Share Your Design-Build Expertise


The implementation of the infrastructure investment means design-build teams are mobilizing nationwide. However, broken supply chains, shortages in labor and aggressive inflation are all contributing to challenges that test project timelines and budgets for Owners. These conditions create a tremendous opportunity to deploy design-build to optimize the outcome and achieve cost and schedule certainty in very uncertain times. Do you have a design-build story to tell or insight into how best to promote Design-Build Done Right®? How are you keeping up with the ever-changing world of project delivery?

DBIA is now accepting presentation proposals for our targeted sector conferences in March 2023.

Industry pros, Owners and exhibitors attend DBIA’s annual Design-Build for Transportation/Aviation and Water/Wastewater Conferences each year. We’re looking for presenters who can showcase how and when Owners should choose design-build to deploy their capital projects with confidence in uncertain times and share insights that will help industry rise to the challenges posed by a volatile market. 
The 2023 Design-Build for Transportation/Aviation Conference will be held March 13-15 in Seattle, WA, followed immediately by the Design-Build for Water/Wastewater Conference March 15-17.
There is no restriction on topics to be submitted. However, the following are areas of interest for 2023:
  • How the Industry is Changing
  • Procuring and Contracting for Design-Build Services
  • Potential Tools/The Future of Design-Build
  • Highly Effective Design-Build Teams
  • Owners and Design-Build
  • Procurement & Contracting Best Practices
  • Infrastructure Investment and Design-Build
  • Hot Topics in Design-Build
Submitting a proposal is easy and takes less than 30 minutes.
