AIS: Product Suppliers

Architectural Information Services (AIS) gives product manufacturers the opportunity to interact face-to-face with architects, interior designers and specifiers through a series of high impact events.

Our events provide the ideal platform for supplier brands to reach and establish relationships with decision makers, and secure specifications. Events range from the relaxed and informal to structured formal presentations, providing a choice of channels to connect and engage with the target audience.


Architectural Product Presentations

An Architectural Product Presentation is a multi-supplier presentation that is tailored to suit each practice and is held on premise in the architect firm. Up to six suppliers are invited to showcase their latest products and innovations to the architects of the firm, with catering for the architects included. There are two types of Architectural Product Presentation sessions:

Informal: the session is held usually in the boardroom and suppliers are allocated a section around the boardroom table to display their products. Architects are invited to walk around the room and speak to each supplier.

Formal: also held in the boardroom, a formal Architectural Product Presentation session sees each supplier allocated 5-10 minutes to present their own individual presentation and demonstrate their products. Architects are seated throughout the session.

CPD (AUS Only)

Architects that a members of the Australian Institute of Architects in NSW, WA, QLD and TAS are required by the Code of Profession Conduct to complete CPD (Continuous Professional Development) annually through the participation of CPD certified activities.

At AIS, our CPD seminar days provide the opportunity for suppliers who have developed certified CPD programs to present to architects either on premise in their firm or at a public CPD day. For suppliers who do not currently have certified CPD programs, we can also assist in developing an educational program and getting it assessed and formally certified as a CPD program.

  • Private/On premise: CPD seminars held on premise at the architect firm, with only one supplier presenting at each hour session.
  • Public: Full day seminars where up to six one-hour Formal CPD presentations are delivered back-to-back throughout the whole day. Architects and other specifiers may choose to join individual sessions or stay for multiple presentations. AIS will arrange everything from the venue and AV to catering and completion certificates for each attendee.


An Equinox event is a boutique evening tradeshow with attendance strictly limited to architects and design professionals only. With wine, canapés and cocktails, each Equinox event offers a relaxed and friendly environment conducive to networking and relationship building.

Equinox events are held once a year in Auckland and Christchurch in architecturally significant venues. To further appeal to a target audience that appreciates design and innovation, exhibition spaces are not set in the standard booth format, but arranged to suit the space of the venue. Exhibitors are also encouraged to be creative with their stand design to further showcase their products and engage with attendees as they walk past.

As a company that works hard at communicating our messaging and brand awareness within the A&D market, AIS has now become the only platform we use in regards to engaging face to face with architects and interior designers.

AIS differ from many of its competitors by not being all about simply getting numbers ‘through the door’ but by genuinely interested in cultivating and helping relationships between a supplier and the specifier grow. This is on top of the substantial projects that have come about from us participating in the EQUINOX events.

Over the last few years we have participated in all states with the Equinox events and have found them to be very beneficial to our business. The staff at AIS are very well organised and the events always run smoothly. The attendees get qualified so that we are only getting specifiers which is our target audience. The feedback we get from the attendees has also been positive which is reassuring for us.
We are showcasing our products through Equinox again this year with our brand new display and look forward to continuing our association with them moving forward.

We’ve participated in Equinox events over the past few years and continue to choose Equinox based on the quality of the visitors attending combined with the quality of the events themselves. They’re enjoyable to attend as a supplier and offer the us the opportunity to engage with innovative designers, discussing current projects.”
