Pennsylvania

AMERICAS - The Pennsylvania Convention Center (PCC) Authority has partnered with Scootaround to offer scooter and wheelchair rentals to its customers.

The rentals are part of a package of amenities designed to facilitate the mobility of conference and meeting attendees around the 92,000sqm of the centre.

"This is a major advancement in our overall mission to enhance the experience of our customers while visiting the centre," said President and CEO of the PCC, Ahmeenah Young. "This agreement gives our exhibitors, event organisers and visitors the ability to save time and to avoid last minute logistical issues that can arise during a convention, meeting or special event."

In order to guarantee a scooter or wheelchair, customers are encouraged to make reservations at least 72 hours in advance of the event. 'Day of' rentals can also be arranged at the FedEx Office located inside the second level of the convention centre near 12th and Arch Streets.
