The Design-Build Conference & Expo is the largest national gathering of the year for the design-build market and the only event focused exclusively on design-build best practices. For over two decades, design-build practitioners, specialty contractors, and public and private owners have gathered annually for the Conference & Expo. The Design-Build Conference & Expo features as many as 2,000 attendees and exhibitors from across all design and construction sectors – a number that continues to grow year after year.
Maximize your Time: DBIA knows your time is valuable so we don’t tie exhibitors to their booths for hours on end. All show hours are non-compete hours so that exhibitors gain maximum attention from conference attendees, including during four major food and networking functions on the show floor. In addition, this allows exhibitors to attend sessions or schedule meetings when the Hall is closed.
Network with Owners: Owners recognize that design-build is the most efficient way to deliver their projects. Last year owners represented over 10% of the attendance at the 2014 Design-Build Conference & Expo in Dallas.
Build your Team: As the only event focused exclusively on design-build project delivery, all members of the project team attend the Design-Build Conference & Expo. Meet up with other GC, Architect, Engineer, MEP, Attorney and Finance professionals and create your next project team.
Meet Decision Makers: Nearly 50% of our attendees are mid- to upper-level management including CEOs, COOs and Vice Presidents. Network with those who have the power to make instant decisions.
Recruit Future Design-Builders: Students representing colleges and universities across the nation attend the conference and participate in a special Student Expo. Exhibitors are extended the opportunity to attend and network with the future design-build leaders (limited availability, first-come basis)
