What is the Young Architect Conference?

Let me tell you! It’s a 3-day conference designed exclusively for Emerging Professionals to be equipped with the inspiration, education, and connection for lasting success.

Why You MUST attend:

That means we will have inspiring keynotes and personal stories shared from Successful Emerging Professionals and Young Architects. You’ll also learn how to succeed in this wacky profession of architecture, and you’ll have fun and creating meaningful friendships with a community of peers who have your back.

This isn’t just a conference, this is a movement, towards a more successful profession. It starts with the Professional Development of the next Generation of Architects. It’s not about creating more Architects, it’s about creating SUCCESSFUL ONES.

By giving you what you need to be successful on every level, together, we can make the next generation of architects the most successful one. And I want you to be there for the FIRST Young Architect Conference

The Logistics- How to keep them simple and affordable

Coming to Portland can be easy with some basic planning and I want to help you have all the proper information. Let’s discuss:

  • Time
  • Transportation
  • Accomodations
  • YAC Ticket

Time – The Young Architect Conference is strategically planned the last week August. This is an amazing time to be in Portland and if you haven’t ever noticed everyone is on vacation during this time anyway. Not much business place takes place and the office will be slow. If you are going to take time off from your job, this is one of the best times to do it.

Transportation – Let me tell you a secret about buying cheap airplane tickets. Flights get more expensive the longer you wait. If you have to fly to Portland, I would recommend buying the flight sooner than later. The Conference will be Friday, Saturday and Sunday. At a minimum, you should plan on flying in on Thursday or Friday morning and leave on Monday, although spending more time in Oregon is fantastic idea.  PDX is the Portland Airport code.  Portland has an excellent light rail system which will take you from the airport and drop you right in downtown. It costs less than five bucks.

Hotel and Food – Food and accommodations can be as affordable as you prefer. The Jupiter Hotel is the Young Architect Conference official hotel. They are offering a special rate to all conference attendees. Simply mention YA Conference when you book your room or use code YAC2019 when booking online. (BTW The bar downstairs is also one of Michael Riscica’s favorite go-to spots in Portland.)

Ticket Price – What is learning real-world strategies for success from inspired leaders worth to you? What about amazing professional connections? Community and fun with powerful peers by your side? My intention is for your ticket to be worth 10x the price. Remember, this is an investment in yourself.

Plus, if it’s easy, you can get your employer to help. Just have them read Dear Employer, Send Your EP’s To The Young Architect Conference! I created for you.
