The IAQA 10th Annual Meeting & Exposition at the Rio All-Suites Hotel and Casino, Oct. 14-17, featured more than 20 hours of educational seminars and dozens of panel discussions and technical sessions from some of the industry’s most renowned experts and researchers.

This year’s keynote speaker was well-known TV personality and educator Bill Nye the Science Guy, who addressed issues surrounding IAQ and energy conservation. The educational focus stayed sharp, with technical sessions on “Detection of Fungi and Fungal Metabolites Using Traditional and Novel Methods,” “When Can Your HEPA-Filtered Equipment Be Your Worst Enemy?” “Post-Remediation Verification and Clearance Testing for Mold and Bacteria Remediation Projects” and more presented by individuals like Gail and Robert Brandys, Dr. Florence Wu; Craig Whittaker; Dr. Eva-Marie King; and Robert Bennett, to name a few.

Gold sponsors for this year’s IAQA Annual Meeting & Exposition, without which the top-tier mix of exhibition and education would not be possible, include Foster; Legends Environmental Insurance Services, LLC; Environmental Monitoring Systems; Sporicidin; Cold Jet; Lighthouse Worldwide Solutions; and Global Prevention Services.

The IAQA 10th Annual Meeting & Exposition wraps up tomorrow. Check back later for more from the show!
