Events case study—Facilities
Statement of Problem
Every aspect of the event industry is facing the same challenge: how to safely resume live events while reducing the spread of COVID-19.
Presentation of Problem
Michael Strickland of Bandit Lites sums up the situation perfectly: “The Live Event Industry has been at zero income since March 13 and will be until well into 2021. The complete lack of income has been and will continue to be destroying the people, the firms and the industry. This was caused by the COVID-19 situation and the ongoing forced shutdown of all venues and large gatherings.”
Consider the following statistics:
A researcher at the University of Westminster carried out a global study into the predicted impact of COVID-19 on the events industry. Due to a significant reduction in demand for events due to the pandemic, nearly half of all those surveyed (40%) implied that the business they are involved in may not exist in its current form within the next 6-12 months.
Live Nation, the world’s largest concert producer, has announced that their revenue plunged by 98% in the last financial quarter, after COVID-19 devastated the live music sector. The company reportedly only presented 24 concerts in North America, while the second quarter of 2019 saw over 7,000 events.
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.
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 event 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 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 event 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.
The iX360 dispenses our exclusive, antibacterial hand sanitizer with just a wave in front of the robot’s arm—perfect for large event venues.
Disinfection UV drawer
The robot comes complete with a convenient drawer where users may disinfect phones, keys and more using ultraviolet light.
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 event 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, sponsorship and customer loyalty programs where you could earn a FREE robot!
We’re offering more than just a revolutionary method of disinfecting and sterilizing your event venue—we’re offering the opportunity to welcome the public back safely, economically and in 100% compliance.
