LAS VEGAS– The SEGD Branded Environments event returns to the Digital Signage Expo in Las Vegas for the third year in a row by popular demand with a diverse lineup of speakers, tour offerings and opportunities to connect with fellow participants as well as the local design community. SEGD Branded Environments 2019—is the event for the design of brand-centric customer experiences.
In an increasingly competitive landscape of offerings, the differentiation created by integrating meaningful brand experiences into places and spaces provides the highest return on investment to both owners and users, and the case for integrating brand with place has been made by cities and companies worldwide. Simon Hancock, a SEGD Branded Environments 2018 speaker, SEGD Global Design Award-winner and founder of international design firm THERE, said “Well thought-out, experience-led placemaking, has the benefit of resonating with both residents and outsiders, motivating civic pride and building the destination brand—ultimately helping people feel inspired, engaged and connected.”
“The 2019 SEGD Branded Environments event at DSE will be absolutely engaging and inspiring—and boasts a great lineup of speakers,” says Clive Roux, SEGD’s CEO. “These experiential graphic design professionals know how to deliver the best in branded environments, from creating Instagram-able moments to unforgettable interactive experiences.”
