2020 Project Delivery Symposium: Delivering the Future

As the demand for improved project outcomes continues to drive the design and construction industry, there is increasing pressure transforming the traditional roles and relationships among owners, architects, and builders. This symposium will concentrate on project delivery strategies and their critical place at the nexus of these transformational forces. The goal is to broaden the conversation among owners, architects, engineers, constructors, and all parties to the building industry.

For the first time, this event (March 10 only) will be live streamed and recorded through the AIAU platform. Attend the Symposium in person or through live streaming.


Attendees can earn up to 11 AIA LUs.
