About Us

The Society for Marketing Professional Services (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 is the only national association that brings together business development and marketing professionals from the architectural, engineering, planning, interior design and construction industries. SMPS represents a dynamic network of 6,800+ marketing and business development professionals and 3,700+ firms throughout the U.S. and Canada.


The mission of SMPS is to advocate for, educate, and connect leaders in the building industry.
