The Event Safety Alliance® (ESA), a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting public health and safety throughout all phases of events, has announced APPIX as the official audience engagement app for this year’s Event Safety Summit. The conference will take place November 20-22 at Rock Lititz in the Pennsylvania city of Lititz, and those interested in attending or learning more can head to their website.

APPIX is a revolutionary new audience engagement solution, lighting effects tool, and a public safety alerts / notification solution. They recently worked on The Mixtape Tour from New Kids On The Block, the 100th Anniversary Concert by LA Phil, and almost every North American event from UFC, along with an upcoming third unique activation at the Hollywood Bowl with Disney Pixar for two nights of the Coco Live to Film Experience.

At the Event Safety Summit, APPIX will provide attendees with real-time details about the presenters and schedule through their in-venue smartphone app. APPIX will also showcase an exclusive preview of their APPIX APSA (Area Public Safety Alerts) service; a site-specific public emergency notifications solution similar to Amber / Weather Alerts but without reliance on terrestrial networks like cellular data or WiFi once downloaded. APPIX APSA allows for mission-critical transmissions of Public Health and Safety Alerts despite cellular congestion or even a total loss of electricity / power outage.

Scheduled to launch in 2020, APPIX APSA and their unique partnership with the ESA highlights a whole new level of commitment to public event safety. This will allow for unprecedented access to the brand new service for almost any special event’s producer that is a member of the Events Safety Alliance in good standing, as APPIX APSA will be made available at no extra cost (other than essential expenses like transport and labor expenses) to nearly any type of event that has over 5,000 attendees.

Continuing their dedication to ease of use and user privacy, the APPIX app with APSA will always be free to download for attendees and requires no user sign-up or device pairing to use it. This will also provide qualifying events with user-friendly safety alerts and notification solution that allows for near frictionless communication to an attending audience for Public Health and Safety Announcements. More details about the APSA service will be provided for those attending the Event Safety Summit.

Members of the ESA and attendees of the Event Safety Summit include many of the biggest names in event production for the world’s largest concert tours, along with festival managers for AEG, SXSW, Glastonbury, Lollapalooza and more. Other attendees include senior management from the safety and security divisions of Fortune 500 companies, representatives from the live event insurance industry, city government representatives, and key stakeholders for live events in Public Health and Event Safety.
