Networking at A’20
The ROI of a live experience
Networking is one of the top three reasons the industry attends this conference. With 20,000+ attendees, A’20 is the best place to make meaningful, in-person connections that expand your success.
Don’t overlook this fantastic opportunity to connect with someone who shares a passion or area of expertise. The collaboration and small-group problem solving that happen in these highly focused, hands-on sessions are a natural conversation starter.
Events & parties
A’20 happy hours, parties, and receptions make it easy to approach people you haven’t already met, in a relaxed, fun setting. Nearly 50 events will help you organically meet new colleagues and partners or follow-up with someone from an earlier session.
The Architecture Expo
Get ready for 160,000 sq. ft. of opportunities! 650+ exhibitors will introduce you to the best new products and materials. Live programming and classes instantly connect you to experts. Happy hours and receptions are perfect for impromptu conversations.
A’20 tours are curated, architect-led experiences that give you special access to Los Angeles’ most iconic architecture. Because they typically last a few hours or go all day, there’s ample time to connect with others on or leading the tour.
Platinum Pass lounge
Purchase a Platinum Pass, and you’ll have access to an exclusive lounge where you can network with partners, firm owners, and practice leaders between sessions, breaks, or work commitments.
