Barcelona nightlife venues pilot technology to put the brakes on COVID-19

Nightlife venues in Barcelona put pilot testing forward with a system to make indoor venues 100% covid free

The suggested formula is more efficient than vaccination and would allow for reopening activities at 100% capacity even without the need for social distancing or masks


Due to the uncertain and questionable future that nightlife venues are facing worldwide, the International Nightlife Association (INA) hasn’t stopped fighting in search of the proper solutions to get venues to return to normal operation. For this, the INA has recently reached an agreement with SieXsein Europe, a company specialized in biosafety that has provided the formula that proves that it is perfectly feasible to guarantee indoor spaces 100% free of covid-19 and all its mutations.

Thus, in the Spanish region of Catalonia, members of the Catalan Restaurant and Nightlife Association adhered to Spain Nightlife, an association member of the INA have put forward this technology before the governments and the willingness for venues to implement this technology to get nightlife back up and running as soon as possible. Barcelona’s venues and some of the Costa Brava area have come forward and proposed to run pilot tests in numerous indoor venues, to prove that nightlife, under strict health and safety requirements, is safe.

The suggested formula is a sign of hope towards the new normal for nightlife and restaurants

This unique formula applicable to anywhere around the world would allow for the reopening of restaurant and nightlife activities, even without the need for social distance or wearing a mask. Said formula, which would also contribute to an improvement of public health in general, consists of prior testing with rapid and accurate results, tracing through Big Data technology, management of the results with a personal and non-transferable QR code essential to access the premises through the Liberty Pass APP, accompanied by the installation of devices that eliminate 100% of the covid-19 virus and all its mutations in interior spaces both in air, droplets and all kinds of surfaces in just milliseconds. These devices are certified by ENAC (Spanish National Accreditation Entity) and already work in many countries in Asia and in important health wards such as ICUs.

Joaquim BoadasGeneral Secretary of the INA and Spain Nightlife has stated the following, “Nightlife and restaurant venues can be perfectly adapted to the current crisis and are capable of functioning without putting clients and workers risk at stake. Many venues have been closed for a year now and many are in a critical state and at risk of disappearing permanently, an industry that is so important for tourism around the world and in dire need of reactivating the global economy. For this reason, we ask for governments to sit down with our industry and work on the reopening of the industry and the recovery of tourism and the economy by conducting pilot testing in venues and allowing for the industry to prove it can coexist with the pandemic”.

On behalf of Carmen Alvarez, the CEO of SieXsein Europe has said the following, “At SieXsein we have been working since the start of the pandemic to find the formula that is best to reactivate and reopen the industries that have been most hit by the pandemic. I have been very fond of the nightlife and restaurant industry and consider that it has been left completely abandoned during this crisis and it’s a personal mission for me to reach the new normal as soon as possible and reactivate the restaurant and nightlife economy and tourism worldwide. Reaching this agreement with the nightlife industry will allow for the best solutions in biotechnology to be applied all around the world and recuperate the economy and general well being of people”.

The INA demands governments conduct more pilot testing in venues

The results of the PRIMA-CoV trial conducted in our Gold Member Venue Sala Apolo, in Barcelona and its non-infection of participants prove the need of conducting pilot testing is essential to face the sanitary crisis head-on. By detecting the problems the virus brings and bringing possible solutions forward would be a better solution than just shutting down venues as a whole and allow for illegal gatherings to take place.

The nightlife industry can be a solution to the current pandemic since it could be a primary detection source together with the governing authorities and act as a firewall to contain the spread of the virus. Having COVID testing to access nightlife venues can also get a big portion of the population to get tested when they wouldn’t otherwise, the detection of positive COVID results can then be notified to governing officials and issued the proper quarantine (depending on each countries laws).
