SEGD is an amazing community of designers, fabricators and manufacturers who create experiences that connect people to place. One of the many membership benefits of SEGD is a library of talks from SEGD's 4-6 events a year. Starting from 2014, these videos are available for viewing for members for free.

What an amazing Wayfinding event we had last week in Boston. Featuring sold-out tours, an all-star line-up of presenters and numerous opportunities for wayfinding professionals from around the world to connect with each other, this was the largest Wayfinding event in SEGD history! If you were there, you know how great it was. But if you couldn't make it, here's what you missed out on.
In addition an exemplary wayfinding program catered to the largest cross-section of wayfinding professionals at a wayfinding-centric locale (read: Hilton Boston Logan Airport), we’re proud to feature three SEGD Fellows who will headline this year’s SEGD Wayfinding event, August 17–18 in Boston.

The SEGD Wayfinding event is poised to bring together a range of experts to tour, connect, discuss and discover over two days this August.
