Welcome to the 2020 Design-Build Conference & Expo

Two Ways to Attend

We've Missed You...

We all know how challenging these past months have been and only time will tell where we’ll be in our fight against COVID-19 by the end of October. However, one thing is certain. Our design-build teams are anxious to connect with their peers, share their unique experiences and learn from each other as we plan for the future.

Design-build was about relationships before COVID-19, and it continues to be about relationships. For this and other reasons, DBIA looks forward to seeing you, in-person, October 28-30 at the Design-Build Conference & Expo. If it is impossible for you to attend in-person, DBIA is excited to announce an additional option.

After many months of collaboration with our members and volunteer leaders, we’ve decided to offer a virtual option for this year’s annual event for those who are unable to attend in-person. Our goal is to provide some certainty in these uncertain times.

For those who have already resumed travel and personal meetings and are eager for the traditional conference experience, the 2020 Design-Build Conference & Expo’s in-person event offers more education tracks than ever. We will maintain an aggressive safety program plus social distancing guidelines following state, local and CDC guidelines. Even if our in-person event must be canceled because of changing conditions, your registration will automatically convert to virtual. You can register with confidence, knowing the 2020 Design-Build Conference & Expo will happen!

We know some organizations may have travel restrictions and others are unable to attend due to COVID-19. We get it! For you, we offer the option to attend virtually and still reap the benefits of our top-notch education program plus the valuable products, services, and expertise our exhibitors and sponsors provide.

Whether in person or virtually, we need this time together because YOU are essential to our nation’s recovery. Design-build will play a major role in getting projects back on track. Whether it’s restarting projects delayed or put on hold during the pandemic or launching vital new infrastructure projects sure to emerge as part of a future stimulus package, we know design-build is crucial to our economic recovery. You are an essential element of that success.

DBIA is committed to your success, and we look forward to seeing you in October – in-person or virtually.
