VeChain (VET) and DNV GL’s infection risk management is set to safeguard one of the biggest annual trade exhibitions in China.
My Care to Combat COVID-19 Risk
According to an announcement made today, VeChain-powered infection risk management solution, My Care will be used to mitigate the possibility of the spread of the COVID-19 virus at InterContinental Shanghai Hongqiao NECC – the only luxury hotel located within the National Exhibition and Convention Center (NECC).
For the uninitiated, the third edition of the China International Import Expo (CIIE) is expected to draw a large number of international and domestic enterprises and businessmen from all across China and across every industry.
Subsequently, it becomes important for the CIIE organizers to take care of all health precautionary measures at the event. My Care will be used for this very purpose.
Despite 2020 being dominated by the COVID-19 pandemic, a record number of domestic and international companies are slated to attend the CIIE in November. This highlights the significance of the need for hotels and accommodations to be properly secured against COVID-19 infection risk.
My Care is powered by the VeChain ToolChain and enables hotels and places of accommodation to maintain and present an immutable and trustworthy record of information on the VeChainThor Blockchain. Notably, they also get the option to include the verified infection risk management readiness report by DNV GL.
VeChain Blockchain to Safeguard Hotel Guests
It’s worthy of note that InterContinental Shanghai Hongqiao NECC is the first hotel in the InterContinental Hotels Group to have its infection risk management measures verified by My Care. The verification will further cement the hotel chain as a trustworthy place to stay at for attendees to CIIE.
Commenting on the development, Christoph Hoeflich, General Manager, InterContinental Shanghai Hongqiao NECC, noted,
“To provide our guests with a safe and secure stay has always been the cornerstone of our service. The verification of DNV GL stored on VeChainThor blockchain further proves the effectiveness of our efforts in infection risk management.”
“With the countdown to the opening of the 3rd CIIE now underway, we are also committed to implementing assured prevention to build confidence for our guests.”
In similar news, on September 10 reported that DNV GL had announced the launch of VeTrust – a new COVID-19 risk self-assessment solution for hotels in China.
