SAN FRANCISCO, CA — Moscone Center has successfully completed the Global Biorisk Advisory Council’s 20 GBAC STAR program elements, thereby earning GBAC STAR accreditation.
As the gold standard of prepared facilities, this accreditation designates Moscone Center as:
• Having established and maintained a cleaning, disinfection and infectious disease prevention program to minimize risks associated with infectious agents like the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2);
• Having the proper cleaning protocols, disinfection techniques and work practices in place to combat biohazards and infectious disease; and
• Having highly informed cleaning professionals on staff who are trained for outbreak and infectious disease preparation and response.
In addition, Moscone Center is implementing protocols from ASM Global’s VenueShield to continue offering the highest levels of safety, security and consumer confidence.
“I would like to congratulate General Manager Bob Sauter, along with his committed and dedicated team, for achieving and maintaining this designation for the Moscone Center. It is a highly respected achievement in the world of convention centers and one the city of San Francisco can be proud of,” said Joe D’Alessandro, President and CEO of San Francisco Travel. “The GBAC STAR accreditation and the adherence to ASM Global’s VenueShield program are vital to assuring clients, attendees and guests that Moscone Center personnel are fully trained and certified to provide a safe and healthy environment in which to conduct meetings and conventions. San Francisco is best prepared to welcome groups back to our beautiful city.”
