A revolutionary new event technology tool is poised to drive the return of meetings after the COVID-19 disruption period, by making it feasible to plan room layouts that take each destination’s safety measures into account.

Allseated Physical Distancing Tool’s algorithms are based on government guidelines and will allow meeting planners, with the click of a button, to set parameters and see what a space will look like, how new rules will affect capacity, room entry and food service while putting the safety of guests and staff at the forefront. Allseated Physical Distancing Tool covers 80% of the floorplans in the United States and if a floorplan is missing, they can produce the layout template in 24 hours!

Marin Bright, CEO and founder of Smart Meetings, explained why she is partnering with Allseated and joined the advisory board. “There is no doubt that Allseated has made an impact on the events industry over the years. It was one of the first to digitize our industry and allowed us to collaborate and visualize our events. But today they have taken important steps forward 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.”

Sandy Hammer CMO and co-founder of Allseated commented on the importance of getting this timely product in the hands of planners and venues so they can safely get back to work. “As part of the events industry for the last seven years, it has been a privilege to build inspiring tools for our users. Partnering with Smart Meetings and Marin gives us a platform with the same aspirations. We both believe that events will return stronger than ever—but in a different format, at least at first. This will help deliver a safer experience.”
