Twice a year, SMPS Dallas brings together 30 business leaders across a variety of sectors in the AEC industry to exchange ideas around a topic. The event is invite-only and limited to the first 30 to reserve their spot. 

The conversation topic for this Fireside Chat is: 

Defying Commoditization
Fee pressures are creating a downward race to the bottom, squeezing already-skinny profit margins across AEC. Clients expect more for less in an increasingly crowded marketplace – add in the threat that AI poses to the future of professional services, and it’s enough to make anyone reach for their antacid. SMPS Dallas’ next Fireside Chat will dig deep into our value propositions and explore the ways that our firms can change the game to maintain an edge. Join us for a facilitated conversation to explore gaps between how firms and clients define value, identify the shifts that will require us to respond, and uncover the outliers that are creating innovation and new models of practice.

Heavy appetizers will be served and an open bar is included with your registration. In order to facilitate a more intimate, conversational atmosphere, seating is limited to 30 invited attendees. Your early registration is strongly encouraged.

An exclusive sponsorship opportunity is available for this event. For more information, please contact Shelby Powell at
