“We appreciate the expertise provided by the world-class team of experts we have assembled. We look forward to growing the VenueShield program with our partners at AECOM, SERVPRO and Drexel University College of Medicine as we continue to reopen across the globe.”

It is designed to provide an evolving approach to the unique aspects surrounding each of ASM Global’s facilities and guided by consistent input from the company’s venue experts around the world representing every venue type.
