IEG obtains the GBAC STAR TM seal for hygiene and safety standards
An additional certificate to ensure the health of exhibitors, visitors, employees and stakeholders. IEG - Italian Exhibition Group completes the GBAC STAR TM accreditation process, the global certification program of practices, procedures and work systems suitable to meet the international standards of cleaning, sanitation and prevention of infectious risks for environments and personnel promoted by the Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC).
An accreditation that sees IEG alongside internationally famous locations, including the terminals at Pittsburgh International Airport and the Red Bull Arena in Harrison, New Jersey, the home of the New York Red Bulls soccer team – a competitor in the MLS - and Kyoto International Conference Center.
The first Italian company to adhere to and activate – in July 2020 - a health safety accreditation process based on controllable and measurable scientific standards, IEG has achieved the objective by becoming the first Italian trade show and conference organizer to obtain this result and recognition, thus consolidating its daily commitment and the validity of the operations adopted at its administrative and operational headquarters at the Expo Centers in Rimini and Vicenza, at the Palacongressi Conference Center in Rimini and at VICC - Vicenza Convention Center.
"The GBAC STAR TM accreditation process began in the wake of the great maneuvers inaugurated last year with the protocol #Safebusiness by IEG" - said the CEO of Italian Exhibition Group, Corrado Peraboni. “A mission that targeted a precise direction: to guarantee all our public with vital health prevention levels throughout their visit. A commitment that those who participated in our trade show and conference events in Rimini and Vicenza between summer and autumn 2020 were well able to see. The measures and procedures put into practice guarantee extremely safe experiences from the point of view of health. "
"GBAC STAR TM training has allowed us to implement cutting-edge and highly efficient sanitization systems and internal procedures,” – said, Mario Vescovo, Director of Operations at IEG’s Vicenza premises who coordinated the process. “This certification means that we can activate audit and control systems for training and responsibilizing management and employees, for cleaning and disposal procedures, for the use of the most suitable equipment, devices and products for each situation. A decisive and essential sign for the safety of all our present and future stakeholders.”
