When the scheduled event takes place, participants in your Space can open the calendar to see the event and easily navigate to the meeting location by selecting Locate, to follow a dynamic line to the meeting spot, or Teleport, to directly spawn in the meeting spot.  

The Schedule pane is open and shows Keynote Speech from 3:00-4:00 pm in the Keynote area. The session modal is open with Locate and Teleport buttons. Events in Gather that use a custom Spawn location provide options to easily visit the Custom Spawn location.
