This venue covers multiple levels, all of which are accessibly by elevator. Additionally, there are ramps in certain areas. However, there are multiple entrances, so it is important for anyone with mobility issues to be aware that only the main entrance offers full access, there is a staircase if you use other entrances, for instance, the entrance leading in from the food court. The event team can also guide you to the right entrance.

Please use Entrance 1.
