AIA National Convention - Philadelphia!


Have it all in Philly

AIA Convention 2016 is the architecture and design event of the year. It’s big, it’s exciting, and it’s where your community comes together for an incredible experience.

Here’s how.

Learn from industry experts

Earn a year’s worth of continuing education credits with the latest from leading experts on topics including resiliency, business management, ADA compliance, LEED, green building, design and health, and more. Turn Philly into your classroom with an educational tour or talk product with experts on the expo floor. You’ll earn credit for all of it.  

Check out what’s new—and what’s next

Explore a 171,000 sq ft temporary built environment packed with nearly 800 exhibitors and the latest in materials, technology, and trends. Register for an in-depth workshop and pack your schedule with career-changing seminars, both in the classrooms and on the expo floor. 

Inspire your next big idea

Keynoters include architect and MIT professor Neri Oxman. She leads an event filled with visionaries, grassroots champions, change agents, and rising stars—all giving dynamic presentations, offering insightful education, and answering your questions. 

Explore Brolo’s old and new

The City of Brotherly Love is home to some of the best-preserved historic buildings in the nation. But Philly’s architectural importance goes beyond the Federal style. Every neighborhood is packed with must-see architecture, including gems like the first U.S. row houses, Robert Venturi’s Guild House, and Louis Kahn’s Escherick House and Richards Medical Research Laboratories. 

Philly is also home to beautiful squares, vibrant markets, stunning gardens, and cobbled streets lined with pubs, great restaurants (and cheesesteaks), live music, and murals of heroic scale. Sign up for an educational tour for a curated, one-of-a-kind experience that also earns you continuing education credit.

Claim what’s yours

AIA Convention 2016 is free for new members. Students register for $25. Young professionals save nearly 30%. And everyone can take advantage of special prices for early registration, great rates on premium hotels, and more.
