ADA Greeters are members of the SMG Guest Services Staff who are specifically designated to assist guests with disabilities and their companions during major Smoothie King Center events. They can be identified by vests and bright blue badges with an ADA wheelchair icon. Because they are actively assisting patrons during events, ADA Greeters move throughout the venue. Patrons who need help locating an ADA Greeter can ask any Guest Services Representative for assistance.
