Planning and Designing an International Gateway [at SEGD's 2016 Wayfinding Event]

SEGD Wayfinding Event, April 14-15, at Miami Intl Airport

With the goal of improving the customer experience for its 40 million annual passengers, Miami International Airport has recently completed wayfinding packages for its North, Central and South Terminals using standards developed by Labozan Associates. The key challenge of the program was to reduce signage to reduce clutter--without compromising wayfinding ease. MIA is the site of SEGD's 2016 Wayfinding Event April 14-15 and this is your chance to tour the airport and learn from the challenges of planning and designing this international gateway!
