We want to make Magazine Street as accessible as possible to as many different people as possible. Should your needs not be covered here, we warmly encourage you to contact us with any queries.

Accessibility

Wheelchair access Assembly Roxy’s main auditorium, where the majority of talks will happen, is accessible by wheelchair via a ramp from the pavement. There is a disabled toilet on the ground floor just off the main auditorium. On-street parking is available outside the venue – if you have a Blue Badge you can park free of charge and without a time limit in Edinburgh.

Nearest pharmacist The nearest pharmacist is the Southside Pharmacy at 79-81 Nicolson St, Newington, Edinburgh EH8 9BZ, four minutes’ walk from Assembly Roxy.

Hearing loop We can provide a hearing loop if required as all speakers will use a microphone. Please email us if you would like us to provide this.

Quiet area We have assigned a designated quiet area for anyone who needs to take time away from the bustle of the conference.

Asking questions If you’d like to ask a question to one of our speakers but don’t feel comfortable raising your hand, we welcome questions over on Twitter using #MagStreet. Paper and pen will be included in delegate bags, or if you’d prefer to ask a question of one of our speakers in advance, we invite you to email it to us.

Dietary requirements We can cater to all dietary requirements and will provide vegetarian and vegan options as a matter of course. Please let us know if you’d like anything specific, or if you prefer to bring your own lunch, we can refrigerate this.

Online offering This year the event will be in-person only, but we’re currently looking for partners to help support us to deliver a hybrid event in the future. All the main-stage talks, however, will be recorded and sent to delegates, so you can watch them on-demand afterward.

If there’s anything here that you’d like more information on, or if you have an accessibility issue that we haven’t covered, we warmly invite you to contact us.
