AIA Convention 2014

Introducing AIA Convention 2014, designed with you at the center of the experience.

Connect with the world’s brightest architects, designers, innovators, provocateurs, and thought leaders. All in one place at one time, in the heart of America’s architectural epicenter—Chicago.

We’re inviting you to be a part of an experience that is designed with purpose. A reimagined AIA National Convention that presents a fresh, new approach to how architects learn, engage, and connect with one another.

Intrigued? Here are seven reasons why you should attend. Join the community in Chicago June 26—28, 2014.

1. Learn

It’s a great opportunity to satisfy your continuing education requirements. Topics go beyond the ordinary: “Designing Schools for Obesity Prevention.” “Increasing Your Firm’s Bottom Line by Adjusting for Shifting Demographics.” “Exploring Energy-Generating Affordable Housing.” We’re pretty confident the education offerings alone are reason enough to attend.

2. Learn more

It’s not just the subject matter, it’s also the learning experience that makes convention education so valuable. Seminars are engaging and interactive, and presenters use cool technologies to bring their ideas to life in classrooms and on the expo floor. It’s inspiring, and what you learn goes home with you, ready for action.

3. Solve technical issues

Bring your questions—you’re highly likely to find an answer among the hundreds of professionals leading seminars and the experts managing nearly 800 displays at the AIA Expo 2014.

4. Get out in front

Discover new building materials and technologies that will have a dramatic impact on your work. Experience firsthand new ideas and trends that will influence the lives of those for whom you’re designing.

5. Promote you

Take advantage of rare opportunities to interact with award-winning creatives, motivating business leaders, and innovative engineers. Interaction happens not only in seminars and events, but also on the expo floor, where the atmosphere is geared toward getting you information you can use.

6. Collaborate and connect

The days of working in silos are over. Successful development projects require team players and tight integration. Gaining experience in collaboration and working with other disciplines raises your value in the workplace and the marketplace—and this is the place to make the essential connections.

7. Enjoy the diversity

You’ll encounter new faces that reflect the changing profile of the architecture and design field. Check out programs centered on women in architecture or classes designed to help you start up a firm of your own.
