The Society of Marketing Professional Services was created in 1973 in St. Louis by a small group of professional service firm leaders to help tackle the day-to-day complexities of marketing at a time when marketing was barely acknowledged as a separate component of professional service firms. 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.
