Please send me to AIA Convention 2017

AIA Convention 2017 is the architecture and design event of the year, attended by thousands of architects, designers, business leaders, industry reps, and others from around the world. 

This year it’s in Orlando, April 27-29—and I’d like to attend. Here’s why.

I’ll help keep us ahead of the curve

With keynotes from visionaries, rising stars, and leading experts, I’ll leave inspired, connected, and empowered. And I’ll bring back new knowledge and best practices for our team. 

Seminars, workshops, and opportunities to talk shop with nearly 800 exhibitors on the expo floor will give me the practical tools to help us achieve our goals—and improve our bottom line. Topics will include resiliency, business management, ADA compliance, LEED, green building, and design and health. There’s even a special session on [INSERT SESSION OF INTEREST].  

We’ll get the most for our money

AIA Convention 2017 is free for new members. Young professionals save nearly 30%. And everyone can take advantage of early bird rates, hotel discounts, and more.

We’ll expand our network

AIA Convention is one of the largest gatherings of architects and design professionals in the U.S. At convention, I’ll have the opportunity to network with potential collaborators, broaden our hiring base, and represent [INSERT FIRM NAME]—putting our name in front of other architecture professionals and business leaders. 

I’ll love my job even more

I’ll look forward to returning to work invigorated by new ideas, connected to new contacts, and motivated to tackle challenges in new ways. 

By sponsoring my attendance to AIA Convention 2017, you’re investing in both of us. 

Please consider supporting my attendance.

Thank you,
