The ADA, Staging, and Your Next Event

As an event planner, you manage a million details leading up to the big day. The design of your event’s staging is likely one of the last things on your mind, and justifiably so. Even further from your mind are the federal requirements and regulations that may govern your event’s staging.

If you’re hosting an event in a venue that’s open to the public, your staging needs to comply with the ADA. If you didn’t know that, we don’t judge you. It’s not your job to understand ADA event staging requirements.

But it is ours. That’s why it always pays to partner with a staging and rigging expert like MystiQue Sound Solutions. Our decades of experience in the business means we’re experts in everything from providing exceptional sound amplification to making sure your event complies with the ADA.

What are the ADA requirements for event seating and staging?

The ADA requires you to provide accessible seating at your event. This includes providing ramps, platforms, railings, and supports to accommodate audience members with limited mobility.

The ADA also requires accessible routes to a stage when the design of the stage and seating area includes a path from the seating, to the stage, and back again. An example of this would be the stage of your kid’s high school graduation ceremony. It also requires an accessible route to connect the accessible seating and the stage.

Where do I rent ADA-compliant staging equipment?
