2nd Annual Forum on Architecture and Design

The Forum on Architecture + Design is AIA Philadelphia's regional education and expo conference. The Forum focuses on curating multidisciplinary educational content for designers, civic leaders, product manufacturers, technology providers, and real estate developers - all the industries that contribute to shaping our built environment.

The Forum will offer:

• over 30 accredited continuing education programs and tours,

• Compelling keynote sessions featuring nationally/internationally recognized industry leaders,

• a two-day expo, and

• several opportunities to network and socialize with leaders in the building and design professions.


The 2019 Forum will take place at Convene CityView, which is conveniently located in Center City Philadelphia in the Duane Morris Building, 30 S. 17th Street, Philadelphia, PA 19103. Convene is a state-of-the-art meeting venue with tremendous views of Center City Philadelphia in every room. The spacious, yet centralized venue allows for many different activities in the same space: expo halls, quiet areas for a quick phone call, wifi throughout all of the classrooms, unlimited snacks and refreshments in between breakfast and lunch, and a variety of spaces for networking and learning.

Who Attends?

80% architects and 20% other design and real estate industry professionals: planners, landscape architects, contractors, trades, civic leaders, and engineers.

Why Should I Exhibit?

We are looking for the people and companies that not only have compelling content to share with our members but also to create unique experiences for our attendees. Let us help you make a lasting impact on your target audiences. AIA Philadelphia staff and committee volunteers are excited to work with you. Exhibitor spaces are limited!

Approval Process

Once your proposal is submitted, please allow a few weeks for the committee to review and make a decision about who will be exhibiting at this year's Forum on Architecture + Design. If selected, the exhibitor fee is $2,500. If you have any questions about exhibiting, please contact Jermaine Jenkins at jermaine@aiaphila.org.
