Architects spoke and we listened!

Architects know the value of attending the 2012 Texas Architects Design EXPO. We’ve developed a whole nEW look and feel for the EXPO to grow attendance and exceed our members’ expectations!

Here’s what Attendees will experience:

The Town Square A meeting place for activities ranging from live music, and an Austin-style airstream food trailer to a golf-swing analyzer and virtual bowling; all for a quick meet-and-greet

The Product Showcase An exciting place for Exhibitors to feature new products and services. It also serves as a place to market your already existing products or services

The Convention Welcome Party It has a new name! We want ALL Attendees to ex-perience the value and fun of “opening night” at the Convention with an atmosphere conducive for Exhibitor business

From an architect’s perspective

• Learn about resources needed to be prosperous in the industry

• nurture professional relationships with Exhibitors

• See, touch, and feel products and services

• Enjoy show specials offered by participating Exhibitors

• Take advantage of introducing clients to Exhibitors for detailed information on the products and services used on major projects
