Annual American Institute of Architects Conference

     Exciting plans are already being made for the upcoming annual AIA conference, which will be held June 21 through 23, 2018, in New York City at the Javits Center, 655 West 34th Street. It will be three days focusing on what’s new in architecture and design and will be the event of the year.

Where to stay

AIA has negotiated hotel blocks at 43 New York City centrally-located hotels with a range of options and the best available group discounts. Perks will include free breakfast, free Wi-fi, and more. Unfortunately there’s no shuttle service to the Javits Center from the hotels, but AIA will be providing info and resources to help navigate the city on foot, by ride sharing, or by train.

Attention: Exhibitors

Why should you exhibit at this important industry event with Expo hours on Thursday, June 21, and Friday, June 22, both days from 10 AM to 6 PM? The most important factor is that 90 percent of attendees have said that one of their top five best experiences at the conferences is visiting with the exhibitors. Your company has the opportunity to show new and improved products, converse with the industry’s key influencers and decision makers as well as designers, and hopefully be chosen as a supplier.

Other benefits to exhibiting include choosing a desirable floor location and making full use of event promotions, being able to give researched information on the newest products and technology, showing off dynamic displays, and more.

What is the American Institute of Architects (AIA)?

It is a professional non-profit membership organization for United States licensed architects and members of the design and construction teams in the building industry. With its headquarters in Washington, D.C., AIA offers government advocacy, community redevelopment, market research, education including Web-based resources for emerging professionals, providing examples of contract documents, and does public outreach to support the profession. With approximately 300 local chapters and 200 employees, it serves its members in many ways and also sponsors hundreds of continuing education experiences to aid architects in maintaining their licensure.
