The architectural issues of the 21st century will require big thinking and radical approaches. We must use the knowledge and skills of our profession – creativity, design thinking and critical analysis—to challenge existing models and develop innovative approaches to complex problems.

Join us in Toronto as we explore this topic at Conference 2018!

How can you help, and what can we offer you?

First and foremost, we are looking for support from organizations that want to help us do something that matters. Our goal is to create a space for engaged discussion and collaborative learning, which continues to garner greater understanding and connections among Ontario’s dynamic architecture community.

We have been so fortunate in receiving great support from our sponsors, year over year.

We need your help to make this event a reality. We can promise you exposure, access and input. Your enthusiasm and support will be a big part of our success, both in terms of attendance and momentum for the future.

We look forward to welcoming you as a sponsor this year!

Who will attend?

Total anticipated attendance this year is 1900 participants, including:

  • Leaders in architecture and design
  • Emerging talents in architecture and design
  • Students entering the field
  • Associate members
  • Media

Registrants/attendees include architects (principals, associates, project architects) and interns.

Architects design and produce documents that indicate how the building and interior are to be constructed, and review the actual construction to ensure quality, building code and construction budget adherence. These buildings range from churches, schools, offices and houses to public institutions, to name a few and include low-rise and high-rise structures. The process involves many products, legalities, and stakeholders. By being involved in the Conference, sponsors have an opportunity to showcase their products and services to decision makers.

We encourage sponsors to support our GOING GREEN initiative

“A green meeting incorporates environmental considerations to minimize its negative impact on the environment.”
- Green Meeting Industry Council

One of the ongoing initiatives for OAA Conferences is our GOING GREEN program, established in 2008, in an effort to reduce waste, encourage sound environmental practices by delegates, and heighten environmental awareness. As our society becomes more environmentally conscious, there is a need to develop appropriate, practical standards that optimize our use of finite resources.

Please support us in our GOING GREEN initiative.
