Event: 2017 Design-Build Conference & Expo, 11/8 - 11/10, Philadelphia, PA
Event Description

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 sectors?. 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 a capital project, operational, acquisition, contract and budget authority for non-bid construction projects.

The 2017 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. During 201 in Las Vegas, nearly 200 owners attended the Design-Build Conference & Expo – 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)
