Predictmedix Inc. (PMED) is pleased to announce that Safe Entry Station units will be deployed at the North American tour of Hockeyfest.
The deployments, in partnership with Juiceworks Exhibits and Jones Entertainment Group, will begin with the first HockeyFest event, kicking off on June 25, in London, Ontario.
Hockeyfest is the world’s largest street and pond hockey festival with tournaments scheduled in 9 cities all over North America.
The partnership marks Predictmedix the second deployment in the live-event space, after the widely covered VIP Big Game events during the Superbowl weekend in Tampa Bay, Florida.
Organized by long-time event managers, Jones Entertainment Group, HockeyFest is a highly anticipated event that brings together avid hockey enthusiasts from all over the nation to embrace and partake in the sport.
Jones Entertainment Group has raised the bar to ensure that the safety of every participant, vendor, and the visitor is of the highest calibre.
Working closely with the Chief Medical Officer in the Middlesex-London health unit and Mayor Ed Holder, they have established a robust safety protocol to protect all involved.
The set-up includes a patented HockeyFest rink board system that is half the size of a standard NHL ice rink; staff will sanitize the surface before and after every game.
Additionally, every player, staff and visitor will be screened by a Safe Entry Station before each match to ensure safety standards are enforced for the community.
Safe Entry Stations are powered by a unique proprietary artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm developed by Predictmedix Inc. and offer easy, non-invasive, and robust screening solutions for symptoms of infectious diseases such as COVID-19.
The clinically-based AI is designed by data scientists and infectious disease specialists and provides individuals with an immediate assessment of the presence of COVID-19 associated symptoms.
“We’re very excited to partner with Predictmedix, Inc. and Juiceworks to deploy their Safe Entry Systems at all of our HockeyFest events in Canada and the United States.
The artificial intelligence algorithm they have developed is going to be one of the key components in ensuring the safety of all our players and spectators at each of our events.
Travelling with the Safe Entry Systems has given us the opportunity to work with each local Health Unit in a much more diverse way than your standard contract tracing.
This will be a game-changer in getting back to some sort of normalcy in the sports and entertainment industry,” said Brad Jones, President, Jones Entertainment Group.
“As we expand into the live-event market, we are proud to partner with Jones Entertainment that carries a legacy of over 90 years in the making,” said Dr. Rahul Kushwah, COO, Predictmedix Inc.
“As an avid sports enthusiast, it’s a pleasure to be able to play a part in ensuring people from all over the country are able to enjoy a sense of normalcy and tradition by engaging in a sport we all know and love,”said Jonathan Auger, President & Founder of JUICEWORKS.
“The leadership shown by the whole group at Jones Entertainment is something I truly admire and am proud to be part of,” added Auger.
