With worldwide lockdown restrictions easing, venue managers face a new set of challenges. Theaters, conventions, concerts, and sporting events are all expected to gradually resume in the coming months, which means more crowds and the unfortunate risk of COVID-19 exposure.
Although we welcome reopening for business, guest safety is a top priority. Social distancing is an easy way to mitigate the risk of spreading germs. But it may be challenging to enforce in seated events. Having a dedicated team of employees trying to keep audience members from sitting side-by-side would be as unpleasant as it is expensive. And physically removing seats is simply not feasible in most spaces.
Master Industrie’s latest innovation seeks to encourage social distancing using specialized seat covers. Just slip on the cover, and that seat is unavailable to guests. This allows venue managers to customize the distance between available seats for guests. Seat covers can be used to make whole rows unavailable, or individual seats: so, whether you want guests to only use every other seat, every two seats, or every three, the seat covers can be spaced out however needed depending on the event.
It’s an easy way to ensure that guests are able to enjoy the event while also remaining an appropriate distance from each other. The seat cover is made from a flexible material and fasted with two elastic bands, making it easy to slip on and off and suitable for virtually any size seat. They are also flame resistant, durable, come in a range of colors, and feature custom embroidery options. As you start making reopening guidelines for your venue, seat covers present a practical and efficient way to gently enforce social distancing rules and keep your audience safe.
