Conference case study—Facilities  

Introduction

The spread of COVID-19 has wreaked havoc on nearly every industry around the globe, including the conference industry. In-person conferences inspire, create business opportunities, invoke trust and build strong relationships. All of that has come to a grinding halt.

You can give them hope.

Statement of Problem

Every aspect of the conference industry is facing the same challenge: how to safely resume conferences while reducing the spread of COVID-19.

Presentation of Problem

Conference organizers and hosts have been struggling to survive in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. Check out these statistics:

The Facts

  • Visit Austin, which helps coordinate events and conferences free of charge to help bring tourism dollars to the city, alone had 339 conferences, meetings, and sporting events cancel as of July 17, not including major events like SXSW and Formula 1 racing. They say that equals $101,000,000 in lost hotel revenue and a total estimated impact of $383,000,000 on the local economy.

 

  • One COVID-19 superspreading event in Boston may have led to 20,000 cases.

 

  • How full hotels are also directly impacts how much cash flows into the city budget because of hotel and sales taxes dollars. The more money coming to the city through those avenues can help keep property taxes down.

 

  • Members of the International Congress and Convention Association were recently surveyed and:

    • 66% believe that COVID-19 will fundamentally change how they operate in the future.
    • 84% intend to include hybrid and digital elements to events going forward.
    • 60% of respondents believe that there are limitations to the ultimate success of virtual events when compared to face to face.
    • 28% said geographic rotations are under review and likely to change in the future.
    • 78% would consider the use of a meetings management company going forward.

The Challenges

  • Astronomical cost—Paying overtime and stocking up on cleaning supplies to protect against the spread of a microbe that can live on surfaces for an entire day is time-consuming and expensive.

 

  • Overwhelming cleaning and disinfection procedures— The CDC has a rigorous cleaning and disinfection regimen in place for event locations that mandate increased cleaning. This also means the hiring of additional staff and paying for deep cleaning after a confirmed case of COVID-19.

 

  • Health checks—The CDC also recommends health checks (temperature screening) for conference attendees. This will require the hiring of additional staff.

 

  • Harmful chemicals—The CDC has an approved list of over 450 chemicals that may be used to disinfect surfaces—most of which are harmful to humans.

Making the conference industry safe again

With our deep expertise in safety, compliance and analytics, InXite 360 has the experience, products and solutions to make your industry safe again.

Introducing the world’s first COVID-19 smart response robot

The iX360 is a fully autonomous, multifunctional robot that purifies air, eliminates germs and kills a host of bacteria and viruses. The robot creates a 99.9% sterile environment, giving conference goers the confidence they need to gather safely and in 100% compliance within state and federal guidelines.  Other notable features include:

  • Non-contact temperature screening
    The robot can also screen and detect individuals with elevated temperatures—even in a crowd. And, because it uses non-contact thermal image technology, the chance of cross-infection is eliminated. By identifying who is at high risk, you’ll be able to take immediate action to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

  • Hand sanitization
    The iX360 dispenses our exclusive, antibacterial hand sanitizer with just a wave in front of the robot’s arm—perfect for high traffic areas at busy conferences.

  • Disinfection UV drawer
    The robot comes complete with a convenient drawer where users may disinfect phones, keys and more using ultraviolet light.

  • Self-charging
    When the robot’s battery begins to run low, it’ll automatically return to the charging station. After a few hours, the iX360 is ready to get back to work to disinfect and sanitize your entire conference venue. It’s even safe to use around people!

  • Easy-to-use mobile app
    With the iX360 mobile app, you’ll be able to remotely control your robot, view usage information, analyze data and more. You can even share this data directly with the State and health department in real time.

  • Save time and money
    Our air sterilization robot not only keeps your employees and the public safe from harmful bacteria and viruses, it also saves you time and money. The iX360 works ’round the clock and doesn’t ask for a paycheck, benefits or vacation time. We even offer leasing options!

In Conclusion

We’re offering more than just a revolutionary method of disinfecting and sterilizing your conference venue—we’re offering the opportunity to welcome the public back safely, economically and in 100% compliance.
