CIRI Reschedules Healthy Buildings Conference

September 14, 2021 CIRI Reschedules Healthy Buildings Conference

The Cleaning Industry Research Institute (CIRI) announced it has postponed its  Healthy Buildings 2021 – America conference—originally scheduled for November 9-11—to January 18-20, 2022 at the Hawaii Convention Center in Honolulu to allow for in-person attendance.

“With government restrictions temporarily limiting gatherings in the state of Hawaii, we’ve decided to delay the conference in order to remain aligned on our plan to provide an in-person experience,” said John Downey, Executive Director, CIRI. “We’re confident the new dates will allow for even greater attendance as it follows peak season for many practitioners and is an ideal time to enjoy the beauty of Hawaii.”

The theme of Healthy Buildings-America is “Bridging the Gap Between Research and Practice—In the Age of COVID-19 and Beyond.” It will feature more than 250 science-based workshops, oral and poster presentations. For the first time, this unique conference—which usually is nearly 100 percent academic research—will feature practice-based research and discussions.

With several short courses available before the event, Healthy Buildings-America will offer a variety of research-based presentations on the topics of ventilation, building maintenance, indoor chemistry, cleaning, disaster restoration, biological contamination, comfort, and health implications of indoor exposures. Contractors involved in cleaning, restoration, facility management or operations of residential or commercial buildings are invited to attend.

Early-bird registration rates are available through Nov. 1, 2021. To learn more about this conference or to register, please visit
