Here are the Top Ten Reasons Why YOU Should Attend the Young Architect Conference!
- Networking at the Young Architect Conference is more than just handing out your business card. There will be workshops to help you better learn to network, parties to allow you to practice it, and we even have a dedicated Facebook group to help you maintain those connections post conference.
- The YOUNG in Young Architect Conference isn’t about an age, or even the AIA’s definition of Young Architect. It is about a feeling! No suit and tie required! This conference is all about engaging and learning in an easy going setting.
- Highly interactive workshops for every stage in your career. Each workshop is designed to invigorate and educate you. You will be engaging with like minded individuals who not only want to better themselves, but the whole profession of Architecture.
- Parties! Because well no one throws a party like a Young Architect! Join is for drinks on Friday night at the Opening Reception and a kickass party on Closing Party on Sunday complete with great food, great music, and great people!
- Relatable Speakers. This isn’t a conference for some Star-achitect who you will never get the chance to shake hands with. Our keynotes are trailblazers you won’t see anywhere else! Our small, relaxed setting will allow you to engage with them on a personal level.
- Portland! Portland in the summer is amazing! The food scene is outstanding. The local beer is great. The people are super chill. Check out the cities Architecture with a walking tour ( will be available throughout the YAC) hosted by an amazing Architectural Historian too!
- Workshops and Keynotes are designed to cover topics that are current and relevant to the NEXT generation of Architects.
- No exhibition hall. No one will be trying to sell to you like a cheesy car salesman the whole time you are at the YAC! This is about learning, listening, and participating… not buying!
- Swag! You know you want some cool Young Architect Conference Swag!
- The people! The diversity of the people who are presenting and attending is something pretty special and much needed in the world of Architecture. You will be working alongside people who come from very different places, but all with the same common goal.
