Daktronics and SEGD Partner to Create New Two-Day Event: SEGD Sports + Entertainment in Las Vegas on April 10-11

BROOKINGS, S.D. – Mar. 4, 2024 – As design, sports and entertainment intersect in new ways, Daktronics (NASDAQ-DAKT) of Brookings, South Dakota, has signed on as a Diamond Industry Partner with SEGD which includes support of SEGD Sports + Entertainment. Taking place at Circa Las Vegas on April 10-11, the event will feature keynote speakers, expert-led panels, networking opportunities and tours of a world-class venue.

SEGD Sports + Entertainment Co-Chair Kris Helmick says, “For the first time, SEGD is taking a deep dive into how experience design intersects sports and entertainment. This event stretches across the industry and is tailored to both individuals wanting to break into this category of work and those who are currently practicing, both from the design side and the end clients’ side.”

The event’s mission is to forge a dynamic and creative hub that redefines brand and experiential activations in the realms of sports and entertainment. The gathering is intended to be a haven for industry experts, design enthusiasts and thought leaders to provide a platform for revolutionary design perspectives, innovative strategies and collaborative exchange.

“What you’re going to see at this event is industry leaders and like-minded people collaborating on ways to bring these areas of focus together in a more intentional way,” said Steve Bayer, Daktronics director of special projects. “As our company supports both of these industries, it’s a natural fit for us to present and participate in this new event. We’re excited to meet with everyone in Las Vegas and look forward to having great conversations to elevate the experience for these audiences.”

SEGD Sports + Entertainment registration is currently open and is a great fit for anyone engaged in leading, operating or designing for sports and entertainment organizations. The event officially ends on April 11 with the opportunity to experience the Sphere Las Vegas, but on Friday, April 12, attendees can also tour Meow Wolf's permanent Las Vegas art experience, Omega Mart. Meow Wolf describes Omega Mart as “an unforgettable, collaborative experience designed to delight audiences of all ages.” Register today by clicking here.
