The event, scheduled for February 24-27, 2022, will feature more than 90 events spanning Miami-Dade and Broward counties. In its 21st year, the festival will welcome more than 400 chefs and wine and spirit producers and is expecting over 50,000 attendees.

Designed to mitigate risk where people congregate and compliant with HIPAA, CDC, and EEOC guidelines, SymCheck verifies that vendors, staff and attendees do not pose an elevated risk for exposing others to COVID-19. As part of the entry requirements for the Festival, all event-goers will complete a digital health screening using SymCheck.

We can now say that, pun intended, SymCheck is baked into the culture of SOBEWFF® to help ensure the Festival will continue for many delicious years.”

“Safety and comfort are our top priority,” explained founder and director Lee Brian Schrager. “We are expecting more than 50,000 guests, so a simple, accurate and quick health check process was critical. SymCheck solved this huge challenge for us last year and we’re excited to partner with them again this year to make guest access even faster and easier with updated and streamlined features.”

As part of the entry requirements for SOBEWFF®, all attendees must complete a digital health screening through SymCheck.
