The Safe Events solution provides live event organizers with multiple layers of protection to meet any state’s health department requirements, guidelines from the CDC, and beyond. With a comprehensive suite of proven solutions and best practices, utilizing Safe Events instills confidence in attendees that events are reopening with maximum safety. 

The State of Events
During COVID-19, the live event industry was almost entirely shut down. Its current unemployment rate sits at 14.5 percent, compared to the national average of 6 percent.  While many venues are getting the OK to re-open as states roll out vaccinations and loosen restrictions, there is a lack of clear and consistent guidance on safety protocols for live events. 

“It’s a cause for celebration that live events are making their way back into our lives, but we must remain vigilant and dedicated to health and safety as we navigate a mixed-immunity society for at least the next year,” said Jikku Venkat, CEO and Co-Founder of ReturnSafe. “Our solution provides live event organizers with the right tools to reopen in a safe and measured way.”

How it Works
The Safe Events platform provides venue and event organizers with the tools to manage pre-event, live event and post-event safety, including:

  • Pre-screening tools to ensure only those who meet the criteria can enter the event, such as self-screening, vaccination status and COVID-19 testing. 
  • Venue entrance screening that includes temperature testing, a safe entry access pass, and a screening kiosk for those who didn’t pre-screen.
  • Contact logging wearables while inside the event for precise contact tracing if needed post-event.
  • Post-event safety measures for rapid contact tracing, exposure notifications and Health Department compliance reporting. 

“With all the excitement that comes from the return of live events comes a responsibility to make that return safely. We believe deeply in the power of music as a tool for coping with the anxiety and stress that many have dealt with over the last year,” says V2 Presents co-owners Jeremy Moreland and Brandon Fullmer. “We are thrilled to partner with ReturnSafe to provide a health screening solution for our attendees and staff. Giving our community peace of mind and security in knowing that they can get back to doing what they love in a safe environment is our top priority.”
