2014 Design-Build Conference & EXPO
October 6 - 8, 2014
Sheraton Dallas Hotel | Dallas, TX

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.

DBIA’s annual conference has grown exponentially since its founding, with the great growth occurring within the last six.  DBIA and its members recently celebrated a milestone anniversary of 20 years with record breaking attendance reaching nearly 2,000 at the 2013 Conference in Las Vegas.  Another record turnout is expected for the 2014 Conference in Dallas, which will attract everyone who is anyone in design-build. 

DBIA 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 2012 audience list for your review.

The 2014 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.

  • Each of DBIA ’s Specialty Conferences—Water/Wastewater, Transportation, and Federal—also experienced growing attendance. As we go to press, registration numbers indicate the 2013 Specialty Conferences will break previous records.

  • Design-build is fast becoming the delivery method of choice for construction projects of all types in all non-residential sectors and has overtaken design-bid-build in sectors. Continued growth is expected in 2014 and beyond.

  • Stimulus spending may be over but the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA ) familiarized federal, state and local owners with design-build.
