The 2015 SEGD Conference: Experience Chicago is over and according to most of the attendees the staff came into contact with, this one was the best, one of the best, awesome, fantastic--you name the adjective; people seemed to really enjoy it. Chicago delivered incredible sunny days, riverboat tours of the city's architecture, and receptions out on the river walk. All these city-based activities provided great opportunities for people to get to know each other and connect.
