We listened to our participants and have heard the desire for more networking opportunities and theme-related sessions at the annual conference. Some innovations you can expect in 2017 are:
The AIBC Hub
This year at the annual conference we will be launching the AIBC Hub, a booth staffed by the AIBC where delegates can get information about the institute and meet & greet the people working in each department.
A furnished concourse where you will be able to spend time with colleagues and on-site sponsors.
Intern Architect Package
We created new opportunities to engage intern architects at this year’s conference. Please visit the intern opportunities page for more information.
Join intern architects and professionals in this fast-paced event designed to create connections, share experiences and strengthen community. Hosted in partnership with the AIBC Intern Architect Committee, attendees will have numerous opportunities to both contribute knowledge and learn from others. Participation does not require sign-up in advance.
Delegate bags: We’re reducing waste at this year’s conference by providing optional delegate bags. A large keynote prize will be provided in place of individual giveaways.
Water stations: Water stations will be provided throughout the conference venue and we encourage participants to bring a reusable water bottle to enjoy Vancouver’s fantastic tap water.
On-site sponsors: On-site sponsors are encouraged to provide digital material, choose sustainable products for giveaways and be conscientious about reducing waste.
