The Columbus Georgia Convention & Trade Center, also known as the Iron Works, designed a flexible plan that coincides with following healthy best practices, including more hand sanitizer stations for all entrances to major event spaces and food serving areas, enhanced signage to promote appropriate social distancing, and a trained team upholding the new standards. Along with increased safety measures, the Trade Center has three different packages to accommodate planners' budgets and needs for their meeting and event at the facility.
