PURA AIR is proud to be a Summit Partner in the 2021 Indoor Air Quality Summit!

Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) is often seen as an afterthought in managing a building’s heating ventilation and air conditioning system (HVAC). In non-medical applications, adding filters to an HVAC system was once seen to solve the problem of indoor air quality. The pandemic has turned the light on IAQ.  health and safety, return to work initiatives, and economic recovery may hinge on truly addressing the air quality in our buildings.

Join us for a morning of IAQ insight, practical how-to’s, thought leadership and peer conversations that will help you get your facility or place of business prepared to welcome people back to work and to normal life activities.
