Seminar on the regulation of digital signage

SCRUB, the Public Voice for Public Space, in conjunction with the Pennsylvania Chapter of the American Planning Association (PPA) Southeast Section is sponsoring a seminar on the Regulation of Digital Signage, featuring Stacey Graham, Counsel at SCRUB, Jerry Wachtel, CPE, author of “Safety Impacts of Emerging Digital Display Technology”, and Alfred Borden, FIAD, PLDA, Principal, The Lighting Practice, designer of the new PECO crown lights.

With the advent of new technology in signage, many municipalities are behind in offering sign codes that address digital signage. From on-premise signs to large digital billboards, the impact of this technology will be immense. Presenters will focus on the legal issues of regulating this emerging technology, the health and safety aspects of increasing visual clutter and driver safety, as well as a presentation on the capabilities of the technology.
The event will be held on Friday, December 4, 2009, 8:30AM-12:00 noon at the Philadelphia Bar Association Conference Room, Aramark Building, 11th Floor,1101 Market Street, Philadelphia, PA. The cost is $20 for PPA members and $30 for non-PPA members. Breakfast is included.
