Health & Safety Protocols

ASM Global, the world’s leading venue management and services company, is implementing new environmental hygiene protocol in response to evolving guest expectations, stemming from the coronavirus pandemic. VenueShield, a comprehensive and best-in-class program, will be deployed at more than 325 ASM Global facilities around the world, including the Reno-Sparks Convention Center, Reno Events Center, National Bowling Stadium and the Reno-Sparks Livestock Events Center.

ASM Global’s VenueShield Task Force will be implementing new protocols and procedures, in accordance with international health care guidelines from the CDC, NHS, PHAA and WHO, among others. These extensive measures will explore the use of personal protective equipment (PPE), food safety measures, air quality control, surface cleaning, physical/social distancing, temperature checks, thermal cameras, hand sanitizers, reduced touch points, contactless transactions, daily monitoring systems, and more.

Additionally, ASM has proactively partnered, and will further consult, with leading subject matter experts, health officials and industry leaders in the areas of industrial hygiene, sanitization and fulfillment to consult on all facets of the VenueShield program. Specific consultants have been hired to assist with more technical aspects of the protocol like air purification, filtering and the maximization of fresh air exchange.

New health and safety protocols include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Separate and controlled entrances and exits will be operated during events
  • Event scheduled will be staggered to reduce person-to-person contact
  • HVAC system is set at 100% fresh air circulation from one hour before and one hour following events
  • Event booths, presentation areas and displays will be set up to encourage safe social distancing
