AIA National Convention

Friday, August 01, 2014












It is a pleasure to invite you to join us for the 2013 AIA National Convention and Design Exposition being held June 20-22, 2013, at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, CO, USA. The 2013 AIA National Convention and Design Exposition, produced by Hanley Wood Exhibitions, is the leading trade show and conference for the architecture industry. It is understood that the invitee or invitee’s company shall pay all expenses for invitee to attend the 2013 AIA National Convention and Design Exposition. These expenses include, but are not limited to, airfare, lodging, meals, ground transportation and incidentals.

In order to visit the United States, you will need to obtain a visa for this purpose. To see what your specific VISA requirements and wait times are, the 2013 AIA National Convention and Design Exposition highly recommends that you visit your U.S. Embassy or Consulate’s Web site.  The time frames for VISA processing are difficult to predict, therefore, it is recommended to apply at least three to four months prior to your travel date to avoid frustration.

This letter may be printed and used for your visa interview as supporting documentation from the 2013 AIA National Convention and Design Exposition and Hanley Wood Exhibitions. Emailed copies may be accepted but it is recommended that you review your U.S. Embassy or Consulate’s website for specific requirements. Please remember that your letter does not guarantee you your Visa-- it is one piece that the U.S. Embassy or Consulate will look at to determine your eligibility for a Visa. Unfortunately, I am not able to contact U.S.Embassies or Consulates in support of or on behalf of any individual attempting to gain entry into the U.S. to attend the 2013 AIA National Convention and Design Exposition.

One final note: please make your hotel and travel arrangements by visiting the AIA National Convention Web site. If you have any questions you may contact us by e-mail. Visit the 2013 AIA National Convention and Design Exposition Web site for registration details and associated show admission costs.

Thank you for your interest in the 2013 AIA National Convention and Design Exposition. We look forward to seeing you in Denver.

Kind Regards,

Heather K. Gibke
Marketing Manager
