The Javits Center has reopened for events, and we are looking forward to being a part of New York’s economic resurgence. Our staff is working closely with our clients, government partners and industry stakeholders to ensure operations are as safe, efficient and effective as possible.

Proof of a COVID-19 vaccination is required for admission for all events at the Javits Center. This includes all event organizers, contractors, exhibitors and attendees, who will be required to show proof of vaccination in order to enter the convention center. In accordance with New York State and New York City guidelines for large-scale indoor events, individuals ages 12 and older are required to show proof they have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine authorized for emergency use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or World Health Organization (WHO). The Javits Center also requires all visitors to wear face coverings inside the facility regardless of vaccination status.

Please make sure to check each event’s website for further details. If you have any questions regarding events, please contact our Sales and Marketing Department.

Moving Forward


In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Javits Center was temporarily transformed into what some called the largest hospital in America. A total of 1,095 patients were transported from the region’s hospitals and treated in coordination with a host of federal, state and city agencies and business partners working together on site. With no more patients on site, we have conducted a comprehensive sanitization program. Some measures include:

  • Installation of specialized, hospital-grade air filters to improve air quality and reduce any air contaminants;
  • Enhanced cleaning of all high-volume, high-touch areas and distribution of hand-sanitizing stations throughout the building; and
  • Requirement of all employees to be fully vaccinated in order to work on site.

The Javits Center has achieved Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) STAR accreditation, the gold standard for facilities implementing strict infectious diseas protocols in today's environment. To achieve GBAC STAR, our staff demonstrated compliance with 20 core elements, from standard operating procedures to personal protective equipment. Learn more here: gbac.issa.com

COVID-19 RESPONSE


With the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo, we operated the largest vaccination center in the country – in conjunction with the New York National Guard and the New York State Department of Health. More than 646,000 vaccines were administered in less than six months – delivering a dose of hope to New Yorkers during the greatest public health crisis of our generation. Thank you to all of our carpenters, caterers, cleaners, electricians, engineers, freight handlers, painters, plumbers, security officers and administrative staffers who played a role in the design, construction and operation of the vaccination center and the field hospital.
