Events DC, the convention and sports authority for the District of Columbia has announced it deployed an ADIBOT disinfecting robot by UBTECH at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in order to protect guests and staff from harmful pathogens, including COVID-19.

In addition to the ADIBOT UV-C system, the Events DC group is implementing a Dry Hydrogen Peroxide HVAC system, antimicrobial and electrostatic spraying, and best-in-class air filtration. The ADIBOT system uses UV-C light to inactivate 99.9% of all viruses, bacteria, and mold spores, including COVID-19, influenza and MRSA. UBTECH said the technology can disinfect a meeting space quickly by sanitizing the air and line-of-sight surfaces.

“The ADIBOT system is a modern piece of technology that has helped us mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in our meeting spaces,” said Samuel Thomas, chief operating officer at Events DC. “This safe, easy-to-use, mobile piece of technology allows us to disinfect a room in a matter of minutes and is especially effective in rooms with sensitive audio-visual equipment. It allows our staff and customers to use our spaces more efficiently and allows us to deliver on our commitment to provide the safest possible environment for our guests.”

UBTECH said its ADIBOT systems are currently deployed in more than 500 buildings, protecting more than 200,000 employees, students and staff every day in school districts, office parks, and convention centers across the country. The company’s deep foundation in robotics and artificial intelligence make it possible to offer the solution at an affordable price for organizations that didn’t previously have access to hospital-grade disinfection, UBTECH said.

“UBTECH is proud and excited to be providing solutions like the ADIBOT disinfecting system that enable large and small events to resume safely,” said John Rhee, senior vice president and general manager of UBTECH North America. “ADIBOT is also allowing staff in the event and conference industry to get back to work in an environment they can feel confident is clean and safe and free of dangerous viruses.”

UBTECH makes two versions of the ADIBOT system – a stationary system and one that is autonomous. For more details on the company’s robots, visit the UBTECH website here.
