Start 2018 with TWO great opportunities

NUMBER ONE: A listening session at the City: The City of Philadelphia’s Department of Commerce is committed to helping businesses grow and thrive in Philadelphia. In order to do so, they need to hear from you—the businesses—on opportunities, needs, and pain points.

Join in the conversation on Wednesday, January 24th from 4:00-5:30 at the Department of Commerce at 1515 Arch St, 12th Floor. There’s space for 12, but another venue can be found if more people respond. This event is targeted to fabricators, but other business types are welcome, too.
Please RSVP to or

NUMBER TWO:  On Thursday, February 22nd, philafad and AIA Philadelphia are hosting a joint event at NextFab at North 4th.

We need your help! We are looking for architect and fabricator teams who have collaborated on projects together. Three teams will discuss and present their work, and offer answers to questions such as “how did you form this collaboration?”, “what was successful and what was a challenge?”, and “how would you change the design or contract process to make this a better partnership?”.

This moderated discussion intends to present all scales and types of work/projects, so we will carefully select the three teams to provide for a diverse panel. We’ll have AV capabilities, so teams will be able to share visuals with the audience.

Interested? Write a brief proposal and send to The AIA and NextFab will also be reaching out for participants.

Of course, for all others not on the panel, please SAVE THE DATE and join us.
