Sponsoring the Middle East Chapter

For the past 150 years, the AIA has been shaping the US architectural industry and has been actively developing as an international influence over the past 20 years. The Middle East chapter has been established to support the development of many American practices expanding in the MENA region. The AIA Middle East would like to ask for your support in order to continue the quality and diversity of events hosted by this international community, which will further the education and development of our members.

The AIA Middle East Chapter boasts over 400 members distributed amongst sole practitioners working across the MENA region to larger international firms including AECOM, Foster & Partners, Gensler,HOK, RTKL, Perkins and Will, SOM, and many others. The majority of our members are based in the UAE, Saudi Arabia and Qatar, which allows them to come together for the many events hosted by AIA Middle East across the region.

As a volunteer organization, we rely on our members’ time and energy to organize and host these events, but we also depend largely on sponsorship to make these events happen. We are looking for multiple sponsors to be represented at our key events. We are planning several for the Fall 2011 and 2012 including a Gala Dinner, Design Awards, and other events - as well as general chapter sponsors to help fund our additional events, such as building tours, lectures and film nights which occur 6-8 times per year.

This is a unique opportunity to gain exposure with architects and consultants working on a wide range of projects in the Middle East and internationally. Thank you for your support and our members look forward to seeing you at the upcoming events!
