Reach the Largest Architecture & Design Market in Minnesota!
The Expo is conveniently located for exhibitors and attendees in downtown Minneapolis. Nearly 85 percent of our members work in the Twin Cities metro area. Minnesota architects attend the annual Convention and Expo to learn about trends and new technologies in building products, to network and to earn continuing education credits. With more than 200 exhibiting companies and more than 50 seminars, this is the single largest annual event in Minnesota for architects. Convention programs are always scheduled around exhibit hall hours so they do not overlap. This way, there are no conflicts and exhibitors can serve as presenters as well!
Architects that attend the show work on all types of projects: from single-family homes, to hospitals, to historic preservation, to green buildings. Minnesota architecture firms also work all across the country and across the world. Minnesota architects need your quality products and services to stay competitive!
