SAH Awards Gala Sponsorship



2014 SAH Awards Gala Sponsorship Opportunities


The Awards Gala

Representing a unique coming together of architectural practice and academic study, the Society of Architectural Historians’ Awards Gala honors the contributions of those who shape and interpret our built environment. At the 2014 Awards Gala, "A Foundation for Preservation," SAH will present Awards for Architectural Excellence to individuals whose pioneering work laid the foundation for Chicago’s strong preservation spirit. Awards will be given for: Preservation Advocacy; Stewardship of the Built Environment; Architectural Conservation; Architectural Media, and Conservation of the Natural Environment.


Impact

The Gala benefits SAH and supports its mission to promote the study, interpretation, and conservation of architecture, design, landscapes, and urbanism worldwide for the benefit of all. SAH serves a network of local, national, and international institutions and individuals, who by vocation or avocation, focus on the built environment and its role in shaping contemporary life. Proceeds from the 2014 Gala support SAH’s educational mission and continued restoration of the historic Louis Sullivan and Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Charnley-Persky House Museum, which is owned by SAH and serves as its headquarters.

Audience

Gala attendees include a unique group of more than 200 leaders and decision-makers from Chicago’s architectural, real estate, and design professions, rising stars, and others working in the built environment, as well as corporate and civic leaders. Join SAH as we continue to expand our audience each year. 

Opportunity

The Gala provides a unique opportunity for branding your business in front of leaders in Chicago’s design and building professions through event sponsorship. With a logo on our Awards Gala webpage, your audience includes over 3,500 SAH members internationally. Additionally, SAH’s influence goes beyond its membership, as our online educational resources (Journal of the Society of Architectural HistoriansSAH Archipediaand SAHARA) reach millions of individuals each year.
