Each year in August, AIA Austin provides the design community with an educational conference offering a course selection curated by members, inspiring keynote speakers, and a design expo with local vendors.
This year's conference offered up to 16 CEUs and featured Senator Kirk Watson and Alex O'Briant, AIA of Ennead Architects as our Keynote Speakers. You can find full-length videos of the keynote presentations from each day on our Facebook page, courtesy of Patrick Wong. 

A design expo is open during lunch on both days of the conference, 11:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m., highlighting local and regional companies who are offering new and exciting design-related products and/or services. A Happy Hour is hosted in the expo hall on Thursday evening of the conference. This year at the happy hour, we hosted special guest 2018 AIA President, Carl Elefante, FAIA to speak about Blueprint for Better.
