Society for Marketing Professional Services- SMPS


Their Mission: Advocate for, educate, and connect leaders in the building industry.

Society for Marketing  Professional Services (SMPS) is a community of marketing and business development professionals working to secure profitable business relationships for their Architecture, Engineering, and Construction companies (A/E/C ). Through networking, business intelligence, and research, SMPS members gain a competitive advantage in positioning their firms successfully in the marketplace.

SMPS is the only organization dedicated to creating business opportunities in the A/E/C industry. Companies tap into a powerful national and regional network to form teams, secure business referrals and intelligence, and benchmark performance. SMPS was created in 1973 by a small group of professional services firm leaders who recognized the need to sharpen skills, pool resources, and work together to build their businesses.

Today, SMPS represents a dynamic network of 6,000+ marketing and business development professionals from architectural, engineering, planning, interior design, construction, and specialty consulting firms located throughout the United States and Canada. The Society and its chapters benefit from the support of 3,700 design and building firms, encompassing 80% of the Engineering News–Record Top 500 Design Firms and Top 400 Contractors.
