One of the key features of ARCASIA is the ARCASIA Forum which is a platform for the on-going discussion of current architectural ideas pertinent to the region. This is a gathering of prominent architects and thinkers intended to serve as an Asian 'catapult of minds' on matters concerning architectural and environment in the Asian context.

The Forum is attended by delegates from member's countries as well as from outside the region. The number of delegates vary from 150 to 300, with about 50 from the host country.
