Tips and tricks for how to navigate and attend an event safely
With over 100 security cameras and a 24-hour security team, a high-functioning Command Center has always played a vital role at the MCC. The security and guest services team receive continuous training by public safety agencies and reputable safety and security training programs, ensuring top-level attendee resources, safety and experiences.
Accessible design benefits all of us at some point in our lives. The goal of MCC’s accessible design is to provide equal use of the building for all people including those who use wheelchairs, canes, mobility scooters and those with vision and hearing impairments. Specifically, the facility includes locations for easy curbside drop-off along 2nd Ave., automatic building entrances, automatic 3rd Ave. Parking Ramp doors, power assist doors, and wheelchair-accessible elevators and bathrooms.
