In accordance with the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) and our organization’s Mission Statement, the Greater Fort Lauderdale / Broward Convention Center is committed to making our facility and services accessible to all of our clients, guests and visitors. The Convention Center offers accessible parking as well as ramp access, ADA-compliant restroom facilities, Braille elevator buttons, phone and fire alarms for the deaf and hard of hearing and more.
A limited number of wheelchairs are available at the Central Security Office at no charge on a first come-first served basis. A valid driver’s license is required to obtain the use of a wheelchair. Central Security is located on the first floor at the north end of the building. Call Central Security at 954-765-5931.
In accordance with the ADA, registered service animals are permitted in the Convention Center. The Americans with Disabilities Act defines service animals as those that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability, including a physical, sensory, psychiatric, intellectual, or other mental disability. Other animals whether wild or domestically trained or untrained (including emotional support animals, therapy animals and other pets) are not service animals and are therefore prohibited.
Special Needs Group/Special Needs at Sea is our preferred partner for equipment rentals including wheelchairs, scooters, oxygen concentrators and tanks, rollators and other equipment that would make your visit more comfortable.
Security procedures vary by event and may include a bag check or search. Event policies are subject to change and attendees should consult the event website for details.
For your safety and the safety of others, please report unusual or suspicious behavior including abandoned vehicles, unauthorized individuals, strange packages or unusual odors. Call 954-765-5931 to report security concerns or emergencies.
The Greater Fort Lauderdale / Broward Convention Center recognizes the importance of ensuring that our website is accessible to those with disabilities. We are committed to making our information accessible to visitors with disabilities and are actively working to increase the accessibility and usability of our website and in doing so adhere to many of the available standards and guidelines.
We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline. Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the Web page.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
