AIA Assumes Management of AIA Conference

The American Institute of Architects assumed management of the AIA Conference on Architecture tradeshow, taking over from Informa. AIA took over all operations of the conference, including exhibit and sponsorship sales. The newly formed AIA Sales, Events and Exhibitions team will manage conference exhibit and sponsorship sales, conference strategy, planning and execution. The team’s leadership has considerable experience managing some of the largest shows in the country, say officials.

The AIA Conference on Architecture is one of the largest and most important conferences in the world for the architecture community.

“We thank Informa for its management of the show the last 12 years and for supporting AIA’s strategic vision of the conference, which starts with having complete control of our largest event of the year,” says AIA CEO Lakisha Ann Woods, CAE. “This shift allows AIA to gather additional stakeholders from the built community together and continue to build an exceptional event experience for a broader segment of attendees and exhibitors.”
