Welcome to the 2023 Design-Build Conference & Expo!

Gaylord National, Washington D.C. 
November 1-3, 2023


The Design-Build Conference & Expo, Nov. 1-3, is the largest national gathering of the year for the design-build market and the only event centered exclusively on design-build. From design-build practitioners and specialty contractors to public and private Owners, the Conference & Expo features more than 2,200 attendees and exhibitors from all design and construction sectors – a number that continues to grow year after year!

This year, DBIA has expanded our Virtual Design & Construction Leadership Exchange (VDCLEx) to a half-day pre-conference experience taking place on Oct. 31 for both experienced VDC professionals and those new to VDC. We’ve added a new Region Round-Up event to help people connect with members and leaders from their Region to not only build relationships, but to hear about priorities, challenges and opportunities for local engagement. We’re also retuning to TopGolf for our Tuesday evening Opening Party, always a popular spot for fun, good eats and friendly competition!

Our event provides unparalleled access to meet decision-makers and network with all members of project teams, including general contractors, architects, engineers, MEPs, attorneys and finance professionals. With recent market analysis projecting design-build to account for nearly half of all construction spending by 2026, attending this year’s Design-Build Conference & Expo is a must attend for you and your teams!
