The rias presented honorary fellowships to names from a wide variety of disciplines at the convention. It awarded fellowships to Lord Foster of Thames Bank and Canadian architect Douglas Cardinal, whose talk was largely taken up with his sculptural cultural centre for Indian people in Washington. Cardinal has had his designs taken by another firm. 'The client withheld money from us and trashed us good,' he said.

The other fellowships went to tv's One Foot in the Past presenter Kirsty Wark, jazz saxophonist Tommy Smith, Glasgow 1999 former director Deyan Sudjic, and Sir Philip Dowson. Smith was presented with his award at a special reception where he performed songs in front of invited guests
