-------------------------------------------

The AIA presentation at Pristina Architecture Week has shown again that the international community of architects has a special interest in the AIA and AIA Europe activities. 

I am glad the presentation drew significant attention from students and participants even before it happened (when they announced it on Facebook, electronic magazine and the PAW website). Part of it could be that it was spread out on social media, it included slides, pictures and video on the projector. The AIA and AIA Europe logos were part of the main online poster and the big one at the entrance of the building.

The presentation included the brief history of AIA National and AIA Continental Europe, the board, membership and and the goals set forward.
It was discussed about the activities at the AIA National and AIA CE,  the presentation included the information on the past and future AIA CE Conferences (such as: London, Paris, Milan and upcoming Vienna and Barcelona).

There was also a statement sent by Mr. Thomas Vonier, 2016 AIA President Elect and AIA CE founder, especially for this event.

RE:Architecture Trade Mission: UAE & Saudi Arabia
From: Julie E. Hoffman AIA
To: International Committee
Posted: Jun 05, 2015 8:29 AM
Subject: RE:Architecture Trade Mission: UAE & Saudi Arabia
Message:
Friends and colleagues,
With the recent international focus on the World Cup scheduled for Qatar and the lack of protections in that country for "guest" construction workers resulting in thousands of reported deaths I have some questions about the ethical basis for the AIA to encourage trade of architectural services with Qatar without having a parallel program in place to work with their government to improve the lot of their guest workers. Does the AIA have such a program or position statement in place? Are such considerations taken into account when agreeing to join in with other organizations (including our own government) to encourage trade of professional services in areas where workers are not protected?
Please, keep your responses respectful as I am asking the question respectfully.
Note that the question is mine alone, and does not necessarily reflect the views of my employer.

In the Middle East, business is done on the basis of personal contacts and meetings. U.S. companies need to travel to the region to develop strong working relationships with locally based architects, developers, and local officials.

Why UAE and Saudi Arabia?

There are $960 billion worth of projects planned or under way in Saudi Arabia, of which, more than $700 billion are megaprojects, or large master planned developments of more than $1 billion.
