daisho Con, we will do our best to provide accommodations within the limitations of the convention center, finances, and staffing.  We would love to hear any questions or comments you may have at accessibility@daishocon.com.

Accessibility Information at Daisho Con

Your main hub of information for accessibility services during Con weekend will be located in the Daisho Con Control Room (Empress Room).  Our trained staff will be available to answer your questions and provide additional informational resources throughout the weekend.  The Daisho Con Control Room will be staffed at all hours of the convention for your convenience.

+Advanced Seating/ Seating Assistance

  • Main Programming events will allow for advance seating for our attendees needing additional time.  Please arrive at least 15 minutes early and inform Daisho Con staff.  Plan appropriately for popular events as seating may be limited.  Advanced seating/Seating assistance does not guarantee admission to all events or special access.
  • Due to scheduling limitations, advance seating may not be an option outside of Main Programming.  If you would like seating assistance for events outside of Main Programming, you may request in advance at the Control Room or ask a Daisho Con staff member to assist you.

+Optional Service Animal Badging

Working service animals (as defined by ADA) and emotional support animals may receive optional service animal badge at the Control Room.

  • Service animals (as defined by ADA) and Emotional support animals may be requested to be removed from the convention space if :(1) the animal is out of control and the handler does not take effective action to control it or (2) the animal is not housebroken.  Service animals and Emotional Support animals must be harnessed, leashed, or tethered.  Service animals may be exempt if these devices interfere with the service work or the individual’s disability prevents using these devices. In that case, the individual must maintain control of the animal through voice, signal, or other effective controls.  The Kalahari Convention Center and Resort may request emotional support animals to be removed from the premise for any reason and supersedes Daisho Con on this matter.
  • Service animals (as defined by ADA) and emotional support animals may not be incorporated into cosplays.  This is to reduce confusion for working animals, their handlers, staff, and attendees.  
  • Pets are not allowed in the convention space.

Potential Barriers

While we would like to make every aspect of Daisho Con fully accessible for all attendees, we are unable to remove all barriers at this time due to financial, logistical, and staffing limitations.  For your convenience we have compiled a list of potential barriers that may exist at Daisho Con.
