GOODTIME for Design Boat Cruise

Each year, AIA Cleveland members along with members from 24 other professional design organizations throughout the region board the Goodtime III cruise ship for the “Goodtime for Design” Boat Cruise.  Over 450+ attendees regularly attend and enjoy themselves on the cruise!  Passengers enjoy food and drink while the Goodtime III cruise ship navigates down the Cuyahoga River and out onto Lake Erie.  This event proves to be a terrific opportunity to network between members from multiple design organizations and to enjoy an evening of fun with colleagues.

On Friday, June 3rd, 400+ members from over 20 professional design organizations attended the Goodtime For Design Boat Cruise.  The sun was shining and the weather was terrific for the entire evening!  Immediately following the cruise, nearly 300 people continued the evening at Shooter on the West Bank of the Flats.  AIA Cleveland would like to thank all of the sponsors who generously participated in the event as well as all of the student volunteers who helped make the event such a success!  In addition we had several companies donate items for door prizes on board the boat.

Those companies were:

3Form, Bostwick Design Partnership, Cambria, Cleveland Engineering Society, Goodtime III, Ohio Desk, Perspectus Architecture, Quicken Loans Arena, Richard Fleischman + Partners Architects, Southern Wine and Spirits, Travis Clarke, Vocon, and XYZ Tavern

Please mark your calendar for next year’s cruise which will be held on a Friday in the early weeks of June 2017!
