Duke Energy Convention Center to continue its GBAC STAR™ accredited cleaning and hygiene program
Duke Energy Convention Center became the first Ohio facility to achieve Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) STAR™ Accreditation Aug. 19, 2020.  

Under the guidance of GBAC, a Division of ISSA, the worldwide cleaning industry association, the venue has implemented the most stringent protocols for cleaning, disinfection and infectious disease prevention in its facility.

As the cleaning industry’s only outbreak prevention, response and recovery accreditation, GBAC STAR™ helps organizations establish protocols and procedures, offers expert-led training and assesses a facility’s readiness for biorisk situations. The program verifies that Duke Energy Convention Center implements best practices to prepare for, respond to and recover from outbreaks and pandemics.

Duke Energy Convention Center honored as one of EXHIBITOR Magazine’s 30 2021 Centers of Excellence

Our Auto Expo partners at Duke Energy Convention Center have been recognized as one of EXHIBITOR Magazine’s 30 best North American convention centers for trade shows and events.

The myriad criteria considered were categorized into five primary areas:
  • Facility & Functionality
  • Location & Accommodations
  • Service & Execution
  • Expansions & Upgrades
  • Awards & Industry Participation

The evaluation process also included a survey of event planners, show organizers, and exhibit managers who have recently hosted (or exhibited at) events within each facility, as well as a review of entrants’ event spaces, selling points, and innovations, conducted by a panel of corporate exhibit managers.
