PRSA Storytellers: Behind the Scenes: How a World-Class Conv

When:  Feb 24, 2021
During this session, we will explore the unprecedented challenges of converting the 2.1 million-square-foot Javits Center into a fully operational field hospital with 2,000 patient units at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic in New York City. You'll hear how Sclafani and the Javits Center team, working with the Army Corps of Engineers and civilian staff and members of the New York National Guard, managed the swift transformation as the destination venue for trade shows and conventions became a fully equipped, FEMA-operated medical facility in just one week.
