AsiaWorld-Expo has introduced a pod that can check visitors' temperatures and disinfect their clothing before they enter an exhibition.
The installation could be used once major trade exhibitions and conventions resume after the outbreak, the venue operator said.
In partnership with BioEm Air Sanitising Technology Company, AsiaWorld-Expo announced the new disinfection installation called "CleanTech" yesterday.
The pod checks the temperature of a visitor standing outside and opens its first door if no fever is detected.
Once inside the pod, the visitor and their belongings will be sprayed with two types of solution in a negative pressure room.
The first solution is "BioEm," a natural botanical disinfectant that can kill a variety of viruses, including 99.99 percent of SARS and all bacteria.
The second solution, "Aegis Intelligence," is a coating that eliminates potentially dangerous microbes on objects for up to 12 months.
Once sprayed, the pod opens its second door to allow the visitor into the exhibition hall, with the whole process expected to take 12 seconds.
AsiaWorld-Expo said it is the first in the Mice (meetings, incentives, conferencing, exhibitions) industry to introduce such a three-in-one installation making use of the specific technologies.
"By thoroughly disinfecting the venue through scientifically-proven solutions, AsiaWorld-Expo safeguards the health of visitors and staff with products of high and long-lasting efficacy and sets the example for industry fellows to provide safe and healthy environments when event activities eventually resume," Chief Executive Officer of AsiaWorld-Expo Management Irene Chan Fong-ying said.
