25 Reasons Event Organisers Should Provide a Quiet Room

Conferences and events are rich environments, full of opportunities to experience new things.

But they are also rich in stimulation, and with the constant switched on nature they can be overwhelming, exhausting and triggering for many people.

A quiet room is a space that an attendee can retreat to safely whenever they feel overwhelm or overload from the event environment. It gives them time and space to decompress and regulate their sensory system, and balance their nervous system.

Here are 25 reasons why event organisers should consider booking a quiet room for their next event.
