Phoenix Convention Center

Anonymous User

I was amazed by the servers who handled luncheons; they made it one of the most deaf-friendly experiences ever. Not once did I experience my view being blocked during the presentation, because they made sure we all had visual access. They also made sure to leave notes for us to share if we had allergies or special requests, and the menu was very visible along with displaying ingredients. This created a major reduction in communication barriers. THANK YOU for providing fabulous servers. Not only that, the staff around the facilities were also very accessible in greeting Deaf people using sign language (“Welcome,” and “thank you”).

The convention center was host to a large Deaf conference in Phoenix. They did an awesome job making the environment accessible by having their closed caption TV's turned on and by hiring an ASL interpreter at the Information desk during the duration of the conference. Their staff was so easy and friendly, often willing to gesture and write things down. The best of all was their attitude was extremely positive. I felt like an equal here.
