Medical Assistance Program

The entire POPSUGAR Play/Ground team is committed to making sure that all of our Fans have an amazing experience. Please take inventory of your needs as they pertain to attending the show. If you will benefit from any of the sections below, our Medical Assistance Program may be for you.

Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee any Signings, Exclusives or seating for Programming and Special Events. Please plan to arrive early and speak with one of our Staff members in each area to check availability.

Who Should Have a Medical Sticker?

POPSUGAR Play/Ground shows provide Medical Stickers to individuals who may have mobility, physical, vision, hearing, cognitive, psychological, and invisible or other types of disabilities.

For mobility-related concerns, if you answer "no" to any of the statements below or have any of the diagnosed conditions you will most likely require the assistance a medical sticker provides:

  • Are you able to move without the aid of an assistive device?
  • Are you able to walk 200 feet without stopping to rest?

Do you have any of the following diagnosed conditions?

  • Significant limitations in the lower extremities.
  • Any disease or disorder that substantially impairs mobility due to a neurological, arthritic or orthopedic condition.
  • Any cardiac condition to the extent that your functional limitations are classified as severe by the American Heart Association?
  • Any ailments that drastically restrict movement which weren't listed above.

How Do I Get a Medical Sticker?

Onsite: Please go to the Medical Assistance desk located at Registration, and one of our Staff members will be happy to assist. This sticker identifies you to Staff and Security, and indicates that you may need additional assistance. Please note that the Medical Sticker does not provide admission, you must have a valid Badge.

**Badges with Medical Assistance Stickers are for the use of one individual only throughout the course of POPSUGAR Play/Ground 2019. Badges with Medical Assistance Stickers cannot be redistributed, resold or reallocated. Failure to comply with this will result in revocation of Badge without refund and the inability to attend future Reed Exhibitions events. **

Can a Medical Sticker Be Provided To a Companion?

Fans that receive the Medical Sticker will also be provided with an additional Sticker for one companion. Please note that the Medical Sticker does not provide admission, and your companion must have a Badge. Medical Stickers do not grant early access to the Show Floor. We cannot guarantee access into Panels or Special Events or the ability to skip lines.

I Have a Hard Time Standing For Long Periods Of Time. Do You Provide Assistance For Queuing Entering The Show?

We have a dedicated queue space for those with Medical Stickers requiring special assistance or mobility requirements for arrival before show opening. Please note that this does not provide you early access into the show.

Are Service Animals Permitted Inside The Show?

Guide dogs and service animals are also welcome at the show, provided they are leashed or under similar control as appropriate and are wearing their vests.

We ask you to have a certification license for your service animal. You assume complete responsibility for your animal while at POPSUGAR Play/Ground.
