2015 Design-Build Conference & Expo
November 2-4, 2015
Colorado Convention Center | Denver, CO

The Design-Build Institute of America is the only organization that defines, teaches and promotes best practices in design-build. Design-build is a collaborative approach to project delivery that integrates design and construction with a single-point of responsibility contract. For two decades, design-build practitioners, specialty contractors, and public and private owners have gathered annually for the Design-Build Conference & Expo, the largest gathering of the year for the design-build market and the only event centered exclusively on design-build. The Design-Build Conference & Expo includes attendees and exhibitors from across all design and construction sectors.


Continuing to grow each year, the Design-Build Conference & Expo features nearly 2,000 attendees and exhibitors from across all design and construction sectorsDBIA attendees are senior vice president levels or higher from the practitioner firms that comprise the design-build teams, plus senior directors and managers from owner and agency organizations that have capital project, operational, acquisition, contract and budget authority for non-bid construction projects.  Inquire today to receive a 2014 audience list for your review.

The 2015 Conference & Expo will be the most significant industry event of the year!

The last four annual conferences enjoyed record-breaking attendance. Clearly, this integrated delivery method is maintaining its upward trajectory and is poised for dominance.


  • 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 can attend sessions or schedule meetings throughout the day. 
  • Network with Owners: Owners recognize that design-build is the most efficient way to deliver their projects. Last year nearly 200 owners attended the 2014 Design-Build Conference & Expo in Dallas – a number that has increased 60% in four years.
  • 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 nearly 2,000 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 of design-build (limited availability, first-come basis) 
  • View the updated online Floor Plan to make your selection and join the largest annual gathering of design-build decision makers and teams.
