The 2013 SEGD Conference will take place in San Francisco on June 6-8, with a theme of 'Above the Fog.' The annual SEGD Conference is the only international design event focused on visual communications in the built environment. Its speakers, sessions, tours, and networking events are designed for professionals who plan, design, and build experiences connecting people to place.
Inspired by the famous fog that descends on the San Francisco Bay, the 2013 SEGD Conference will invite participants to look above and beyond the fog and look for blue sky, be inspired, and connect with designers, artists, planners, makers, and global thinkers from around the world.
"SEGD conferences are known for being places where many design disciplines converge and where we all can count on getting fresh new perspectives on our work," commented Lonny Israel, Associate Director with Skidmore Owings & Merrill LLP and Co-Chair of the 2013 SEGD Conference with Julie Vogel, Principal of Kate Keating Associates.
"For Above the Fog, we're putting together a program that will really inspire-from the evolving urban experience to the role of art and culture in defining place, to how we can use our talents to design with empathy. We're excited to host the 2013 SEGD Conference in San Francisco."
The three-day conference will be headquartered in the storied Fairmont Hotel San Francisco atop Nob Hill. Participants will explore design projects and attend social events all over the city, from Golden Gate Bridge Park and the Presidio to the new jewels on the Embarcadero to the East Bay and beyond.
