Dallas Hospitality Community to Lead Clean City Initiative

VisitDallas and the Dallas Tourism Public Improvement District (DTPID) today announced a collaborative initiative to lead the nation by becoming the first destination to receive Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) STAR™ accreditation designating Dallas hotels, the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center Dallas (KBHCCD) and selected city-owned arts and cultural institutions as sanitary and safe.

"When our residents, visitors and meeting and convention attendees are able to return and enjoy our great city, we want them to have peace of mind that Dallas is doing everything we can to create the safest and healthiest environment possible," said Craig Davis, President and CEO of VisitDallas.

To earn GBAC STAR™ accreditation, DTPID hotels, the KBCHHD, and other selected city facilities will demonstrate compliance with the program's 20 elements with specific performance and guidance criteria.
