Healthy Buildings Conference Shifts to Virtual

January 4, 2022

The Cleaning Industry Research Institute (CIRI) announced its Healthy Buildings 2021 – America conference will no longer be an in-person event and will instead be hosted virtually.

“Particularly now, as new COVID-19 variants proliferate, everyone wants a better understanding of how to keep our buildings healthy and safe,” said John Downey, CIRI executive director. “This change in plans is not totally unexpected given all the uncertainty of the past two years. We are well prepared to deliver an abundance of new research in a real-time, virtual format.”

The three-day conference, sponsored by the International Society of Indoor Air Quality and Climate (ISIAQ), will take place January 18-20. The event will include three tracks, each containing multiple 90-minute sessions organized around key themes, such as the impact of indoor air quality on health, comfort, productivity, and perception; cleaning and disinfection; ventilation; SARS-CoV-2 transmission; and more.
