Join DBIA for the Nation’s Only Federal Design-Build Event

Each year design-build Owners and industry interested in federal sector projects (including those funded with federal dollars nationwide) come together in August for the Federal Design-Build Symposium. Registration is now open, and we hope you’ll join DBIA from August 22–23, 2023, in Arlington, Virginia.

The Timing Couldn’t Be Better

Over $200 billion in federal infrastructure funding has been announced and is headed to states and local governments. Thousands of recipients and projects have already been identified for funding. Understanding the unique challenges of federally funded projects is especially important today. This event provides a unique opportunity for targeted design-build education, candid conversations, and meaningful networking for design-build team members in the federal marketplace.

What to Expect

DBIA’s Federal Design-Build Symposium proudly offers federal teams the innovative tools, design-build best practices, and federal policy insights needed to build high-performance teams delivering better projects — on time and on budget. From understanding the FAR to cutting-edge design-build innovations, Federal Design-Build Symposium sessions are designed to help federal design-build teams deliver on the promise of economic recovery. Our program is created by experienced design-build pros to target the topics most important for your teams.
