5. Create Your Space

We recommend a comfortable chair, good lighting, your computer, your phone, a notebook, pen, water and some snacks! You can access Whova on both desktop and mobile. It’s good to use Whova on both, and to flick between the two to decide what you prefer watching and engaging on.
