Improving Our Infrastructure


To prepare for the new year ahead, the Javits Center’s Facilities Department will be implementing a number of infrastructure improvements to enhance the experience for our customers, business partners and employees. Some highlights include:

  • Fire Safety System Testing: In conjunction with Siemens, the building’s fire safety system will be tested and updated in all required areas;
  • New Water Fountains: All water fountains in public spaces on Levels 1 and 3 will be updated with an option for filling a water bottle. These 2-in-1 machines are designed to improve water fountain lines during high traffic times; and
  • Carpet Cleaning: All carpets throughout the convention center will be extracted and deep cleaned in order to provide visitors with an optimal experience in 2020.
