OSBA Capital Conference health and safety planning
OSBA is planning for the Capital Conference and Trade Show to take place Nov. 7-9, 2021, at the Greater Columbus Convention Center (GCCC) and looks forward to our members convening in person this year.
As always, the health and well-being of everyone attending the Capital Conference is of utmost importance. OSBA is working diligently with our business partners, including GCCC, the city of Columbus, FERN expositions, Levy, Cardinal Transportation and all of our hotel partners, to implement the best health and safety practices possible to ensure we have a successful event where everyone feels safe while conducting business.
Proper health and safety protocols in accordance with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and state and local guidelines will be implemented at this year’s event. We are monitoring these guidelines and making changes as they are updates. These protocols will be communicated throughout the convention center and in OSBA communications. We ask all participants to adhere to these practices so that everyone can have a safe and enjoyable experience.
We are pleased to share that our partner, GCCC, managed by ASM Global, has earned the Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) STAR accreditation. GCCC has implemented the most stringent protocols for cleaning, disinfection, and infectious disease prevention in the facility. To achieve this accreditation, the GCCC demonstrated compliance with the program’s 20 core elements, which range from standard operating procedures and risk assessment strategies to personal protective equipment and emergency preparedness and response measures. You can learn more about the proactive cleaning and safety measures taken by the GCCC, and the GBAC STAR accreditation and access additional information about GCCC’s health and safety protocols.
