Introversion is real. Do you need a tech-free moment to yourself? We understand. Head to a Digital Detox room to unplug, relax, and recharge. There will be soft seating, mood lighting, calming noises, mini-fountains, and a general sense of “zen." Leave your work at the door and screens and sounds off as this is a meeting and technology-free zone.
