COVID-19 Safety Measures

The Oklahoma City Convention Center continues to closely monitor the latest developments regarding the Covid-19 pandemic globally and any potential impact it may have on our day-to-day operations. In response to growing awareness and concern, the Oklahoma City Convention Center is working with each group to ensure Covid-19 Safe practices are implemented.

Our local staff is also being supported by ASM Global corporate resources and our newly implemented VenueShield Environmental Hygiene Program to ensure that we implement operational best practices throughout our network of facilities.

Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization

Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization (NPBI) technology will deliver purified indoor air. The solution is a patented technology developed by Global Plasma Solutions. This is proven technology to fight pathogens with high concentration of positive and negative ions, delivering them to the space via the HVAC system. Within the air stream, ions attach to particles, where they combine, become larger and are more easily filtered from the air. When ions come in contact with pathogens, they disrupt the pathogens’ surface proteins, rendering them inactive.

In addition, there are added value elements of saving energy consumption and a lowering of carbon footprint.

Each of the OKCCC air handler units will be outfitted with the NPBI units to clean the indoor air throughout the facility.

Global Plasma Solutions’ NPBI technology has been certified by United License 867, and United License 2998 as ozone-free. Neither ozone or other harmful byproducts will be produced within the environment.

LightStrike Robot

LightStrike Robot uses a patented Pulsed Xenon UV light system that produces UV across the entire germicidal spectrum deactivating the pathogens at the wavelengths where they are most susceptible.

Xenex solutions are proven effective in the most demanding healthcare environments and are ideally suited for disinfecting hospitality, transportation, and other environments to deactivate bacteria, viruses, spores, and those impacted by the ongoing COVIS-19 pandemic.

Deactivating germs on high touch surfaces improves customer safety and creates safe environments which is critical to maintaining sustainable business operations.
The LightStrike Robot will be deployed to within the OKCCC to deactivate pathogens on high touch surfaces to include but not limited to: tables, chairs, and elevator cabs. This solution will decrease the resources required to disinfect space in order to return to service.
