Events DC, which owns and operates the Convention Center, is taking the next step as a proven industry leader and disruptor in creating clean, sanitized meeting spaces and improving indoor air quality. The ADIBOT disinfection system leads the facility’s superior protocols, which also includes the implementation of a dry hydrogen peroxide HVAC system, antimicrobial and electrostatic spraying, and top-notch air filtration.
The ADIBOT system from UBTECH, a world leader in robotics, is armed with hospital-grade UV-C technology that inactivates 99.9% of all viruses, bacteria and mold spores, including COVID-19, flu and MRSA. The technology can quickly disinfect a meeting space, effectively sanitizing the air and surfaces in line of sight.
“The ADIBOT system is modern technology that has helped us mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in our meeting spaces,” said Samuel Thomas, COO of Events DC. “This mobile, safe and easy-to-use technology allows us to sanitize a room in minutes and is particularly effective in rooms with sensitive audiovisual equipment. This allows our staff and customers to use our spaces more efficiently and enables us to deliver on our commitment to providing the safest possible environment for our customers.
Preventing the spread of infection in public spaces is a responsibility that every business and organization across the world faces today and in the future. COVID-19 will not be the last pandemic, and probably not the most dangerous. UBTECH’s ADIBOT disinfection system leads the way in providing a solution that effectively disinfects spaces, helps improve labor costs, reduces human error, and allows essential labor to be safe and focus on more important tasks.
“UBTECH is proud and excited to provide solutions such as the ADIBOT disinfection system that allow events large and small to resume safely,” said John Rhee, senior vice president and general manager, UBTECH Americas. North. “ADIBOT also enables event and conference industry personnel to return to work in an environment they can trust is clean, safe and free of dangerous viruses.”
Events DC looks forward to safely hosting several groups in the coming weeks, including the Capitol Hill Volleyball Classic (February 19-21), Travel and Adventure Show (February 26-27), Satellite Convention (Feb. March 21-23) and the American College of Cardiology Annual Meeting (April 2-4).
The ADIBOT disinfection system is currently deployed in over 500 buildings, protecting more than 200,000 employees, students and staff daily in school districts, office parks and convention centers across the country. UBTECH’s deep foundations in robotics and AI allow it to offer this safe and effective solution at an affordable price for organizations that previously did not have access to hospital-grade disinfection.
