Georgia Relay announced it will attend and exhibit at the American Sign Language (ASL) Expo in Atlanta on Saturday, Oct. 20.
The event, to be held at the Georgia International Convention Center between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m., is free to the public and will include exhibitions, entertainment and seminars, as well as activities for children.
The ASL Expo tours 10 American cities annually, bringing a mix of entertainment, education and attractions to the deaf, hard-of-hearing and hearing communities alike.
Deaf and hard-of-hearing Expo attendees will be able to learn about the latest technologies, new services that can provide assistance in both their personal and professional life and the history and evolution of ASL. Hearing people can begin to learn sign language, how to become an interpreter and how their businesses can improve communication with deaf customers.
In addition, there are numerous presentations, workshops and seminars on a wide variety of topics, ranging from finances and education to products and services.
The day’s entertainment includes magicians and comedians (who tell jokes in American Sign Language).
