Combating COVID at Trade Show and Event Facilities with ISSA’s GBAC STAR Program

The Global BioRisk Advisory Council (GBAC) today officially launched GBAC STAR, an accreditation program that assesses cleaning and disinfection practices and infectious-disease prevention.

Hyatt Hotels Corp., McCormick Place, the Las Vegas Convention Center, United Service Companies (TSE’s parent company), the Orange County Convention Center and Hard Rock Stadium (home to the NFL’s Miami Dolphins) are among the many companies and venues that have already registered for GBAC STAR certification.

The GBAC STAR program assesses a facility’s preparedness, making it ideal for facilities like restaurants, hotels, airports, convention centers, stadiums, and other public venues. And it provides staff with training for bio-risk prevention and containment. The program also establishes a framework for communication and awareness of best practices.
