Live Webinar
Attack All Angles: Making Ships Pandemic-Proof

How can Cruise become the leader in safe and healthy travel? A group of hospitality and sanitation experts has been working together to create a complete health and sanitation solution with a multi-level set of protocols to allow passengers and crew safe travel.

In this webinar, each of these prime areas of concern will get a deep dive from the presenters and discuss how they can come together for a "Total Concept Solution."

  • Ensuring the sanitation of surfaces and textiles
  • The use of UVC and LED lighting to interact as part of the
    sanitation process.
  • The quality of air onboard
  • Interaction between passengers and service personnel
  • Monitoring the onboard environment

These experts believe taking proven sanitation approaches in these categories and using them together in a well-coordinated program can increase individual efficacy, which may solve specific problems while improving total environmental health onboard for guests and crew members. As well as learning from their findings, there is also the opportunity to have a group of qualified experts conduct an onsite test of the "Total Solution Concept" on a vessel, and become part of a case study.

It is vital to protect the industry from COVID-19 in this pre-vaccine period but also future pandemics. Explore the "Total Concept Solution" in this webinar and get involved with safety's next steps.

Speakers Include:

Bruce Nierenberg, President/CEO, Bruce Nierenberg & Associates

Allan Johnston, Founder & CEO, GreenTech Environmental
Dinesh Wadhwani, Founder & CEO, ThinkLite
Glen Finkel, Co-Founder, PURETi, Toledo Solar, AquOm Water

We will discuss how COVID has impacted IT, especially regarding efficiency, how do leaders decide what a critical investment is, and how you can keep costs down while still innovating.
