CON NEWS: (Re)Gen 4 Unveils Access Services Department

Meredith Peruzzi with (Re)Gen 2 guest Anneke Wills

Here at Onezumi Events, we are dedicated to providing a fun, comfortable, and safe experience for all our attendees, regardless of needs. Our previous events have included accessible seating and ASL interpreter “check-out” for attendees.

This year, we are proud to announce that (Re)Generation Who 4 will usher in the opening of our new dedicated Access Services Department, headed up by long-time staffer Meredith Peruzzi.

Peruzzi has been working as an interpreter in the East Coast con scene for 15 years, and has worked with the Deaf community for her entire life. As a museum director at Gallaudet University, she has had opportunities to learn new solutions for accommodation issues of all types. She’s also happy to listen — both to professionals in the field and to the people for whom accommodation is provided — to explore new ideas as necessary.

The new Access Department will continue to supply ASL interpreters as ever. But Peruzzi’s extra focus means the beginning of some new initiatives: “seat in line” options for those who cannot stand for long periods, designated seating for those with low vision, and special seating for those requiring mobility devices.

Of her new job, Peruzzi says: “I am committed to providing access that goes beyond the ADA and into providing a truly wonderful experience for our attendees.”

If you are an attendee and would like to request assistance from our Access Services Department for this year’s con, please email assistance@regenerationwho.com


Still on the fence about coming to this year’s event? Time is running out to preregister — and with big guests like Peter Capaldi, Michelle Gomez, and Rachel Talalay, we may fill the venue this year! Register now for single day or full weekend membership — and add on VIP tiers, autographs, photo ops, and more in advance!
