“The conference was a great opportunity to hear about current trends and issues relevant to design-build in the transportation sector. Furthermore, it's always helpful to network with other to gain a broader perspective from other owners, from practitioners, and from contractors nationwide.”

Irene Chhor, Denver International Airport

“The Design-Build for Transportation/Aviation Conference greatly exceeded my expectations. Being new to design-build, it was an incredible opportunity to network with others from all over the country, and to gain valuable insight and review lessons learned to be successful in design-build delivery. DBIA and this conference setting provided plenty of discussion and a variety of topics to be dissected, effectively and efficiently. As an Owner, this conference really delivered on what it means to truly be a successful owner when you’ve selected this delivery method."

Victor Lopez, San Bernardino County Transportation Authority

“This was my first time attending the conference and was very pleased with the conference. It was a great opportunity to network with others in our industry, learn about various interesting projects around the country, and to hear more about lessons learned. Definitely plan to attend future conferences.”

Avoid Email Scammers

Don’t Be Fooled!

Unfortunately, emails are circulating that offer to sell attendee lists for many of DBIA’s conferences. These emails are sent by scammers impersonating DBIA. DBIA does not sell its exhibitor or attendee lists, and no third-party is authorized to distribute or sell any lists related to our events.

Statements claiming to offer our attendee lists are fraudulent. Conference exhibitors will only obtain lists directly from DBIA Conferences staff, based on their contracted language.

If you receive emails that claim to sell DBIA conference attendee lists, do not engage with the sender and mark the message as junk/spam immediately.
