Remo Guide

​We highly recommend that you use Google Chrome as your internet browser for all Remo events. Safari and other browsers sometimes cause issues with Remo.​

Get familiar with Remo:

  • Watch a Remo tutorial:

Before attending a Remo event:

  • Create an account with Remo.

  • Update your profile by changing your name, adding an appropriate profile picture, adding your company/ school/ organization, and connecting your LinkedIn account

During an event:

  1. View the diagram and legend on the next page to get familiar with a floorplan that will be similar to the one used during Energy Week.

  2. You can zoom in and out by changing the view settings in your web browser. You can also move around the screen by clicking and dragging your mouse anywhere on the screen.

  3. The host of the event might enter into “Presenter” mode during the event where his/her video will fill your screen. Alternatively, the host might make an announcement which will appear as a textbox on your screen. Keep an eye out for the textboxes as they serve to guide you through the events smoothly.

  4. Your event might have a timer running along the top of the page. This is to encourage attendees to rotate through the tables (refer to 5*) so that all attendees get a chance to meet with the companies, presenters, and other participants.

  5. Remember to turn on your camera and microphone (refer to 2*) to interact with participants on your table.
