Epistemix DGIQ COVID Model

Because the health and safety of the DGIQ community is of paramount importance to us, DATAVERSITY partnered with Epistemix, a software company that has built computational models to help the exhibition, conference, event, and tradeshow industry prevent the further spread of COVID-19, inform policy, and support decision-makers in setting and communicating protocols to assure events can happen safely.

With Epistemix modeling software, they simulated scenarios and their probable outcomes for the DGIQ 2021 conference based on the expected number of attendees (~300), number of exhibitors (~20), average age of attendees, vaccination coverage of attendees, the vaccination coverage in San Diego and other factors. Results from Epistemix are as follows:

  • With 100% vaccination coverage of attendees, Epistemix’s model forecasted 0-3 possible COVID-19 cases as a result of the conference.
  • With the additional mask requirement put in place for attendees and 100% vaccination coverage, Epistemix’s model forecasts a 60% decrease in cases or 0-1 COVID-19 cases as a result of the conference.

Requiring attendees to wear masks during the conference and requiring proof of vaccination upon entry to DGIQ creates an environment that is 4x less likely for somebody to contract COVID than doing everyday activities in San Diego.  For more information or if you have additional questions, please email us at events@dataversity.net.
