AIA National Convention 2016

Reserve your spot in Philly

AIA Convention is one of the largest and most exciting annual gatherings of architects and design professionals in the U.S. The people, the ideas, the environment, the setting—it all comes together for an unforgettable experience that comes just once a year.

That’s the big picture. Now let’s break it down.

The LUs
Take behind-the-scenes tours of sites that turn innovation into practice or immerse yourself in a half- or full-day workshop. There are hundreds of opportunities to earn continuing education on trending topics.

The innovations
Get the first look at new materials and technology from hundreds of exhibitors. Arrive early for an in-depth, hands-on preconvention workshop and pack your schedule with career-changing seminars. And get ahead, practically speaking: Register early to get the sessions you want. Book your hotel early and get the best choice at a discount. Preregister and get to seminars 15 minutes early and you’re guaranteed a seat.

The people
Visionaries, grassroots champions, change agents, and rising stars take center stage, giving dynamic presentations, offering insightful education, and answering your questions. And you can earn education credit for all of it—including your talks with exhibitors.

The places
You take space seriously—and so do we. We also like to have some fun with it. That’s why we’re turning the Pennsylvania Convention Center Expo floor into a temporary built environment with dynamic visuals, theaters, and lounges. Check out Philly outside of convention doors, with insider tours and Design + Dining events that turn city highlights into a moveable feast. Plus, Philly offers plenty of downtime fun—sports strongholds, charming history, spectacular architecture, and an amazing food scene.

The interactions
Students and award winners, preservationists and data engineers, experts on disaster, and art-world stars—it’s a potent setting where you can shake up the status quo, start a career change, and discover new collaborators.

Want a sneak peek?
