About Us

The Society for Marketing Professional Services (SMPS) is a community of marketing and business development professionals working to advance industry best practices and develop business relationships for their A/E/C companies. Through networking, business intelligence, and research, SMPS members gain a competitive advantage in positioning their firms successfully in the marketplace. SMPS offers members professional development, leadership opportunities, and marketing resources to enhance their careers.

SMPS is the only organization dedicated to evolving marketing best practices in the A/E/C industry. Members tap into powerful resources and connections on the regional and national level. 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.

SMPS’ mission is to advocate for, educate, advance, and connect leaders in the building industry. SMPS’ vision is for premier professional service firms to recognize SMPS as their most trusted resource for building business and achieving success.
