TESS 5.0 will be held at Universal Studios in Orlando Florida this year. Since 2008, Cuningham Group has hosted and organized a one-day forum devoted to sharing and exploring the topic of sustainability within the leisure and entertainment industry. In September of 2013, Cuningham Group along with four distinguished partners – Architectural Design and Research Institute of Tsinghua University; School of Architecture, Tsinghua University; Academy of Arts & Design, Tsinghua University; and Beijing Qingshang Architectural Ornamental Engineering Co., Ltd. – brought this groundbreaking forum to Asia.
TESS® Asia is the largest one-day event devoted to sustainable practices. TESS Asia focused on the plans for major expansion in leisure and entertainment across Asia and specifically in China. Given the size and scope of these projects, with implementation of even the most basic of sustainable design practices, entertainment developments can save energy, reduce waste, run more efficiently and ultimately save money thereby increasing profitability to the owner.
