AIS: Design Specifiers

Architects and design specifiers are at the forefront of innovations in building materials, integrating the latest products and technologies into their designs. Only with a good knowledge of what products and technologies are currently available in the market can you come up with new, innovative solutions to the problems your clients present to you.

At AIS, we understand that finding the time to learn and develop your knowledge doesn’t always come easy especially when you have to balance it with the demands of your day-today work. To assist you, our events have been purposefully designed to provide you with the latest product and technology innovations in the building industry with the ability to be tailored to the areas and projects relevant to you, at a time that suits you through multiple platforms like boutique trade evenings, lunch time product presentations and CPD presentations. The best part is these services are free of charge.

iFlex

An iFlex is a multi-supplier presentation held free of charge on premise at the design specifiers’ practice. iFlex’s can be formal or informal and are catered for, with food and refreshments provided at each event.

We take the time to get to know your practice, your design intent and project focus to ensure that each and every product presentation we run with you is directly relevant to your business needs. 

All event coordination is completed by AIS and each practice receives a post event report summarising the suppliers in attendance and the products presented. We also act as the middle man between your practice and product suppliers saving you time and relieving the amount of calls you can receive on a week to week basis from reps.

CPD

In an industry where technology, best practices and regulations are constantly evolving, it is important for design specifiers, in particular Registered Architects, to undertake continuing professional development as a means of developing and maintaining their professional standards of competency.

AIS has a CPD Menu with a range a topics covering multiple product disciplines that can be presented in-house within your practice. Our CPD service is a great way to ensure you and your team acquire your formal points for the year along with certificates as proof of attendance.

AIS also run CPD days once a year in Brisbane, Sydney and Perth where 5-6 CPD presentations are run throughout the day with tea, coffee and lunch provided for free. These events are held towards the end of each states CPD year so are great if you are behind on acquiring your 10 formal CPD points.

Equinox

Equinox is a series of free evening boutique exhibitions held across Australia and New Zealand designed to connect architects, interior designers and design specifiers with product suppliers.

Unlike the larger tradeshows and exhibitions, the more intimate and relaxed environment of Equinox means specifiers can easily engage with suppliers and manufacturers over drinks and canapés whilst discovering the latest in new building product innovations.

Our events also have a strong focus on creativity and learning so we have a dedicated space called the Equinox Education Hub where presentations on product innovations are run whilst attendees get to enjoy a free cocktail. Multiple prizes are given away on the night as well as every attendee receiving an Equinox Showbag filled with goodies, so no one walks away empty handed.
