For over two decades, AIA Florida Gulf Coast Chapter has hosted The Sarasota Design Conference, a biennial event that attracts award-winning speakers from around the world. The Sarasota Design Conference has a history of featuring design-innovative speakers in a casual setting that encourages dialog and learning. This event is well attended by industry professionals, primarily architects in the Florida Caribbean region.


The theme for the 2018 Sarasota Design Conference is Designing for Change.  We exist in an environment of constant accelerating change. How are we, as architects, responding to the changes occurring in our climate, agriculture, society, transportation or technology? What are we doing different and how?  And why? These are some of the questions to be explored during the conference.


The 2018 Sarasota Design Conference plans to host five speakers, a panel and a workshop over 4 days. In addition, there will be other related events like architectural tours, a film screening, building tours, presentation of the biennial Design Awards, an exhibition, and networking opportunities.
