Mark Adams Presenting on Enhancing Airport Wayfinding for ACC Institute Webinar
On Thursday, January 18th, 1:00-2:30 pm, Mark Adams, RCDD/NTS, will present “Enhancing Airport Wayfinding for Aging Travelers and Persons with Disabilities” for the Airport Consultants Council (ACC) Institute. The online training program will be led by Mark and James R. Harding, Jr., SEGD, Principal at Gresham, Smith and Partners.
Independent travel in airports for aging travelers and passengers with disabilities such as low vision/blindness, mobility limitations, or problems with short-term memory, presents complex navigational challenges that are not met by standard approaches to wayfinding and signage. This ACC Institute online training program will cover the who, what, why and how to help aging travelers and persons with disabilities travel independently within airports using technology and pedestrian wayfinding systems. This program will reference the latest research published in October 2017 from the “ACRP Research Report 177: Enhancing Airport Wayfinding for Aging Travelers and Persons with Disabilities.”
