Prismm Announces New Physical Distancing Tool Enabling Transition Back to Events and Meetings
New Event tool enables compliant floor plans for socially-distanced events
Prismm has launched a revolutionary new technology that enables the creation of social-distanced compliant floorplans providing the Events Industry with a path to safely reopen as COVID-19 restrictions are eased. This new functionality allows planners, venues and other event stakeholders to plan event layouts incorporating new social-distancing guidelines, and dynamically ascertain new room capacities, ingress and egress, and foodservice protocols while ensuring the safety of event guests and staff as paramount.
Complying with social distancing guidelines is critical to minimizing health risks while ensuring clients, employees and guests all have the confidence that their event will meet guidelines for the health and safety of all event guests and attendees – compliant floorplans are now a strategic imperative to all event professionals and event planners involved in the events industry moving forward a new post COVID world. The Prismm Physical Distancing Tool includes on-the-fly seating distance measurements, dynamic airwalls, null-zones, and unique objects such as sanitary stations. Measurements can also be adjusted based on country, state or local government and regulatory guidelines, enabling event and meeting planners, to adjust seating and floorplans with the click of a button. With Prismm database covering 80% of United States floorplans, compliant events can be designed in minutes (floorplans of new venues can be uploaded and added to the database in 24 hours!).
Marin Bright, CEO and founder of Smart Meetings, who recently joined the Prismm Advisory Board, explained why she is partnering with Prismm. “There is no doubt that Prismm has made an impact on the events industry over the years. It was one of the first to provide digital tools for our industry and allowed us to collaborate and visualize our events. But today they have taken important steps to get our industry back on track. I am thrilled to be the first to announce that they have created a Physical Distancing Tool, which will allow floorplans to be designed with safety guidelines in mind, eliminating the concerns of planners everywhere who are looking for guidance on how to safely resume meeting. With the strength of this tech tool to guide us, planners, event venues and other event vendors will have the confidence to start booking events again. “

Partnering with Smart Meetings and Marin gives us a platform to bring our industry back stronger than ever.
