Arlington, Virginia, UNITED STATES

ARLINGTON, Va., Jan. 08, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Consumer Technology Association (CTA), owner and producer of CES®, has selected LiveSafe, the world’s leading mobile safety communications platform to help protect the nearly 200,000 attendees, exhibitors, media and event staff at CES 2018, January 9-12 in Las Vegas, NV. CES participants can use LiveSafe to discretely and anonymously report concerning behavior or safety concerns, request medical assistance, identify facility issues and more to security officials in real-time who can coordinate and escalate responses appropriately.

“The safety and security of our CES participants is important to us,” said Karen Chupka, CTA’s SVP of events. “The LiveSafe platform is a real-time, location-based solution that will help us to communicate important safety information effectively and allows attendees to report concerns or problems quickly. Adding LiveSafe is an important part of our efforts to enhance safety and security for all CES participants.”

LiveSafe enables two-way, real-time interaction between individuals and security and facilities teams. Users can send text, photos, videos and precise location information to report incidents ranging from routine maintenance needs to suspicious activity to safety threats. LiveSafe’s cloud-based command dashboard receives tips in real time and allows security officials to respond via secure live chat.

“With the implementation of LiveSafe, CTA is being proactive and taking steps to improve the safety and security for people attending and working at CES 2018,” said Carolyn Parent, CEO, LiveSafe.  “Increasingly, we’re seeing large scale events and facilities like CES, ASIS International 2017, and the San Francisco 49ers/Levi Stadium implement LiveSafe to protect their ‘community’.  The LiveSafe platform is ideally suited for events and has also been used by clients to protect their people attending or participating at the Olympic Games, Super Bowl, and World Series.”

LiveSafe can be downloaded for free from the Google Play or iTunes app stores.  New users attending CES should fill out their profile and subscribe to “CES 2018.”
