Welcome to Opal Group’s Clean Facilities & Operations Summit Virtual Series IV

Turning Ideas into Actions

Interactive and Collaborative Spaces to Discuss Occupying Shared Spaces & Our Return to Normalcy

One year ago, our country went on pause as we tried to figure out how to manage all aspects for life due to COVID-19. As we learned more about the spread of the virus, we were able to reopen facilities in a safe manner. As improved testing, more therapies and vaccines become available, we are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel so we can return to normal. In the meantime, we are tasked with maintaining health and safety of those sharing our spaces.

What will happen within the next year is still to be seen, but our everyday lives have changed forever. We will continue to see signage reminding us to keep our distance. PPE will still be worn by many. And touchless everything will be the norm in many facilities.

The Clean Facilities & Operations Summit is a virtual conference focused on the operations of facilities, maintaining cleanliness, and preserving the health and safety of staff and guests. The conversation will continue to change how organizations and communities continue to reinvent and adapt as well as share ideas and learn from each other to plan for what’s next.

Opportunities to Learn, Share, Collaborate & Unite During Crisis
Our goal is to deliver an experience that is engaging and highly participatory through a series of virtual summits focused around the safe operations within shared spaces. We are providing a platform to join your facility peers from different industries to share your stories and collaborate in creative problem-solving to tackle issues.
