2015 AIBC Annual Conference October 28-30, 2015Early Bird Pricing Through September 15

The AIBC invites you to attend the 2015 Annual Conference – What’s Now – Insights and Directions. The conference will be held from October 28 – 30, 2015 at the Vancouver Convention Centre.

About the Conference

The 2015 AIBC Annual Conference brings together the architectural and design community to learn about cutting edge trends and issues in the practice of architecture, including future design directions, innovative technologies, community needs and business practices.

This annual gathering is the largest of its kind in British Columbia and gives you the chance to network, socialize and celebrate the work of practitioners and theorists. As in previous years, the conference will be rich in professional development and provides the opportunity to collect learning units (LUs).

Conference Program

The 2015 AIBC Annual Conference runs over three days and features plenary sessions, seminars, workshops, panel discussions and an industry exhibitor show.

Due to the positive feedback we received last year, we are excited to introduce a plenary format for 2015. This year, the conference will feature four plenary sessions led by prominent speakers from Canada and the U.S. On the following day, participants can choose from four session streams that are based on the previous day’s four plenary themes. These sessions will be led by one or more of the same plenary speakers who presented on the previous day. Themes include Fluidity and Architecture, Architecture of Place, Designing Practice/Practicing Design and Disruptive Trends.
