Energy Tips

Please see below some useful tips to reduce your energy usage throughout the event:

  • Reducing your screen brightness from 100% to 70% is hardly noticeable and can reduce energy consumption by 20%.
  • Reducing cooling by 1°C can reduce energy use by up to 8%.
  • Switch to energy saving mode on your computer or screen, or sit in areas with natural light.

Fitness & Wellness

Rise and shine each morning with Speaker Programs by participating in a wellness activity before the start of the day's sessions. Enjoy some stretching with yoga instructors, or mindfulness meditation to start the day off right.

During the event, take regular breaks from your screen with time set aside for important wellness activities, such as: 

  • Hydration Breaks -- Did you know that a glass of water can increase focus by as much as 30%?
  • Healthy Snack Breaks -- Food is fuel! Keep your mind energized with a healthy snack.
  • Stretch & Movement Breaks -- Give your seat a break! Take a few mins to stand, stretch, and move around.
  • Fresh Air Breaks -- Even a few minutes of fresh air and sunlight can boost productivity and concentration.
