The future of federal projects is in your hands, and here’s your chance to shape that future. DBIA is seeking presentation proposals for our 2024 Federal Design-Build Symposium taking place Aug. 21-22, in Reston, VA.

Why Your Involvement is Pivotal

The Federal Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) and Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) funding have created prime opportunities for the continued growth of design-build project delivery. Nearly half of all design and construction projects in the United States are being delivered using some form of Design-Build. Yet, with growth comes complexity — workforce shortages, supply chain intricacies and more. Your insights are the key to addressing these challenges and ensuring federal projects thrive.

Your Experience, Their Solution

We are actively seeking professionals deeply entrenched in design-build in the federal sector or public sector projects using federal funds to submit presentation proposals for the 2024 Federal Design-Build Symposium. Bringing together key players from agencies and the design and construction industry with the mutual goal of optimizing Federal project outcomes is more important than ever, and your firsthand experience is invaluable to crafting solutions tailored to that optimization.

Share Your Experience and Insight on These Critical Topics:

  • Lessons learned and best practices
  • Managing risk and expectations in Federal projects
  • The evolution of collaboration and teaming for success
  • Essential elements of a successful acquisition strategy
  • Navigating the complexities of the Federal sector

Do you have an idea that isn’t listed? If it can improve the federal design-build landscape, submit it for consideration.
