Connecting Design, Creating the Future
November 11-14, 2021
AIA Middle East and AIA International Region are excited to invite you to our 2021 Annual Conference, to be held in the UAE during the Dubai World Expo on November 11 – 14.
Expo 2020 Dubai – “Connecting Minds, Creating the Future”
The UAE selected the theme «Connecting Minds, Creating the Future» with the sub-themes Sustainability, Mobility and Opportunity.
«In today’s highly interconnected world, a renewed vision of progress and development based on shared purpose and commitment is key. While a married human mind, an individual country, or a specific community is both unique and remarkable, it is by working collaboratively that we truly advance.»
Dubai Ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum
Inspired by this theme, we expect this to be our greatest conference ever, with colleagues joining us from all 7 International Chapters and across the globe, where the AIA is proudly represented by Country Representatives in more than 20 countries. Mark your calendars now and stay tuned to our social media channels for updates! We will soon release more details of the exciting speakers and tours we are organizing to deliver the stellar Continuing Education learning units we have all grown accustomed to.
This will be a hybrid conference, with some sessions offered both in-person and online, to accommodate those individuals unable to travel to Dubai.
OUR PROGRAM OUTLINE
Starting with an evening reception on Wednesday 10 November, we will kick things off with great seminars and walking tours from Thursday 11 through Saturday 13 November, where we are sure to celebrate the “greatest show on earth” with you!
