AIA Kentucky/AIA Indiana are excited to host our next annual convention in Lexington, Kentucky on September 15-17, 2016! The planning committee is already hard at work making plans for another great convention, which is expected to bring together well over 250 architects from our two states for three exciting days of programs and networking.

This year we have also joined forces with the AIA Central Kentucky Chapter and related industry associations to host the 2016 Big Ass Design Build Bourbon Blast on the opening night of the convention. Join us at the beautiful Woodford Reserve Club at UK's newly-renovated Commonwealth Stadium for a wonderful evening among construction industry friends as we raise funds to support scholarships for the ACE Mentor Programs in Kentucky and Indiana. The Bourbon Blast includes dinner, entertainment, bourbon tasting, silent auction and raffles. Reserved tables and individual tickets are available, as well as a variety of sponsorship options with added benefits.


The Call for Presentations is Open!

Now through April 1, we will be seeking programs for a limited number of break-out sessions to complement three keynote speakers. Our hope is to provide diverse educational programming that will attract the interest of seasoned architects, emerging professionals and students alike. View additional information on the presentations submission site.


Exhibits and Sponsorships

We are now accepting commitments from EXHIBITORS and SPONSORS for both the Convention and the Bourbon Blast. Many packages include both events, allowing you to mix and match what works best for your company. See your many options!


Additional details TBA soon regarding Keynote Speakers and other programming. Stay tuned!
