Research Strategy

To identify top conferences in the Northwestern part of the U.S., we scoured through reliable events and conferences aggregators such as 10times and Eventseye. The team also searched through the event lists and news sections of the suggested competitors for mentions of conferences. We found conferences and trade shows specific to architecture and from the requested region. However, to classify these conferences based on 'top' proved impossible as there are few conferences related to architecture, in the requested industry, and are to hold in the Northwestern part of the U.S. This is because we could not peg 'top' based on a consistent metric such as attendance or pricing considering that these data points are not available for every conference identified. Also, there are not many options to choose from based on the geographical scope of this research. After several hours of research, based on the time frame for this project, information such as 'if these conferences are pay-to-play' and 'speaker submissions open date/deadline' was not found for any conference. Hence, we have provided the available information on each identified conference. As available, we included email addresses that could be contacted for further information on some conferences.
